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: Not terribly reliable. I bought this about 10 months before I posted the review. So I've had some time with it. The good: when it works it's pretty decent. Pulls a signal well over line of sight and within a home even around some corners provided they aren't concrete.
Summary: Although I already have Netgear Nighthawk WIFI modem downstairs I still had problems with streaming on my smart TVs upstairs. I called Netgear and they recommended the Netgear AC1200 extender which totally solved the problem. No more buffering and everyone is happy!
Throughput loss not that bad, especially on 5G extension and the option to use FastLane technology is fantastic.

Summary: Unfortunately due to how we set up all of our electronics, our WiFi router is set up downstairs in the far corner of our house. We were not getting a signal in our bedroom and bathroom on the second floor.
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...
Summary: I got this because I had trouble connecting to wifi at the opposite end of the house where my router was and I couldn't move my router to the middle of the house. I had this set up and working within 5 minutes of taking it out of the box and it works great and I can connect by wifi all over the...
Summary: I am very impressed by this Range extender, it really improved the speed and range of the wifi signal, I had been using a Asus RT-N12 and was getting download speeds around 10mbps, with the Netgear AC1200 I've been getting speeds around 25mbps using the Fastlane Technology feature.
Summary: I've had the Netgear EX6200 extender for two weeks, and (so far) I'm very happy with it. I now have WiFi coverage in my bedroom, which was out of range of my router. My home is a single level L-shaped ranch-style.
People said that you will get better Wi-Fi signal but speed will be compromised

Summary: First off I'm currently with AT&T U-verse with internet speed up to 75mbps, I have the Arris NVG589 Wi-Fi router & modem. My problem was that the modem would not send a strong enough Wi-Fi signal to my office. My internet speeds were only topping at 16mbps with two Wi-Fi bars.
