  • Summary: I had trouble to make it work in the beginning and was thinking to return it. However, after I fondled it a little and repositioned it close to the router, it seemed working alright, but I noticed that the overall speed is somehow lower. This is still a good buy.

for what i needed it for

  • Summary: when i travel we have no signal at all if any on the ocean resort where we stay; this was a godsend once we figured out how to set it up; it took a while to find the "hot spot" to grab what signal we could and once we did we were good to go; 5 bars of signal!!! more than i have ever had at this place; so yes it does work; it just takes time; so be patient; go through the steps and find the hot spot; you may have to move it from window to window to get the best signal;

  • Summary: This was a little harder to set up then what was in the instruction, but once everything was entered has worked great. There are no big flashing lights which is great.

Works great, with basic settings.

  • Summary: The item I received looked exactly as pictured, but I ordered through Amazon, not a 3rd party seller. The extender worked like a charm, unless i changed the SSID or password to something other than that of the base router. This was not a big deal to me, so i did not look into a solution. Would have been nice but... May or may not be a big deal for some. I am currently using this in an upstairs bedroom in the corner of my split-level home.

works great...

  • Summary: This unit has done its job and extended the range on the other side of the house where a brick wall was decreasing the signal. The only downfall is that it seems that I have to reboot it every couple days, other than that, strong coverage.

Works, then loses host conection.

  • Summary: 10/6/13:The Extender is now working great after I changed the LAN IP address mode from DHCP to STATIC. I can now give it 4 stars again. Maybe I will jump it to 5 if things hold up. 10/1/13: The Extender works great for a while until there is nothing connected through it and then it loses connection to the host after a time and will never re-connect until it is power cycled. It puts out a good signal but loses internet access.The Ping Watchdog is no help.

Does what it's supposed to.

  • Summary: Does it repeat wifi? Yes. Is it easy to set up? Eh, kinda. This isn't plug and play, but I got it working in under an hour. The wizard is useless, but logging in directly did the trick. Is it reliable? Seems to be so far.
