Summary: The product worked to bring the internet to our second floor. But, I got it so my son's x-box would not lag. He still has that issue. I would say if you just want to use a computer it works fine. If you want to game or watch a movie, not so much.
Excerpt: I purchased this product because of the multiple wireless devices in my home. The Internet had become very slow, especially for the non-wireless computers. My children had a lot of difficulty with the school linked homework on the primary wired home computer.
Excerpt: Had initial problems getting it to establish internet connection. Once I was able to , did not find any noticeable improvement when performing Speed test. Even relocating it to various outlets. Only significant improvement was to use Ethernet connection from my laptop to the extender.
Excerpt: Netgear set-up wizard made connection easy. The extender did the job initially. The problem is that the extender continually drops connection to the router and access to the internet. The only way to correct this condition is to unplug the extender and hope that the extender reboots.
Summary: this did not fit my needs. it has to be reset each time from the main router. for me that it is to much trouble. the router is in another house, we loose power a lot, hassle hassle hassle.plus I have very limited outlets. it takes up both plug in places.
Excerpt: I do love this product. I originally bought this product for an XBOX 360 but since that got sold off and replaced with a computer, I have been using it for that ever since. It has a great signal range.
Excerpt: I would have given this a 5 star since it does a great job of increasing the range throughout my large home. But I only gave it a 3 star because it was not easy to set up on the computer. I was not aware that there was so much to do within a program, in order for it work.
Summary: I installed the NETGEAR Universal WI-FI Range Extender during a trip to use a neighbors and friend's WIFI network so that I could use my laptop in the next house. Without the Netgear WI-FI Range Extender I only had a 1 to 2 strength signal.
