    I bought this unit 2 years ago. I am very impressed by the signal strength of this extender.My home office is upstairs where my router is placed. It’s an old Netgear WNR1000v3 router which I bought 12 years ago. The signal strength outside my home office was very low, especially in the main floor I barely had any WIFI signal. I have a 70 MBPS internet connection and standing directly in front of the router, I get only 44MBPS speed. If I step out, it drops further.I ended up buying this extender and connected to my Home LAN network ethernet port downstairs in the master bedroom and vola. I now have 64 MBPS WIFi strength in most areas of the main floor except one guest bedroom which is far away from the extender on the other corner of the house.SO I bought another extender and tried to hook up to the same LAN in the guest bedroom but for some reason it didn’t workout. Seems like you can’t have multiple extenders on the same network online at the same time maybe. I’m not a networking expert, so I couldn’t figure out what was going on and hence I ended up returning the 2nd unit.But I am happy with my initial purchase and still have that unit in my master bedroom downstairs. Currently I am working from home and typing this up, sitting on my guest bedroom upstairs which is directly above the master bathroom next to the master bed where the extender is and I get 67 MBPS Internet speed compared to my old router, still in the home office, directly across the guest bedroom(in plain sight) and and it gives me barely 16 MBPS speed. I need a new router for sure. But this extender is definitely MY HERO and worth the price.My doggy chewed it up when I first bought it, so it has some scratches and dents on the exterior but still performs like a champ. 🙂

    Works great. Super easy setup with WPS (WiFi Protected Setup). We recently moved my wife’s office to the front of the house, and the router went with it. This meant that many devices in the rear of the house could not get a strong enough WiFi signal to operate, including our Alexa switches, Echo Dot, etc. So I bought this range extender in the hope that it would provide a stronger signal to the rest of the house – and it does. I was most impressed by ease of setup. I used the WPS feature on my Netgear router and in just a couple of button presses the extender was up and running. You do need to reselect the WiFi network on your devices – the new network will be the same name as your old router SSD + “_EXT”, so its easy to find and select. The unit is also quite a bit smaller than the one shown in their video which is nice since it takes up an electrical outlet space. Bottom line: this was a great purchase. Highly recommend.

    Chose this after a bit of study; braced myself for the install. Have 2.4 and 5G optic fiber bands which laughed audibly at my old repeaters. Need signal on three floors of old house (please pardon the trouble, giant telecom company. Router needs to be n close proximity to biggest, most fabulous TV downstairs that we stream from. And in line with home office. Thank you!)Anyway: Followed the repeater instructions (while keeping in mind the tips from the IT guy who posted a review here). Plugged this little baby in in near the router, waited nervously for it to connect – ah! – and then pressed the WPA button on this then my router. They chatted for a bit. Then: Bing! Connected. Repeated procedure. Little longer wait, then: Bing! 5G connected (apparently). Shut the repeater off, took it up two floors, and plugged it in near my office computer. Minute later, green lights, yass. Now my computer found four networks; two were extensions from this device. Just type in your router password and click – connected. No issues whatsoever. Of course, I speed-tested each one, because as you probably know, the number of bars is no reflection of the speed when you use a repeater. For me, the extended 5G connection was the winner – is blazing fast. And the install was *dead simple* – I think it took five minutes. Very happy and delighted! Highly recommend. (Will update if there is a need.)

    My main reason for getting this was due to a weak signal for my Ring door bell. I also had very weak signal in one of our bedrooms, but I had procrastinated on that one for years. I have an Apple 802.11ac router located in my office in the far corner of my house and it can’t easily be relocated, so after reading reviews I decided to give this a try. I should note that I am a Cisco certified Network Engineer for 20+ years, so I considered a lot of different options, many of which would have driven my wife crazy.You definitely need to let the wizard create the new SSIDs as you will run into issues trying to reuse the same one as your main router. I joined it to my wireless network and it created two additional SSIDs (myname_2GEXT, and myname_5GEXT). I joined the Ring to the new SSID and took each of our mobile devices into the ‘dead zone’ bedroom and joined them to the new SSIDs as well. The signal strength is now excellent throughout all of these areas. We just have to make sure we’ve joined the new SSID when in that one bedroom. That’s not a deal breaker for me. For geeks like me, RSSI dropped from -74 to -57 at my furthest corner.The price of extending the network is losing a bit more than half the speed, but I knew this coming into the project. If you manage those expectations, you will be happy also. I normally get 45-50 Mbps downloads on my main SSID. Using this extender, it drops to 15-18 Mbps. That’s still plenty for streaming multiple Netflix programs at the same time. It has the added benefit of essentially rate-limiting anything that I put on the new SSIDs, meaning that any devices that use the extended network cannot use all of my available bandwidth. Unbeknownst to my kids, their games and downloads will never again ruin a conference call.I should touch on placement. You need to put this closer to your main router than to the area you’re trying to cover. In my case it’s only about 20′ away from my router in the hallway. Wireless signal strength is greatly affected by wood and even more so by glass and metal. I suggest placing this no more than 1 closed door or 1 interior wall away from your router if possible. When planning where to put it, pick the location that is most free from interference. Most of my plugs are behind or under furniture, so that’s why the hallway was chosen.I would buy this again.

