Summary: Used in repeater mode.Wasted hours with installation CD and various tech support people. Can't use the auto config mode if have web encription which most people do. I have an Actiontec MI424WR which is what Verizon uses for their Fios (fiberoptic) internet.
Summary: This product is worth every penny!! Easy setup, boosts your network range like it says it would!! I strongly recommend any household that is having signal strength issues. You do not have to be computer savvy to use and enjoy the benefits of this product.
Summary: I bought this product mainly to expand my wifi. It works really well if and only if you set it up through the web management. Dont use the Auto connect button. Within the web management, you can have it list all the wifi signal and you can choose one to connect to.
Summary: Forget the instructions that came with the product.....useless, and does not automaticaly find your existing network. However if you use the detailed instructions listed on the site from the previous reviews, works like a charm.
Summary: Bought this and after being on the phone for hours and hours with FOUR different technicians each trying the same fixes, they decided it didn't work. They wanted to replace it but then they found that it was discontinued. Yes, discontinued. Belkin doesn't sell a range extender any more.
Summary: The Belkin F5D7132 advertises "one button" automatic configuration to extend a detected wireless signal. Not quite. First attempt ended in failure. Second attempt once we had found the IP address of the wireless server still did not work.
Summary: The device works as advertised. My wireless router is in my den at one end of the house. My wireless reception at the other end of the house was almost non-existent. Now I get 4 out of 4 bars throughout the house and in my backyard as well.
Summary: This range extender works as advertised! I am very happy with the purchase. I was a little worried after reading some of the horror stories here, but I have to say, Chovy's review instructions (on this site) were just this ticket to get the repeater up and running in less than 30 minutes.
