Netgear Universal Dual Band WiFi Extender (WN3500RP)
22 February 2013
Conclusion: The WN3500RP is a product we've been interested in testing for an admittedly-selfish reason; we have dead spots of our own that we're itching to kill. Our router (also a dual-band Netgear solution) is positioned on the ground floor of our three-storey property, and the top floor is notoriously bad for Wi-Fi reception. If we're lucky enough to get a connection at all, it tends to be at a basic 6Mbps and offers limited bandwidth.
Excerpt: Wi-Fi range extenders typically only come in one wireless flavour, for single-band 2.4 GHz. However given the fact that many people now have dual-band 5 GHz-capable routers it would be nice to have the option to use this band when you are using a wireless range extender. Netgear offers just that in its handsome WN3500RP. See all Wi-Fi and networking reviews .
