Beware - Tech support is outsourced to a company that is more concerned with selling than helping

M. Feiner, Amazon
29 October 2014
  • Summary: Beware!! Netgear outsources their tech support to a company called Iyogi. I called the Netgear cust svc last night needing help to configure this product with a new Verizon router I had received. The tech asked for access to remotely access my computer, which I was unsure about, but I agreed to. Within 5 minutes, the tech said I needed extra services from him that would cost $350, in order to configure the router...

Speeds up to four time slower than the network that it extends! A total waste of money!

Mark D Penkower, Amazon
28 October 2014
  • Summary: This is a total waste of money. I purchased this to replace a Diamond Multimedia wireless range extender as the Diamond device didn't find a new 5 GHZ WIFI network. At least the Diamond extender did what is was supposed to do--It amplified the existing weak signal in parts of an apartment where the signal was weak, giving faster WIFI speeds in the process.

Dont buy this

Kenneth H. Pickover, Amazon
20 September 2014
  • Summary: Like most Netgear products Ive purchased in the past (I never learn) this one promised plug and play ease and did nothing but--at first--not work at all, then worked partially when an IT friend of mine tweaked it and this was after netgear customer service who was no help at all said it was a defective device.

  • Excerpt: Not nearly as powerful as promised. Barely extends the range of the wireless router 20 feet. Very disappointed.

  • Summary: Used this for one week. Finally ended up returning it to store. Would not hold a connection to internet for longer than 10 minutes then you would have to reboot.

Extended but caused other issues

SRQHoyas, Amazon
6 April 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this unit thinking is is one of the easiest to use and most powerful range extender on the market. After contacting NetGear to assist with set up which entailed much time on hold, my range much broader than without. Now the issue was that an error continued to plague my Windows operating system. It reported that there is 2 devices using the same IP address on my network.

just buy another decent router - a ranger extender is not needed

E. Henry Thripshaw, Amazon
23 February 2014
  • Summary: this is not really a range extender - it is just a router that connects to your base router and provides a relay from your devices to your base router by this device with separate SSIDs so your home network would have MyNet-1 (your original) and MyNet-2 plus MyNet-3 for the new dual band extender. The thing is that most newer routers would let you do the same thing.
