Excerpt: The set up for this device appeared to be very simple but turned out otherwise. I had to get my web guy to set it up. After setup I have not seen any marked improvement of signal strength where I need it. I have only tried a couple of locations between the modem and area needing more signal strength. I'm sure it has something to do with the walls between the two. I did not think I would have to spend this much time fooling around with this gizmo.
Excerpt: I bought this range extender to extend the wifi signal in our one level house. Our house is not that big. But I cannot get a good wifi signal in our dining room where I want to use my IPad. The router is at the far end of the house near our two computers. I have purchased many new routers and none of them have a strong enough signal for our whole house. This extender often loses the signal completely.
Excerpt: This range extender did not meet expectations. The set up was as advertised, very simple and quick. Unfortunately, the unit did not improve our WiFi coverage much. The intent was to extend coverage to our kitchen and family room. We placed the extender about 25 feet from our router (Netgear too) , which was about midway between the kitchen and router.
Summary: Netgear does not recommend this product to boost your WiFi signal. Netgear only recommends connecting to this extender IF your wireless router is out of range. Netgear says the extender's efficiency is not as good as the router itself. I returned this product to the store.
