Signal improvement not great

Jenni L Bradley, Amazon
27 May 2015
  • Summary: Signal strength is improved and positioning relative to router may need to be further explored, but strength improvement has not been as significant as I had hoped. I bought this used; no instructions accompanied the device for set up.

Works alright, but don't expect miracles

BCB, Amazon
15 December 2014
  • Summary: It seems to help with my range issues, but didn't get rid of them. My house is not THAT big (3700 square feet), but maybe on the bigger side. We have had wi-fi issue forever. A few years ago I bought the Linksys EA3500 router, which I was told should be fine for my needs.

NOT DUAL BAND!!!!!!

goheels16, Amazon
25 November 2014
  • Summary: NOT DUAL BAND!!!!!! This only does the 2.4Ghz and not 5Ghz. The N600 is the Dual Band version. As a Single Band device, it works like it should. Easy setup.

It works - If you know how to check

Joshua m., Newegg
18 August 2014
  • Summary: I had a VERY difficult time figuring out from the documentation as to HOW to set this up. I followed the included instructions three times and still couldn't figure out if I had set the device up correctly.
  • Pros: Unobtrusive Choice in power connections (direct prongs or a cable) Almost no settings to get wrong LED indicator is demure and simple (constant blinking = something's wrong) Devices can't distinguish from standard AP/Router
  • Cons: Minimal documentation (even on included media) Inability to select more than the Network to join No access to device after successful configuration Ethernet Port not needed (since device has a wireless setup port) Not powered to 1,000mw (maximum for a commercial wireless device)

Helping out a friend

Karen, Staples
17 July 2014
  • Excerpt: My friend has always weak signal in her house, so this time I did something about it. It worked ok, I wonder if a more expensive one would have worked better.

it works...somewhat.

J. Pearson "skinsjoe", Amazon
5 May 2014
  • Summary: It works, but I have found that the speed in other areas of the house actually goes down every time I use this. I have tried moving it several times with the same result.

Not Much Help

David O., Newegg

  • Pros: Inexpensive, easy setup, provides ethernet connection as well as wireless access.
  • Cons: Does not boost signal much.

Works - limited range

Kenneth R., Newegg
14 November 2013
  • Summary: I bought this to fill some dead spots in the wireless at church. The first time I went to connect to the router, I was about 40 feet away and it would not connect. When I scanned for wireless, it could not find the router.
  • Pros: Easy setup - WPS Web interface to tweak settings
  • Cons: Limited range. If I moved it more than 20 feet from router, performance degraded. If I moved it more than 30 feet from the router, it would not keep a connection to the router. Broadcast range is decent, I can connect at over 50 feet away.
