Summary: We bought this because our wifi modem is downstairs on one end of the house.. and the signal is weaker on the second floor. We tried this Extender in multiple locations and every time it had the same signal strength as the original wifi.
Summary: I bought this product with the belief that it would extend the range of my wifi in house. While it does do to an extent it has a weaker signal in those sections of the house i want covered than the origional antenna. I was certinatly expecting more.
Summary: I bought this Booster because in a part of my house my wifi speeds were considerably slower than the part of my house closer to the wifi router. I was hoping that placing this device in that part of my house it would boost the signal and therefore give me faster speeds. This was far from the case.
Summary: Easy to set up and configure. Assuming it's the case with similar kind of products, that your internet connection through this extender will be slower compared to if you connect to your main router directly.
Functions as sold, very poor documentation, adequate support

Summary: I spent 3 hours failing to configure this NetGear extender using my iPhone as the client WiFi device. Circuits & hand-shakes seemed to work, but I could only link to the pseudo-router (the repeater), and NOT to the internet. The tiny pamphlet one might consider a manual was ridiculously useless.
Summary: It works, but (as manual explains) it should only be used in "desperate" situations because its data transfer rate is MUCH, MUCH slower than your "home base" wifi. Tried to use it for streaming video: NO GO.
