Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great! Fairly easy to set up, but may be a bit challenging for the complete novice. (IMHO, every computer user should familiarize themselves with their computer and network. Computers and networks are not like toasters-you shouldn't just plug them in and use them without knowing what you're doing. There are always important issues to be considered. Knowledge is power. Ignorance is perilous.)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Speed is slow for download, fine upload. Got it working finally. Not as easy as they make it out to be. only worked at best at 33% of routers normal download speed. Uploading was 100% of router speed. Tried to update firmware after hearing about recent FBI warning and the best they had was a beta update. Even slowed downloads down more. Then unpluged it and would not work again. Was going to try it in Access point mode to see if speed better but is now bricked it seems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Using this to isolate wireless IP cameras to the network I set this up for isolating my Wireless Camera network at Home. The setup was fairly easy except for bowser compatibility. I could not get the setup page to open on Microsoft Edge. Apparently the web page needs the java plugin. Internet Explorer worked fine.(as did chrome and firefox). The one thing that I did out of the norm was to mount the extender high on the wall using an extension cord. This improved the signal distance/strength significantly throughout the house and much better outside the house. I suggest this if you can convince the wife to have the 'appalling' (her words) visual appearance in her decorating scenario.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What is this junk? Following setup exactly as described in option two leads no way. In fact it is not possible to try again. The setup page is inacessible. Only the message "Looks like you've run in to an issue" Yeah. Looks like that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to Setup! Works great! This is one of the easiest gadgets to setup! You have two methods to set-up the range extender. The first method uses WPS, if your router supports it. I much prefer this method. The second method takes a little longer, but it gives you more control over the Wi-Fi RE's settings. You will also need to use a laptop for the second method. I recommend having the manual handy, to see and understand what each of the different LED colors means. For instance, you will get a solid orange LED if the Wi-Fi RE signal is too weak toward the Wi-Fi router, after setup. This helps determine the optimum location to place the RE. For it's size, the range of this Wi-Fi RE is impressive and is a good choice for smaller homes or apartments that have a Wi-Fi dead zone. However, this may not have enough coverage in larger home.
