Performance

The first unit worked, but had a loose power connector. Buy.com replaced it within a week. The second unit is working nicely. Although it extends the original signal well, I did notice reduced download speeds when tested with (speedtest.net). But this is imperceptible when surfing the internet. The setup was very easy using the web interface. The Hwren1 came with firmware 1.16 installed. Therefore, no need to update it. Just remember to match the channel and security settings of your parent router with the Hrwen1-extender. Also, changing out the original 3dBi antennas with 5dBi did not make any difference. Overall, a great extender.

The Repeater works perfectly. The set up was very easy and Now I have 5 bars in an area that only had 2. The web based configuration is very easy to navigate. Setting up the security was easy. I am a very happy customer and The speed is Great. Works with the Linksys WRT160N.

Works Great!

Although the first extender I received was defective, Buy.com replaced it with blazing speed. The second one worked like a charm. It took about 5 minutes to program and get running. I now have 100% signal all over my house. Read More
