previously my wifi signal soon gets weak a room or 2 away from the router.
bought this.
plug in.
press a button on the router.
press a button on the extender, and wait a minute or so (be patient).
job done.
it seems to cover a much wider aread than my original router, there is no dropout anywhere over a large area (probably up to 100m, through lots of walls). it has never once let me down since plugging in.
quick, easy and reliable. FAB bit of kit.

EDIT. now been using for 10 months. Remains as reliable as day 1.
EDIT2. now been using for 21 months. Still no issues whatsoever.
EDIT3! (22nd October 2014). 3 years in, remains as good as day one.

UPDATE Dec 14. I have now tried the higher-spec Netgear EX6100 (see above comparison chart), it works just as well as this model. If you're wondering about the 5 GHz band and whether you need it, in my general day-to-day use it adds little benefit, and only newer devices are compatible with 5 GHz. IMO most people won't need or benefit from 5 GHz devices, and the cheaper/more basic models such as the WN3000RP remain perfectly adequate.

I researched this in a bid to find something that would extend my wireless coverage without me having to be a networking guru or go through a labyrinthine series of setup instructions. This item was a breeze. I simply selected the place where I wanted to improve wireless coverage and plugged it in. After switching on the wall socket, all I had to do was press a button on my router and then press a button on the unit. It connected to my router and I got a green (strong) signal indication. I searched for it on my network and found it under the same name as my router with an "-EXT" suffix. It used the same password as the existing network and I was able to connect to it without problems. If I unplug it and move it elsewhere, once it is switched on again it re-connects automatically to my router. I bought it for use with a "smart" TV in the bedroom and it performs well. The only issue is that it will occasionally drop the signal to the router and stop the item I am viewing. BBC iPlayer being a prime example and also Lovefilm. Having said that, just lately it has been working flawlessly. My other regret is that you can only have one of these in the system, which precludes me from filling the house with them. I bought one for my Daughter to extend her network into her attic room. The unit is plugged into a socket in one of the bedrooms below and again, it works really well. This was a great price and easy to install. I am very happy with my choice.

These really are very easy to set up and work just as described.
Top marks to Netgear, as always they have made a useful well thought out quality product.

The instructions are clear and concise and the device is not over complicated.
It is ideal to solve the common problem of poor wireless signal in parts of the home.
You often find that where your phone sockets are and where you can locate your master wireless router does not give a good wireless signal in all locations around your home. Maybe you wish to have a good signal in the back garden and the signal from your router located at the front of the house is blocked by the house walls. In my case the router is located upstairs and I was getting very poor signal strength in a downstairs extension.

To set up the extender locate a mains socket on the boundary of your current wireless reception. I used my laptop to check wireless signal in a couple of locations before plugging the extender in. You need a location which has good signal and is nearer to the location of poor signal strength than your existing wireless router.
Once plugged in one click of the button on the side initiates the connection process, lights on the front indicate this is happening, and the extender should automatically connect to your existing network in a minute or so.
If it fails to connect, possibly due to conflicting networks from your neighbours, you can prompt the extender to connect to your network by accessing the extender from a computer. There is a well presented interface which guides you through the process of manually configuring the extender. You can also adjust a number of other settings including restricting access to certain devices, security settings and IP addresses.

This wifi booster is brilliant ! For the first time I have a full wifi signal on my laptop and can get onto my wifi network from anywhere around my apartment. My son set this up for me but said it was straight forward. He is impressed by it and says it is very good quality. It actually out performs my router for signal strength... even when I'm sat nearer to the router, this Netgear Extender still shows the strongest signal from further away ! (see the attached screenshot) Money well spent for the difference it has made to my laptop and mobile devices. Highly Recommended. 5 Stars

I write this review as one who is using a BT Home hub 3. Despite the claims of BT that their router is the best on the market, its range in our 1960's built house dropped off quickly when our laptop was positioned any where else but in the room of the router. After much research of these reviews and also trying alternative products I decided to give the WN3000RP a try. I am currently composing this review whilst sitting in the garden!

The Range Extender really does do what it says on the tin. It didn't hook up to the router automatically, but was straight forward to do manually. I would suggest that potential buyers read through reviews of other Amazon purchasers as they really do give reassuring insight as to what is going on. The absence of CD software is a beneficial feature. The user documentation is quite adequate. It is always difficult to guage size from manufactuer's websites as they endeavour to show off the product design in the most elegant manner available. If placing into a gang circuit you might experience some difficulty inserting plugs into ajoining sockets. The manufacturers recommend in this instance that you twist the arials into the vertical position. Packaging sound and safe and delivered three days early by Royal Mail. Looking forward to looking up gardening information from my greenhouse.
