The Diamond WR300N wireless range extender and repeater will increase the range of your existing wireless coverage removing those wireless dead spots and or weak areas of your network. It's like having three devices in one: the WR300N functions as a wireless extender to increase your wireless range, a standalone wireless access point to create a wireless network, and a wireless bridge to extend your home's Ethernet coverage.
The small form factor lets you plug the unit directly to the wall socket without any additional cables. For frequent travelers, this means you can bring your own wireless network on the road. Use in your hotel room to transform your wired Ethernet internet access into a mobile Wi-Fi network to share with multiple notebooks and smartphones.

Customer Reviews of DIAMOND WR300N 300Mbps 802.11n Wireless Range Extender
Provides strong signal to smart devices and TVs, but problems with Windows 7 OS computer used for setup - keeps displaying an IP conflict error message...other than that - works
Just what the doctor ordered!6/17/2013
I don't understand why someone would rate a product poor because they haven't taken the 10 seconds necessary to read the three steps necessary to configure the device. I wanted internet access on my boat dock (you got to listen to music and check the weather, right?). Concrete house was preventing signal to the dock. Setup couldn’t be any easier. Plug it into your computer with the supplied network cable (yes you have to plug it into the wall too), open browser, and configure to your wireless router. After this just simply remove the network cable and plug it in where that you still have signal but need to extend elsewhere. I plug mine into an outside outlet on the house and now everyone has internet on the dock! Now if I could just get them to TALK to one another, that would be great. Being able to provide wireless support to several people when all you have is one wired connection is a great plus.
Not as easy to set up as claimed6/9/2013
I was hoping this would solve my problem, but no such luck. I have had this a couple weeks, and still haven't been able to configure it. I Haven't had time to try to call customer service yet. I am going to give it one more try, but am thinking about sending it back.
Works excellent if you want to expand your 2.4GHz5/13/2013
My Netgear WNDR3700 router sits in one end of the house, and I get spotty connection in my living room which is all the way on the other side. After 5 walls and a good 50 ft away my gaming consoles and smart TV gets extremely weak WiFi connection. So I bit the bullet and gave this extender a try. It comes in a retail box and includes the unit itself, CD (not needed to setup), manual, and a 6' CAT5 cable. All you have to do is plug the unit into an outlet, then plug the extender to a laptop or computer via CAT5 cable to set it up using its built-in interface (it sorta looks and works like a typical router web interface), select and connect to your WiFi network, unplug the extender and place it to a desire location where it can expand your WiFi range to reach a spot you want. That's it. Works like a charm, no hassle set up. Just follow the direction on the quick setup guide. If you want to use the extender on a different network later on, you just need to press the reset button on the bottom, and you'll be able to set it up like new again in a new network.
This unit was easy to set up and works great. Excellent value.
This literally took me less than five minutes to set-up and it's working perfectly. I bought it because our iPhone 5's were having a hard time staying connected from the second floor to our first floor router. This immediately fixed the problem. We haven't been dropped from wifi since we plugged it in. Now our laptop and iPhones have full bars from everywhere in the house. It was also shipped in 1 day. HIGHLY recommend!
Easy to set up and works great6/18/2012
Rarely find a product like this one where the design is clever, the setup is simple, and it works perfectly. I purchased this for exactly what the name says: a range extender / repeater for an existing wireless network. I simnply unboxed it, connected it to my laptop, launched my browser, clicked on auto-configure, entered my encryption information and was done with the configuration. It was that simple.
