  • Summary: After receiving this product I was unable to set it up. I was on the phone with customer support for over 3 hours and we were still unable to get this set up. It is still unusable. Needless to say, I am totally unsatisfied!!!

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

  • 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 !!!

  • 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.

Don't deal with expanders if you can help it...

  • Summary: In one word...terrible. After failed attempts and miserable instructions I was finally able to synch to my wireless router. For some reason it would work for a while then stop. I would have to start the whole frustrating process all over again. Finally decided that the frustration wasn't worth it. Returned expander to Amazon, got rid of my wireless G router and went with an N router so range is no longer an issue. Wish I would have done that sooner, in the first place.

Worst item ever

Patrick Allen "pdpallen", Amazon
19 August 2008
  • Summary: I have been a loyal linksys user for many years. I purchased this to extend the range of my router. After receiving it I was unable to get it to work with my router. As a note I am very familiar with programming and networking of computers. I then called their support. After spending a hour on the phone talking to someone with extremely broken english it still did not work. I returned it and will not be purchasing another.

Junk

Fred from Red Bluff "Fred", Amazon
19 August 2008
  • Summary: Claims to be super easy to set up. All you have to do is plug in and push button. Thats a joke. Plug in and insert CD and first thing it does is Search for Networks. Couldnt find it. After tinkering and hacking, I finally got it to discover using the LAN cable that came in box. So I finally get up and running but everytime I reboot or turn off my laptop the thing has to be unplugged and re-plugged. Then I have to disconnect and reconnect to my network.

Non mantiene ciò che promette

  • Summary: Ho acquistato questo prodotto in marzo 2009 e da allora ho inutilmente cercato di farlo funzionare sulla mia rete, anche con l'aiuto dell'ottimo servizio di assistenza tecnica Linksys. L'apparecchio mi è già stato sostituito due volte (la prima volta con spese di spedizione a mio carico) dalla Linksys in quanto si pensava che fosse difettoso, ma anche i prodotti successivamente ricevuti hanno evidenziato gli stessi problemi.
  • Pros: Cortesia dell'assistenza tecnica Linksys
  • Cons: Il prodotto non consente di avere un'estensione stabile della copertura wireless
