About Me High bandwidth user
Current router didn't have the range for the entire house. Now with Universal Range Extender, I have excellent reception throughout the home
Very good product.
from Woodbridge, VA
Works great and has reduced the network disconnects that I experience.
Used this to extend wide bandwidth wifi from router in upstairs office in front of house to HDTV for HD video in lower level family room in the back room and works great! Very easy to set up and is easy to hide in a corner outlet. I highly recommend this product!
do not have one
from mobile, al
fast good delivery. had to return item and they make it as simple as could be. would order from them in the future
Good expander with poor instructions.
from Hartsdale, NY
It expands well my home network, covering former dead spots. The instructions are not that clear, allowing for some frustrations, until you understand what was really meant. The manual could use some copyrighting.
Works for me!
from Huntsville Al
Works very well for what I needed. Although my desktop was not all that far from where I was trying to use my tablet, iPhone, and blue ray player with built-in wifi, my Comcast modem and Net Gear wireless router would not suffice. I continued to get dropped service. This range extender was my last hope. It works great. Setup was simple and only took a few minutes. I couldn't be happier! Thanks for offering a great product and at a price that couldn't be beat!

Overall, A Very Good Product

() Overall Device Performance: 7.5 of 10.0.() Overall Device Value (Performance for its Price): 7.0 of 10.0.() Ease of Device Set-Up: 8.5 of 10.0.() How Cumbersome this Device is physically to place, and to adjust its 2 external antennas in a way that's likely to fit easily into an open space that you have for it: 6.5 of 10.0._________________________ I would rate this Device a 7.5 of 10.0 in its ability to pick up the WiFi signal that I bought it for. This rating is based on this Device having been placed about 30 feet away (and separated by a sheet rock wall) from the transmitting WiFi device from which this Device picks up its WiFi signal. So if you already can watch a streaming movie through your existing WiFi Network. And this basically works. But you find that there are occasional pauses in the movie, during which the movie may stop for a minute or two to load more of the movie (because the WiFi signal is not entirely strong enough when 30 feet from the WiFi transmitter to transmit without occasional glitches): Then I think that this Device could completely solve this WiFi limitation about 80%-to-85% of the time while its added actively to your existing WiFi configuration, (if that WiFi configuration involves the distances and WiFi signal separation of one sheet rock wall, that I describe above). So the above is regarding, I think, the issue of Signal Strength. In terms of Signal Speed enhancement (with the same configuration that I describe above), I would say that this Device could boost your WiFi Signal Speed (say, in downloading a large file to your WiFi-enabled computer through your existing WiFi configuration) by about one-third. So I find this WiFi Speed Increase from this Device's inclusion with my WiFi configuration to be: More than minimally faster, but not tremendously faster. Possible Additional Variables: I utilize this Device placed much closer to my WiFi receiving equipment than to the original WiFi transmitter from which this Device draws its WiFi signal. I think that the optimal placement of this Device to enhance WiFi Signal Strength/Range and to enhance WiFi Signal Speed, is placement exactly halfway between your WiFi receiving equipment and your original WiFi transmitting device. (This optimal Device placement was not workable with my set-up.) On the other hand, the original WiFi transmitter from which this Device picks up its WiFi signal is a top quality, individually purchased, expensive WiFi transmitter, that presumably transmits more or less the strongest WiFi signal that you can buy today to attach with an Ethernet cable directly to your Ethernet-wired connection.
