  • Summary: Terrible documentation, but the device itself works really well and operates seamlessly once you get it configured the right way. Was also able to get customer support on the phone for configuration issues and they were actually helpful.

Francis, Amazon

  • Summary: The device was easy to set up thru my Ipad with wireless connection. It took no more than 5 minutes. No ethernet cable or setting up the ethernet port on my laptop, etc. However, the Ipad would not connect after the extender was set up.

The trick to getting most of the repeaters to work ...

CraigG, Amazon
12 August 2014
  • Summary: The trick to getting most of the repeaters to work is to set the routers to 20Mhz, not 20/40 Auto. The problem with this device is the way the configuration behaves after you have set it up.

Does an OK job

MACC, TigerDirect.com
15 March 2014
  • Summary: Found that only way to get a 100% connection was to plug it in to an outlet in the same room as my router. When plugged in where I need it I get the fast blink indicating about 60% connection. It does the job though

Only marginal improvement

Gene, TigerDirect.com
8 February 2014
  • Summary: The device was easy to configure but only provides marginally better Wi-Fi performance. I am using it in the repeater mode and hoped to extend strong Wi-Fi by about 30 feet. I have tried several different locations for the unit, but the best it does is provide about 10 feet additional range.
