Slows down as much as it speeds up.

John Seiffer "Business Advisor", Amazon
7 July 2014
  • Summary: Very easy to install - just plug it in and it finds the signal. BUT it seems to slow down reception not speed it up. I do get more bars in the dead rooms but things go really slow. I've read that extenders rarely work so I don't think it's just this model.

Wireless range extender

Selchow Ingo, Amazon
24 January 2014
  • Summary: Configuration worked manually but not with WPS to connect to router. Works good when it's in the same room, but when moving it where you want the extra signal strength it's very weak and the connection drops and unit needs to be reset manually. Very disappointing product, sent it back. Zyxel Tech Support is very helpful. Sales pointed to another extender which worked much better, Zyxel WAP3205v2.

Revised Opinion-Not as good as I thought

Ed, Amazon
30 December 2013
  • Summary: The wireless network in our home did not provide the signal strength in the one room in our home where we spend the most time so I found the wireless range extender worth a try. I found the directions that are included with the unit to be less than necessary for my 70 year old brain to get this device working. I called their toll free tech support line and was connected with an agent immediately.

Can't run continously for more than 24 hours

K. Dang "Raw review", Amazon
12 July 2013
  • Summary: I bought this extender hoping that it could improve the wireless range in my house. There are two problems with this product. Problem #1 - It would not work if you have long wireless router connection password. I had to dumb down my password in order for this product to connect. Problem #2 - The range extender would stop working after 24 hours and I have to recycle the power to get it working again. I would not recommend it.

It works*

Alexander Morgenstern, Amazon
8 July 2013
  • Summary: I bought this hoping to boost signal from my bedroom, to the living room. I didn't try doing the WPS, so I can't make any comment regarding that, however, the manual setup seemed to go through just fine. After everything was decidedly "working" I wanted to run some benchmarks to see how much, and there was no discernible difference at all.

Did not work for me

Bevan A. Geslani, M.D., Amazon
7 June 2013
  • Summary: I had a hard time connecting with the base Verizon DSL router. I had to call tech support (person who helped was good). However it worked for a while but lost its connection later. I had to return the product.
