Excerpt: I got the Linksys RE 1000 because my daughter's computer in her room wouldn't pick up hardly any signal from my wireless setup. She was only getting one bar on the computer and could get on the internet but when that signal faded a little then she lost her connection and would have to try to log on again. I talked to a Staples tech and we decided to try this first and see what happened before investing in a stronger Wi Fi.
Excerpt: I needed an extender or bridge both to serve more wifi devices at one end of our house (growing kids and more smart devices) and to connect a bluray that is not wireless but is smart in a room without wired network access. After very fast delivery, within fifteen minutes of opening box and following instructions, the bridge is part of my network and all things wireless are at the wrong end of the house.
