  • Cons: coverage

My old Linksys extender did a much better job but would not work with a Netgear Router

Jack F. Saint, Amazon
9 July 2014
  • Summary: The extender only raised my range from one bar to two bars or about twenty feet. It was not worth the price. I purchased the extender because I changed routers from Limksys to Netgear. My old Linksys extender did a much better job but would not work with a Netgear Router.

Not effective and makes little difference, but good company .

Kagome "Reader of books", Amazon
7 May 2014
  • Summary: Didn't work at all. I tried close, tried far , tried medium, tried up, tried down. When it worked sometimes it made Internet worse. The company was nice enough to give me a refund so I would try other products from them.

Not a simple install for everyone!

Andy T., Amazon
13 February 2013
  • Summary: I wish it was a simple WPS button press on the booster and a simple WPS button press on the router to synch everything up quickly and painlessly. For those that successfully synched up within minutes, oh how I envy you! What I discovered was a whole other matter as "option 2" was my only option. I consider myself reasonably tech savvy.

  • Summary: BIt disappointed with this product. Having read the reviews I was hoping that it would do as advertised but the signal is weak at best. So don't really use it at all.

Overrated

R. Jeffries, Amazon
17 June 2014
  • Summary: I was thoroughly disappointed with this product, having used a very reliable Netgear router for years. When I moved to a sprawling bungalow I found the furthest rooms just weren't in range and looked for solutions. This isn't a solution, it's hopeless. I didn't even find it particularly easy to set up and even once it was running, the connection was appalling. My advice would be to forget wi-fi extenders and invest in a very reasonable set of powerline adaptors.

Very poor range and cannot connect from one room to the next through a single wall

Malvern Buyer, Amazon
16 June 2014
  • Summary: We only needed this unit to extend our range a few feet more than the current range of our router but alas it couldn't do that. In fact when we placed this in the room next to the router the signal in that room was still stronger from the router than it was from this extender. There are traffic lights to indicate the signal strength. If the extender is in the same room the light is green to show a good strength connection.
