Excerpt: Out of the box worked as advertised. After I connected the "sending" unit to my router with supplied ethernet cable and to a convenient 120v outlet, .....I then placed the receiver unit in another random outlet at the far end of the house, turned both units on, which "found and sync'd" with each other in less than a minute. Using the default PW supplied with the system, I easily acquired WiFi from the remote unit using my iPad.
Summary: Very disappointing. What I found instead is that it provided no improvement whatsoever over the standard 10 year old Bell modem I had in place. In fact there were parts of the house where service was even spottier than the Bell modem. The promise of the extension through the plug-in device was that it would extend coverage. It did not.
Summary: I have my wired modem and wireless router in the front of the house and needed a better wireless signal in the back. Installed the wireless extender in the back room and it consistently gives me 90-100% of my download speed over wireless when I'm in the same room. Using the LAN cable it give me 100%. If I'm in In the middle of the house it still gives me about 70% on wireless, good enough for streaming anything I need.
Summary: Looking for a solution to extend my wireless network to devices upstairs where signal strength was bad. Installation was a snap. Up and running in literally under 5 minutes. I have used it for a week now and have no issues.
Summary: I bought this for my bell set up as the network is at the back of the house but I'm at the front upstairs. I got less then 20% of wifi at my room and 0% if I walked to the window. Despite what a lot of people said I decided to try one of these devices out... It worked to my amazement. I get 100% single (50mb/s) when I used the wired connection and 30mb/s wireless. What's more 7ms ping... on wireless. The regular bell network was at 29ms.
Summary: OK so the wireless the adapter, the only part of the two that is wireless is the one you have to plug into the router the other one, that is not Wi-Fi enabled you can place anywhere. So tell me why would I want to plug the Wi-Fi one near the router where I don't need the Wi-Fi extension In the first place?
