  • Summary: Instructions were simple enough; installation went as outlined. The _EXT network came up. But, none of the devices on the original network Would NOT Connect to the _EXT network. Very Disappointing.

Not Working all the time

Billy, Staples

  • Excerpt: It works most of the time--not all the times. For mysterious reasons, the extender lost the network signal from the router from time to time in my house. For reliable service, get something else.

3 Month Solution

Brian, TigerDirect.com
5 November 2014
  • Summary: Product worked well when i first set it up, performance seemed to decline over time. At the 3 month mark, I can get the unit to work for 1 to 2 days after a reset. Speed performance from day 1 to day 90 dropped by about 50%. I would pass on this.

Disappointing Performance

Hopeful Buyer, Staples
3 July 2014
  • 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.

did not work for me

KENNETH BERKUN, TigerDirect.com
15 May 2014
  • Summary: who knows, maybe i did something wrong. It would work briefly then stop. But the main trouble is that it wouldn't stay on the network. it would drop it and then sometimes it would pick it up again. But mostly not. I finally gave up and bought another unit which works as it should, the Diamond WR300NR.

It Might Work...Just Doesn't For Me

Prometheus, Staples
3 January 2014
  • 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.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up
  • Cons: Unreliable connection

good product

Maddys Gammy, Staples

  • 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
  • Cons: Difficult To Set Up
