Summary: Easy to set up and killer signal strength. Unfortunately, when set up, all connected machines could only communicate with the gateway and the internet. These machines were unable to see other machines on the internal network. I was not able to resolve the issue. Completely disappointing.
Summary: Set up was not as challenging as some of the reviews indicate, however, this booster destroyed the network. It seems this D-Link booster overrode the DHCP from the Verizon router, and began assigning its own IP addresses to all network members.
Summary: The web address in the instructions for setting up the D-Link Extender did not work. When I called D-Link customer help they informed me that this item was discontinued in 2008. D-Link stated this item is obsolete.
used product that didn't work and had no instructions

Summary: This was a used product but it looked like new as stated in the ad. The D-Link range extender arrived on time but there were no instructions or even a link to guide me where to find a manual or anything.
Summary: OK, so let's say up front that I'm no networking guru. But, I've setup lots of wireless routers with little or no assistance. For this one I gave up after a couple hours wasted futzing with settings, firmware updates etc, and instead bought a Airport Extreme router instead.
Summary: This looked like a bargain, but I wasted a day trying to set it up and never got it to work right. It played havoc with the IP addresses on my home network. I finally had to use the "time warp" function on my main PC to go back to the settings in place before I tried to install this.
Summary: We sat there for 3 hours trying to get, so I had to go out and buy a new one from the store. it to work and nothing, it wouldn't do what it was suppose to do. I would return it but I have no money to ship it back.
Summary: This is a very goog range extender, the problem is that is a little tricky to set up, because if your router is not D-link, like mine. you have to work with the IP Address and set one, so the Router and extender can look at each other.
