Excerpt: I was disappointed in the performance of the N300. I was trying to use it to improve the wi-fi on the second floor of my apartment. The performance was erratic and the improvement was not very great. I expected that the signal would be almost as strong as on my first floor but that was not the case. Also, in small print it advises that the speed of the wi-fi is slowed by the use of the N300. So trying to watch video was not a seamless experience - a lot of buffering.
Summary: I liked the design if this device. Easy setup and connection to my wireless network. Poor performance however. Literally reduces my broadband speed coming out if the UVerse router by 30-40%. Fine for email, etc but can't really be used for my RoKu. I stopped connecting my devices to it and just deal with the sometimes poor connection due to the distance to my router. Don't have much choice based on where the phone jack is at. Rather have that then 1/2 speed broadband.
Excerpt: I purchased this product hoping that it might serve as a cheap and easy way to extend the range of our existing Wi-Fi network and bring some dead zones to life (it was on sale). It may in fact be able to do that for some situations but in our case it did not. We have one AP on level 1 and one AP on level 3. These afforded good coverage on level 2 but there were some weak signals at the edges. I thought that by placing this extender on level 2 we would be copasetic.
Excerpt: The box had been opened and resealed. The sales associate said if we have Verizon Fios, it would work well,, but not so well with Comcast. We do have Verizon so purchased it. The former buyer had password protected it before returning it. We are not tech savvy enough to deal with it. However, our son spent about half an hour and got it working. A friend got a new one and set it up himself.
Pros: Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection, Secure Connection
