Can't recommend. Broadcasts an SSID loud and clear, but connecting to it is borderline useless.

Hey Vin, Amazon

  • Summary: Essentially, this wireless range extender works by emitting an SSID similar, but not identical to that of your existing wireless access point (i.e. the one you're trying to extend).

Not that good

Thomas C., Newegg
8 June 2015
  • Summary: Returning for an RMA simply isn't worth it since I only paid 20 bucks. Other people seem to have had great luck with this device, so I think it's just a defective unit.
  • Pros: Super easy setup. When it is working, it's great.
  • Cons: My problem with this device is that my systems get limited connectivity on a daily basis. I have to unplug this device and plug it back in every day to get it working again. It is highly inconvenient.

  • Summary: I seem to have to unplug and replug this in all the time, and when you restart the router you have to go through the process of setting it up all over again. I need something like this in my house, open to suggestions.

  • Summary: After reading some of the positive reviews, I took the plunge and made the purchase. I should have reviewed the negative reviews as well. After upgrading the firmware to the latest version, I still have constant disconnects from this product.

Mario Chavez, Amazon

  • Summary: Took much longer to get to work then what I had hoped. And i'm no beginner with items like this. Needed to download an update. and still resets on its own sometimes and have to redo EVERYTHING. It now sits in the corner with nothing connected to it.

Make sure you understand what you're getting.

Keith Tate, Amazon
20 December 2014
  • Summary: On the plus side, it does make my network accessible outside the range of my wifi router as advertised. This (and many other products like it) don't really extend the wifi signal, but instead create a second network, and act as a gateway for devices on the secondary network to get back to the...

unreliable connection

Scott A., Newegg
30 June 2014
  • Summary: not sure why there is such a difference between devices. my computer has no problem with other networks.
  • Pros: small, cheap, works well for my iphone
  • Cons: My windows 8 computer is barely capable of connecting to the network created by the extender. When it does connect, it is a "limited" connection, meaning it cannot get internet access.
