Will NOT work with "most networks"

Spencer, Amazon
15 January 2012
  • Summary: My town has provided free WiFi for all of its residents (I am NOT stealing my neighbors internet!), but the signal strength in my condo is pretty low. I purchased this range extender to improve signal strength in my place. I began trying to set this unit up, but after hours of changing settings no luck. This device certainly tries to look for Cisco (Linksys) based networks, and doesn't want to work with anything else.

Didn't Work For Me

SoCalGuy, Amazon
7 October 2011
  • Summary: Took a chance on this inexpensive product. I was having trouble getting a decent internet signal on my laptop which is usually a few rooms away from my modem and router. This "extender" did nothing. It lit up nicely, but did not help with the signal. I tried it a few different places but no luck. Went to the store to get a better one and the guy there talked me in to a better router. I had a "G" router.

DONT BUY IT !!!

lw32, Amazon
16 March 2011
  • Summary: It is the most difficult range extender to set up. If your lucky it connects with no problems, NOTE!!! Disable your security on your router before you try to auto configure, if not get ready for the most frustrating experience of your life, and when you have finally had it, put in a drawer or stomp it in the ground! Then go to your electronics store and buy a Netgear range extender WN2000RPT, Linksys could really learn something from these guys about setup simplicity!

Compatibility of Cisco-Linksys WRE54G

  • Summary: You may wonder why Cisco is selling so many Refurbished Wireless-G Range Expanders. I found out the hard way. I bought one and received it on time from Amazon. I then tried to set it up using the guide on the product. Well I got repeated "Survey Failed" and could not proceed. Finally I accessed the Cisco Support team on an online Chat.
