Summary: I am not sure why the other reviews state that this unit is hard to setup. I went to NETGEARS website, followed the installation instructions & bam I have extended my WiFi network 'very easy' setup.
Summary: This refurbished Netgear N600 dual band Wi-Fi extender works as promised. I do like the fact that it has a USB and a WLAN connection, I use it with a CAT5e cable going into a Laptop in an upper floor with good results. Don't let the refurbished detail bother you ...
Summary: This was easy enough to setup and does an adequate job. I think my underlying problem is a poor range on my wireless router. I had to locate this range extender so close to the router (in the next bedroom) to pick up the signal that it has trouble reaching the furthest room in the house.
Excerpt: In a small medical practice, with the dual band router in the utility room some seven rooms away from the farthest exam room, 2GHz WiFi access was spotty and the 5GHz WiFi wasn't even making it back there at all. Total distance to the most remote room: ~100 feet and 6 walls.
Summary: I am glad that I read reviews on a lot of these before I ordered this one. So many had poor reviews and I wanted to get a signal pretty far from the main router. I did not expect much even considering the good parts I read about this one.
Excerpt: This range extender works ok for limited distances. You need to make sure it is positioned within range of the wireless router which takes some trial & error. My experience is that it extended the wireless signal only about 30 feet. There is only one Ethernet port which limits the usefulness.
