Summary: This is an amazing bit of kit which has transformed wifi reception throughout our house. Additionally it has enhanced the capability of our Sonos controllers - remarkable! Simple to instal too.
Summary: I bought this product. It had a better range that the "TP LINK TL-WA830RE Range Extender", although neither say much about range on their box. As a non-technical person, I guess this is what you get for the extra cost.
Netgear WN3000RP Universal WiFi Range Extender: Expand your horizons
18 July 2011
Summary: If you live in the 21st Century and have an internet connection then you've probably used WiFi. Gone are the days of plugging your computer into a socket in the wall, now all you need is to press your wireless button and away you go! Unfortunately this only works if you can get a bloody signal. If you live in the 21st Century and have used WiFi then you've probably used come to a point where you can't get a signal from your router.
Summary: Without this Wi-Fi range extender, our Roku didn't work at all. Now, our Roku works great! We had to find the "Sweet Spot" to plug it in. Our 11 year old son set it up, so it isn't difficult. No wires to worry about, just plug it into a wall outlet. We do Highly Recommend!
Excerpt: Have an older Netgear Router that works great. Decided to get a Netgear Extender to expand my network. Thought using the same manufacturer would work well. Not! Documentation included in the box and on the website didn't help. Initiated several chat/phone calls/emails, no solution. Was also hard to understand the "English" being spoken during phone calls. It took me about a week or two of trying everything I could do to make it function.
Summary: This product does not work as advertise and I would not recommend it at all. It did not help with the range of the Wi-Fi at all. Installation was extremely difficult and when I called the help line for support midway in the conversation I was disconnected. Luckily at this point I was able to complete the installation myself. Another issue was the instructions were incorrect. It has a website it states to go to and it will not let you connect to it.
