Works great! Highly recommended!

by Shinta on 9/16/2013

This unit works well. It supports both the 2.4 and the 5 ghz bands, and the a/b/g/n flavors of wifi. It's pretty small, about the size of 2 packs of cigarettes. I tried it first in 2.4 ghz mode, and used it with my laptop and a friend tried his xbox, both worked fine with nice range and no drops. I was able to get a nice 3- 4 bars at the neighbors house with the extender just inside my house at a window in a wall closest to the neighbor. I then switched it to 5 ghz. There is no interference in this band, very few people use it, or even know about it yet.... so this is a good thing, better bandwidth, no interference. However, the range is shorter, so it's kind of a trade off. I had just happened to get a 5 ghz capable card for my desktop, so I was able to test it with that. I do only get 3 bars whereas I can get 4 in the 2.4 ghz, but the lack of others in the band makes up for it. Your mileage will vary, just have to try it, do speed tests, or see what looks like it's faster in your instance. Overall this is a solid product with some nice options, and it works like a charm.

I tried every way of installing this according to the (downloaded) manual & never got the signal strength light to indicate that the unit was working. Finally I got it to work by locating it away from the router (2 rooms away) and doing the WPS installation. I also enabled the SSID to be broadcast but I'm not sure that is necessary. It has worked well for the 2 days since installation. But I spent about 3 hours fooling with it & was about ready to send it back until I hit upon the "magic"... Read More

More speed.
Provides the fastest repeating Wi-Fi speeds with a 3 X 3 antenna array on both the 2.4 and 5 Ghz bands. With more antennas you get faster, stronger and more reliable network coverage in more places in your home.

Find the right spot easily.
The convenient Wi-Fi signal strength indicator lights on the front of the range extender make it easy to find the optimal location in your home. If the first set of lights are on, your wireless signal is strong enough for Internet use.

If all the lights are on you found your optimal location to enjoy anything from, downloading files, chatting and streaming HD entertainment.

Selectable Dual-Bands.
Easily choose between the 2.4 and 5Ghz bands with the flip of a switch; no software or PC required. The 2.4 Ghz band gives you a wider range and the 5 Ghz band gives you a smaller range with faster performance. Now you can stream videos, download music or chat with loved ones in areas of your home that once didn't have connection.

Easy setup.
No CD or software is needed, ever. With a hassle-free setup that is as easy as pushing two buttons (WPS) you can extend the reach of your network in your home, in minutes.
