 Very easy to install, buy this product

If like me your wi fi signal doesn't reach all rooms in your house this little box of tricks is all you need. I spent ages looking for a reasonably priced device that would do the job but was put off by all the tales of woe about how difficult the whole process was. I am not brilliant at networking, I usually leave it up to my eldest son who seams to intuitively know what to do (along with the exasperated look he gives me when I have forgotten a pass word or something has stopped working). I was about to make a purchase having armed myself with all the reviews and tips on how to set the device up when I stumbled across a review that warned me from buying the one I was looking at and to get this one instead as it was "easy to set up". The draw back was it seamed expensive for what it was! We have all read "easy to install", 9 times out of 10 posted by some hood wearing youth bearly old enough to go to school however I took the plunge and pressed confirm!
It arrived promptly, I set aside an afternoon to install, prepared for the worst. My son stood on standby to come to my assistance ........I opened the box. To be honest this was the hardest part, it was working in minutes (OK I did have to ask what the pass word was to the main router ). I live in an old house with thick walls but I still get 4 to 5 bars (I did lift the main router off the floor which also helped). I now have internet on my TV, all very up to the minute don't you think! If you have read all of this then to cut a long story short I thoroughly recommend this product!

 It works, and it's quick to set up.

I bought this because I use my PC mostly in the room of my house furthest from my router. I had reception, but it was poor, making browsing a chore and streaming audio or video sometimes impossible. With the extender positioned at the midway point between my router and PC, signal strength shows as "excellent", and my problems are solved. Here's how I set it up, including the (minor) glitches:

1) Turn everything on. Wait for a minute for the light on the extender to turn green.
2) Try to connect to the extender's network. Fail to find it on the PC. Refresh the network list. Still not there. Refresh again. There it is, showing full strength. It's unsecured. Connect to it.
3) Open a browser and you are automatically taken to a set-up page, which allows you to duplicate the settings on your existing router and apply security. Enter your existing wifi network password (you ARE using a password on your wifi, right?)
4) The browser set up process now seems to have frozen. Nothing is happening, and you have been disconnected from the (now-secure) network. Manually connect yourself again, and you will be asked again for your password. (It would be nice if the instructions told you about this bit - i.e. when you secure the network it boots you off, and you then have to log back in).
5) Refresh your browser and it tells you you're done.

So, relatively painless. Note that my existing router was also a Netgear, which may or may not make a difference.

 Improve your wireless signal with relative ease

Having read around fifty reviews of this device, mostly good, I was hopeful that it would perform as the manufacturer states: I wasn't disappointed.

If you are familiar with setting up the basics of a wireless network, this will give you no trouble, it is easier to set up than a new router, and basically "clones" the set-up of your existing network through running the smart wizard when you first connect to it. After you have run the wizard you can then enter the device, like a router, and tweak it to your settings.

Having run the set-up you will now have 2 wireless networks (the device automatically takes the name from your SSID on your router and adds the _EXT extension to it) you will have one called "MySSID" (probably your downstairs network) and one that is called "MySSID_EXT" (probably your upstairs network)

It is recommended that only devices that are struggling with signal strength connect to the new _EXT network. In fact you can use the same SSID on the new device as your router to have one network name to connect to throughout the building. This may cause issues however as the device is intended to increase the signal of devices in dead spots and would be inherently slower albeit by milliseconds should every device in your network decide to route in through the extender. The new network name is also editable.

The set-up manual is adequate, although I would like to have seen more screenshots of the set-up process and also screenshots of the configuration pages, there are some handy FAQS in the manual if you get stuck and tips for gaining optimal performance.

Don't expect this device to be perfect though, a thick wall in a house is still a thick wall, and positioning of the extender can prove vital if you are trying to obtain a perfect or improved signal, this is also relevant to where your power outlets are, and also where your wife allows you to have it! Like a router it is best positioned away from walls, and if possible off the ground. With a couple of adjustments I found the sweet spot between the router and the upstairs pc and got a green connection (the device has a traffic light colour system for its connection to the router) and full strength on the pc.

Other points of note on the device are it has 4 Ethernet ports on it, so you could have 4 wired devices running off it as well as wireless. It also has a push "N" connect WPS (wi-fi protected set-up) button for connecting to WPS equipped pc's and devices, although it will not connect to your router using this button; only additional devices. There is the standard factory reset paper clip button, which maybe useful should you wish to start-up from scratch again.

If you wished to use this product for a large office or school etc you can have up to 4 of these devices inline to cover every corner of your building.

The build quality is reasonable, perhaps slightly flimsy, I am not a fan of the new shiny black plastic they use for products now, they pick up finger print marks badly and I think the finish could be improved.

You have to register this product before using the telephone support service offered, there is also various documents and updates available from Netgears support sites. The product does have an option to automatically check its firmware update every time you connect to the settings page, which is useful.

Overall this is a great product at a reasonable price for anyone wishing to improve their wireless signal around the house and I would happily recommend it.

 Superb Buy!

I was looking for a way to get WiFi in the back of my house, as my Netgear DGN1000 wasn't reaching.
Having read good reviews of this extender, I was still sceptical about it's ease of use and set-up. But it literally was a case of plugging it in to the mains. Turning it on, and then entering my existing Wifi's password. Then it was up and running.
Decent range on it means that I can practically link to it from anywhere in my house.
