  • Summary: The NETGEAR Universal WiFi Range Extender is a great product when it is doing its job. The problem is that two or three times a day it will drop the signal and will have to be rebooted. Most of the time this happens when the signal is not being used but sometimes even when there is a movie going through chromecast it will drop it. At this point I feel like biting the bullet and going with a wired set up is the solution.

  • Summary: As a former cable internet user, I had to switch to DSL because of lack of affordable cable internet service my specific geographical area. Bought this product since it was a combo modem/router. Worked reasonably well with a LAN ethernet connection but was a total loser when being used via my wireless. Only had an effective wifi range of around 10 ft. Anything more than that and the speed dropped from 10 mbps to less than 1 mbps.

  • Excerpt: Looked easy to setup but then it virtually does not work at all. When you try to get on website to change settings for netgear, it does not exist!
  • Cons: Difficult To Set Up, Slow Connection Speed, Unreliable connection

  • Summary: Refurbished unit. Required download of Setup and User Guides. Setup worked well. Unit losses connection to WiFi Router at least once a day. My laptop and tablet appear to have a good connection but can't get to the internet. Turn the Netgear range extender off then on, it reestablishes connection to my main WiFi Router and all is well again until it is not. Then do it again. I may try to see if a new firmware is available.

Not So Hot

  • Summary: Initial set up was quick and easy but wifi was unsecure; after about a week it started to redirect my browers to the Netgear site because it wants me do some kind of configuration. But I can't figure out exactly what it wants. Now it redirects my browsers to the Cisco site which is asking for a password which I don't have. No customer support whatsoever.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast Connection Speed
  • Cons: Not Secure, Unreliable connection

  • Summary: No instructions or software came with this router other than to go to Netgear website. Drivers on Netgear web site disable our entire wifi system ( all netgear routers) and fail to connect this router to network. Pretty much a nightmare for us.