    Pros: This applies specifically to setting up this extender to accept Amazon Firestick content. The extender delivers a strong signal when placed between the TV and modem. My indication went from “Poor” to “Very Strong.” It’s small, unobtrusive and easy to see the front panel. This is an excellent choice. The images and streaming are better than 1080 cable broadcast. I give it 5 stars for the signal delivery and image quality, 3 stars for the difficulty in setting it up. Better instructions would have helped.Cons: I do not have a smart TV in the distant family room. I bought this because I have a Netgear modem and thought it would be “Plug and Play.” The instruction booklet says to pair the extender with your modem with the WPS buttons. I tried this several times and it would not pair Netgear to Netgear. Disappointing. The second method is to set up a new network. If your WSP option fails, you will need to discover the extender’s signal (…._2GEXT) and install a new network on your computer with passwords, etc. Turning on your TV, you must go through an extensive menu setting up the pairing. After two hours, the TV was now streaming Firestick content.Last headache: After getting the TV to work with the extender, I used the computer to check e-mail and my WiFi gave me messages that ISP protocol was absent. The extender setup crashed my Wifi and none of my other devices could access my modem. After an hour of attempts to reconnect everything using “Disconnect” and reinstalling my original network, I was ready to return the extender, Firestick and forget streaming. As a last effort, I unplugged my modem, Ethernet cable and phone line, waited five minutes and re-connected everything. Voila! Everything works: all my WiFi devices, televisions, Firestick, extender. Such a hassle, but the extra content is worth the effort. If possible, find a neighborhood nerd to help you.

    When it arrived and I took it out of the box I thought it was broken because the manual and directions kind of suck because to do the step by step directions don’t work right. It took some trial and error to figure it out because I thought I had a bad extender out of the box.1st thing you want to do is plug it into an outlet right next to your main router and what that does is let’s them sync up to each other.2nd thing you want to do when the extender power button is solid green is push the WPS button on your main router until it’s blinking and then push the WPS button on the extender.3rd thing you should see the lights on the extender light up on the Router, Power, and WPS.The Device light will stay unlit until you try and log into the extender.Click your WiFi settings and you will see a new 2.5ghz and a 5ghz and those are your new ones that are broadcast through the extender.I know this is confusing but you need to enter your password that you use on your Internet provider on the new extender and log into it and try both the 2.5ghz and the 5ghz and save both of them and you should see the Device light on the extender light up to green.When you have done the complete install with the WPS feature on your main router then you ready to move it to the other side of the house but don’t move it to far because you mighy not get a strong signal. Mine is about 20ft from my main router and it covers this old stone wall farmhouse perfect.The last thing you want to do is hit the WPS button on your router again and hit the WPS button on the extender again and if there within a good distance of each other and all lights are green then you should be up and running but if there not green then you will have to move it closer to your main router.If your main router doesn’t have a WPS option on it then you might have to call netgear online support to help you out because I didn’t find another way to install it correctly.Another thing is if the power ever does go our just sync them back up with the WPS button and wait like 5mins and it will work again because you already did all the setup.I leave mine on 24/7 and it runs a little warm here and there but that’s normal and I have never had any issues except power outages from thunder storms.Hope this helps someone else but every Internet providers router might be different but I’m using the new Comcast router on the triple play with the works.

