Summary: I have always liked Netgear to begin with. I stay in hotels a lot of the time, and when I stay at one that has a weak signal from the main router, It is nice to have a repeater that can recieve the signal, boost it and then repeat the signal. Works great.
Excerpt: Have an older Netgear Router that works great. Decided to get a Netgear Extender to expand my network. Thought using the same manufacturer would work well. Not! Documentation included in the box and on the website didn't help. Initiated several chat/phone calls/emails, no solution. Was also hard to understand the "English" being spoken during phone calls. It took me about a week or two of trying everything I could do to make it function.
Excerpt: I purchased this wifi extender to fill the dead spots in our home. It does a pretty good job. my family is using less of our data package on our smartphones since I purchased this product. Occasionally when my kids are streaming movies on their laptops I have a poor connection on my cell phone. With 5 cell phones, 2 lap tops, and ipod and an ipad. We are getting a pretty good connection.
Excerpt: The instructions that come with the range extender are completely UNhelpful; however, the instructions on the companies web page are clear and easy to follow. We find that the old wifi is better in some locations and the new (with the range extender) is better in other locations so pay attention to your bars.
Excerpt: once I found good instructions (online) it was easy to set up - but there was insufficient advice on where to put it and we are still searching for the best place to cover all areas; I have a Mac and my wife has Windows 8 and both work fine
Excerpt: I purchased the Netgear N300 to put in our hallway to try and extend our wifi range. It was an easy install. I took out of the box and just plugged it in. Only took a few minutes to create the extra extension for our local router name. The device connected easily. The main issue I feel is with my local provider. Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not work. It takes a while for it to connect. There is a bit more range.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Secure Connection
