Summary: I actually bought this at BestBuy; it was the same price as Prime. This extender pierces walls like a bunker-buster. Fastlane also factually helps - I'm using it right now to write this review. For the price, this was a bargain.
Summary: The only disadvantage I'll note is that the extender creates another network while the original network remains active, so sometimes I have to manually switch from the original network to the new one, depending on which network my phone/ipad connects to first.
Changed the WiFi Usability in Our House Instantly!

Summary: For the price, this can't be beat. I spent a ton of time searching for a solid extender because my router wasn't cutting in a 2-story house. Adding this extender on the other floor changed the usability of the Internet in our house in an instant. Setup is easy.
Summary: So it works like a charm. We have a 4000 sq ft house with 2 floors and a walk out basement. A Linksys WRT1900AC router sits upstairs with the NetGear AC1200 on the first floor. The extender runs in Fastlane mode with the receiving channel from the router at 5ghz and the transmitting client channel...
Summary: Had really high hopes for this unit based on the many great reviews. So when I got mine in my new 3,000 square-foot two-story home and still had a really poor signal upstairs, you can imagine my disappointment. I'm an IT professional, so I understand wireless networking and reception.
Summary: I recently got a Linksys ac2400 router. So far, it has worked fine. However, I have a large house, so I need an extender. I bought a netgear ac1200 at Best Buy. I used the wps buttons to connect the extender to the router. When I tried to connect the devices, my router's password was rejected.
Great product with some nice features. Worked much better than expected and changed my opinion of wireless extenders in general

Summary: I am an electrical contractor that specializes in home automation, home theater, whole house audio, and networking and I do a lot of work on difficult wireless environments. Typically I use mesh networks that are all hardwired and point to point beam.
Summary: Bought this to extend my wireless network to the other end of our 1400 sqft home. This connected great over 5Ghz and was able to broadcast a solid 5Ghz & 2.4Ghz connection. Speeds over 5Ghz never lost our 100Mbit connection however the 2.4Ghz struggled with other signals near by and speeds slowed.
Summary: If I could give this a zero star rating, I would. This is a nice looking product but the setup was ENTIRELY too complex, it creates two distinct WiFi connections (with security keys and SSIDs that are different from the wireless router's), and it dropped WiFi connections to devices (that were 5-10...
