Excerpt: 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: I just moved to a new apartment and unfortunately, I wasn't getting any good signal. So I decided to give this booster a shot even after some not so good reviews. Well, I just got the booster yesterday and i have to say the product is as described except for some minor problems during installation.
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.
Its ok for its intended use, nothing more but has slow speeds.

Summary: The product works OK after it's configured but the setup process wasn't painless. First, it kept asking for username/password during initial installation. Apparently this is a known problem - NetGear website states that some units have been shipped with non-default settings and instructs to perform...
