Netgear equipment always used to be good solid, reliable, value for money equipment for setting up home networks, and in the past I have recommended and set up home networks for family, friends and colleagues using Netgear equipment.

Unfortunately in more recent times I have had the misfortunate to experience extremely poor wireless routers, powerline adapters, NAS devices and now this Wi-Fi extender made by them.

As others have commented, the WPS connection to a BT HomeHub just doesn't seem to work. No big deal for me, I always prefer to get into the guts of the device and setup the connection manually, so went for this option instead, and got the extender to talk to my HomeHub successfully.

The reason for buying a WiFi extender? Obviously to extend my WiFi signal into the far corners of my house which are just on the edge of the otherwise excellent signal from the HomeHub.

Does this device do this? No.

Using an iPad to connect to the extender, I get the full three WiFi bars if I'm standing directly in front of the extender, within a few metres. If I move to the side of the extender, within the same room, barely 2m from it, it suddenly drops to 1 bar. In my other upstairs rooms, I'm getting 1 bar from the extender, while still managing 2 bars from the HomeHub.

So basically, utter rubbish.

OK, just to be clear - avoid this device, its awful

Having worked in I.T for over 15 years I know my way around routers, wi-fi and networking but this device just would not work. The funny thing is my main router in the house is also a Netgear - top of the range dual-band one with WPS and all the bells n whistles. So connecting the Netgear extender should be easy eh?.......nope.....3 hrs of pain before giving up and taking 5 mins to print off a returns form.

When the extender does it initial set-up it scans for wi-fi networks - and could see every single band router in my street (802.11b/g) on the 2.4ghz frequency BUT.....my dual-band router- nuthin.....even though it was 15 feet away. No dice. Setup lets you enter the SSID manually - this almost worked, created the -EXT network but before i could save settings - tells me the extender is out of range and rolls back to start of the wizard - Arrggghh!!

My guess here is that the device only works with older single band routers like the ones most ISP's dish out for free , or its just a poor product and its a complete hit or miss as to whether it will work. Most of my neighbours are with SKY and the extender could see various SSID's being broadcast, so i reckon the SKY router is probably single band.

Oh and my final thought - even it did connect, still not ideal as you need to configure every device in the house to connect to two networks....the original router SSID plus the new one SSID-EXT which doesn't run at the full speed of the main router. So as you wander around device will drop off one network before connecting to the other one. As i never got this far i cant say if this works well.......but i'm guessing not. Avoid.

We only needed this unit to extend our range a few feet more than the current range of our router but alas it couldn't do that. In fact when we placed this in the room next to the router the signal in that room was still stronger from the router than it was from this extender.

There are traffic lights to indicate the signal strength. If the extender is in the same room the light is green to show a good strength connection. However you only have to move it one room either way and the light is red. Our rooms are small, I am only talking 12ft from the router.

On the plus side the setup is a snip, you only press 2 buttons and bingo it has connected to your network and applied your current security settings. For us this was wpa2. I have given 2 stars purely for this.

No use to us though if it cannot actually extend the signal. What a shame, it seemed so hopeful. Our main router is Netgear and we have always been really happy with them.

Ah well time to box up and return. I think maybe we have been unlucky with a duff unit as there are so many positive reviews for this unit, hence why we bought it in the first place. It shows a poor strength connection in every room so maybe the aerial inside just

What a waste of money. Thought this would be a cheap solution to a poor WiFi area in the house I share. Positioned it 1/2 way between the (BT) router and the no coverage area as instructed, green light for the signal so I assumed all was good. Connected the laptop to set it up and......
The original BT signal is stronger than the _ext signal unless you hold your mobile next to it. Worse still it seems to kill the speed also. We don't have fast internet, average of 2.5 mbs/s but through the netgear extender all I could manage was 0.6 mbs/s?????

Don't waste your money on this rubbish. Shouldn't have gone for the cheap option and should have bought home plug solution in the first place.

I have tried this in several locations around the house but in each case the signal from it is even less than that of the WiFi router I am trying to boost. Perhaps it should have been called an 'anti-range extender'. I haven't read any of the other reviews, just took it at its word. In short it 'doesn't do what it says on the can'. In the end I went for one of those plug-in powerline adapters and these seem to do the job fairly well.
