It was a bit of a waste of money

Marco Vinicius, Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: Bought this in the hopes to extend my wifi to the second floor of my apartment. It was a bit of a waste of money. The signal is so unreliable that it's completely unusable. It will show 3 to 4 bars but I'll get 56k level download speeds. Tried everything including what others tried online.

  • Summary: I just moved to my new house. My RT-N66U is still workable and I don’t want to spend more money for new unit. My friend suggests me to using repeater to extend my coverage. RP-N53 is pretty much an ideal model since they have signal indicator design that is very useful to find an ideal location with...

  • Summary: This works great. I have my sunroom and patio was getting enough signal. Now its great. I checked up and down load speed. Its no different than my wired connection. It maintains the same network but you do have to select the repeated network. iPhone selects it automatically.

RP-N53 Repeater. Finally, a strong signal for the whole house.

Robert Grant, Amazon

  • Summary: This unit has worked out great for me. The signal is as strong as the original router if fact part of the time my table will pick up this signal instead of the router signal which is closer.

Excellent except for (probably) rare problem

mathprof, Amazon
23 April 2015
  • Summary: Now that I have set it up correctly it works fine. However, there is a problem with the setup that I would guess is rare. If you are using a separate ssid for 2.4 and 5 ghz wifi then you must manually set up the repeater.

Works great, but you have to change the SSID name from the default.

M. Dean, Amazon
11 March 2015
  • Summary: Works great, but you do have to remember to change the SSID (WiFi name). When you first set it up, your are prompted for the SSID to attach too. You would think that, by default, it would use that SSID as the SSID that you wanted to expand. Nope.

Like others mentioned I'm having issues with the 5GHz frequency

  • Summary: Like others mentioned I'm having issues with the 5GHz frequency. It shows this frequency and I can connect to it but I believe it's just another 2.4GHz channel. I need to call support and see what gives.
