Summary: The location of my router caused a weak signal to some areas of the house. Since I wasn't able to relocate the router, I purchased the wifi extender. Problem solved and it allows me to keep my security settings.
Pros: Resolved the wifi "dead" spots in my two story house
Summary: I debated buying a new router until I saw this Netgear Extender. After talking about it with the Best Buy store associate, I figured it was worth a try since I had 15 days to return it if not happy. I had to contact NetGear tech support and they remotely reset my router before it worked with the Extender. Once that was done, it has worked near flawlessly.
Pros: Easy to use because you don't have to do anything, it just works!
Cons: It took a couple of attempts to get it to connect with my router.
Summary: This extender has made my whole house Wi-Fi friendly. I would recommend to anyone having problems with "dead spots" or low level reception areas in their home. It was easy to set up and is performing great. Wish I would have gotten it earlier. Keeps me from having to use my cellular data time while in parts of my house.
Summary: I researched several options for my house since my basement was not receiving a strong wifi signal. My initial desire was to put another access point in the basement but this was a quick and easy way...and it worked. Installation and set-up was 10 mins and I was good to go.
Summary: I ordered this from Best Buy on line so if there was a problem I could return it to the store. As it turned out the first one quit the night after I installed it so I went to the local store and exchanged it. The second one worked great, it has a strong signal and was easy to set up. Now I've have Wi-Fi in the back of the house.
Pros: It does an excellent job of enhancing the wifi signal.
Cons: The first one just quit working after the first day.