    I am an intermediate computer user. I am in graphic design, but have no training in IT or computer science.This thing works quite well with my dual channel 5G router.However! I tried everything under the sun to get it to link up to my router using the computer. The instructions were clear on what to do. I followed them. It was so frustrating that I nearly returned it. I never called tech support.Then I tried setting it up on my iphone. It was set up with minimal fuss in less than 10 minutes. It was EASY actually. BUT! A big but here, if you are a novice with computers, routers, networks, etc, GOOD LUCK with trying to get this set up. If you are intermediate to advanced, you will have no problem but I recommend setting it up with your smart phone.This may be helpful to others. They don’t explain the big picture, probably because they feel like if you are buying this router wifi signal extender, you are already computer saavy.Here is my interpretation, so maybe another dummy like me can understand.1) The device makes a new wifi to connect to. Let me explain. Say when you get on your laptop or smart phone at home where you have a router and wifi, it shows your router’s default name as “e78u64” or maybe you renamed your connection as “Shackles.” Maybe you see your neighbor’s network and he named his “ImAretard” and your other neighbor’s is “Tardis”. You know the routine, you pick your network (Shackles), and you use the password printed on the router to log in your device, and it will be the one printed on the router unless you changed it yourself. It works that way to log in your smartphone, ipad, xbox, laptop, whatever it is you have that needs wifi.2) So what this litte box does (Wifi Extender) when you set it up near your router, is that is links to it but makes a new name. So if my router was called Shackles, it makes what looks like a new router in your list of wifi networks. It defaults to using your router’s name and adds _EXT to it. So when I use my iphone and go to settings and hit wifi, I can connect to Shackles or Shackles_EXT. The latter acts like another router but it is in reality just the extender you are connecting to that is linked to the original router.3) So what does it all mean? Well, say my router is in the den where I hang out and use my wifi devices. I can probably connect to Shackles since the signal is strong in the same room. Now say I have a detached garage in the back yard that has been converted into a workshop or maybe a game room with a pooltable where me and the guys hang out and have some beers and maybe play xbox. Welp, I find that I can’t get a good enough signal from my router in the den. Xbox is lagging big time on my online multiplayer first person shooter games. So I plug in the extender in the garage. Lo and behold I can connect to Shackles_EXT with a very strong signal and everything works great with no lag or slow connectuon.Smart people may think I’m an idiot for writing all this. I don’t care. I just hope it could help someone like me who didn’t understand how this damn thing worked out of the box.

    Summary: Easy to set up, functional and useful for extending Wi-FiPros- Expands both 2.4 & 5 GHz networks- Can be used as an Extender (Wi-Fi Repeater) or Access Point (Wired)- Inexpensive- Two antennasCons- Defaults to name of new networks by adding EXT to the end (see setup notes below)- Extends at a COMBINED max speed of 750 Mbps (but honestly, that’s fast enough)I really like this range extender. It’s a great product for a great price. My only gripe is that you aren’t told anywhere in the manual how to extend your network without creating additional network names. If your network is named, MyNetwork, the extender will default to a network name of MyNetwork-EXT.This means your devices will have to disconnect from your first network to pick up the new one. It’s not seamless and affects tablets, phones, etc. It also means you occasionally stay connected to the weaker network… This can be avoided, however, by doing the following.Start by plugging the extender into an outlet in the same room as your router. Do NOT user the WPS setup. Instead, follow the setup steps for using your computer (or device).When you get to naming the network(s), just use your existing Wi-Fi network name(s) AND password(s) for the extender network(s). When you finish, it will say you aren’t connected any longer,but don’t worry.At this point, unplug the extender and move it to where you want to extend your network. You’ll want it to be at least 2 bars to reliably extend your devices.On your device(s), turn the Wi-Fi of and back on, let it reconnect and you’ll see it pick up your original network, but with a stronger signal.Now your device will seamlessly transfer from your original router to the extender and back!At this point, this is a 5 star product. I’ll assess it’s functionality and reliability over the next 6 months and adjust my review if needed.

    I want to put a computer in a room that gets a poor signal. The extender was purchased to address this weak zone without having to pull wire.I have a Netgear 6050 router, about 4-5 years old, rated for AC750 for 2.4 and 5 GHz. This extender matched those specs from the same company so I expected it to be easy to install, and it was.We have a 2 story wood frame house. The router is in the basement and the location for the new computer is on the third floor on the opposite side of the house. Internet service to the house is from Optimim at 200 mbps.Testing was done with a new LG 8X ThinQ phone. For comparison, next to the router my new LG phone, using the Verizon speed test website I am getting about 120 to 145 mbps on 5 Ghz down and 40 to 50 up. 2.4 ghz running about 80 down and 35 up.At the weak zone, no extender, I was getting 5 ghz, about 12 to 20 down and 7-10 up. 2.4 running about 8-15 down and 5-8 up.I tested various midpoints for the extender At the best intermediate location, without extender 95 to 105 mbps up and 35 to 45 download speed on 5 Ghz.After installing the extender, testing in the weak zone, I am getting about 70 to 85 up on 5 Ghz and 30 to 40 down at the worst spot. On 2.4 I am getting 45 to 60 up and about 20 to 25 down.The numbers can vary quite a bit from test run to test run with latency showing 10 to 20 ms from test to test, so the numbers are typical for a set of tests. And the way I hold the phone can influence the results.I am very satisfied with the results and will be using the extender to attach the computer on the third floor. It will be used for general purpose internet, email, virtual meetings and occasional youtube.If this were a gaming machine or running heavy media work I would pull wire to this location.
