Simple... but not customizable.

Kevin D., Newegg
31 August 2014
  • Summary: I would not buy this again if it broke. The lack of higher band frequencies and customization leaves me wanting more. If anyone of my less-than-techy-friends says they need an extender I will likely give them this and buy myself a better one.
  • Pros: Super easy to setup! I would absolutely order one of these for my mother in another state. I could talk her through setting it up over the phone; it's that easy. And the signal really is improved.
  • Cons: 1. CREATES A NEW NETWORK!! IT DOESN'T JUST EXTEND YOUR EXISTING ONE. 2. Only works on the low band of wireless networks.

  • Pros: The signal put out REALLY is much stronger than most (if not all) routers. The color coded led front is pretty nice for being able to check on your network. The phone app is really great.
  • Cons: This thing sets up a WHOLE NEW SSID, not just a mirror of your current network. You don't get to name this SSID, it's always "old network name_ 2ex".

  • Summary: It is primitively designed for SOHO use and it's cost is low. Set up page needs to be improved for more configuration options.
  • Pros: For common home network, it is simple and east to set up. Just follow the instructions and you should have it up in few minutes. It works on both 2.4 and 5 GHz spectrums and Airplay works perfectly fine.
  • Cons: If you have advanced wireless network, then you need to make sure that multicast is enabled and functioning for Airplay. Also, you need to ensure your wireless router does accept and respond arp request from passive client (this wireless bridge). If not, device connected to the bridge will not ge...

Weird problems

Adrian, Amazon
3 December 2013
  • Summary: Extender works with my computers, my iPad mini, WP8, and Android tab, but not my Samsung Smart TV(WIFI) nor any of my Blu-Ray players WIFI connections. The devices will connect to the network but not to the internet through the extender.

lenda81, Ciao
11 January 2014
  • Summary: Compré este aparato hace unos meses porque vivo en una casa de dos plantas y en la parte de abajo no me llegaba bien el wifi entonces un amigo que tiene uno parecido me lo recomendó.
  • Pros: Emite buena señal, tiene punto de acceso ethernet, botón de encendido y apagado
  • Cons: La configuración tiene muchos pasos, emite otra red wifi distinta al router principal
