I used this to extend Wi-Fi for my Virgin Media Superhub. Set up was surprisingly easy, 10 minutes after opening the box I had it working.

For anyone else with a Virgin Media Superhub, here's what I did:
* Plug in the extender between your Superhub and the part of the house where you want to extend the WiFi signal to.
* Press the button on the extender labelled WPS.
* Walk to your Virgin Superhub. The lit up Virgin logo, that's actually a button. Press it.
* Walk to the part of the house you wanted to extend Wi-Fi signal to.
* Connect computers and devices in that area to the new Wi-Fi connection called: [your usual Wi-Fi connection]_2EXT

Simple to set up.

Very very pleased with this. I have patchy wifi from the router at the front of my house and tried to solve this a a few different ways over the years including power line adapters (decent but picks up a lot of interference, in my experience) and setting another router up as a repeater (way too complex) so went for the WN3500RP expecting more grief but was very pleasantly surprised.

Set up took a couple of minutes - I first tried to set up at the limits of my current wifi range and it didnt connect. I then did it in the same room, got them paired (pressed one button on each device) and then moved it back to another room (connected straight away).

Every now and again the signal will drop but is back within 30 seconds or so without having to walk into the other room, reboot etc.
Seemingly other reviewers here do need to reboot regularly but 5 days in and no problems

I debated getting the substantially cheaper 3000 model but went for the 3500 for two reasons - (a) it can be located higher up than the plug socket (on a desk say) so easier to reboot *if* you need to - like i say, I've been okay so far, and (b) the marginal benefit of the 2.4 and 5 ghz options - basically 2.4 is a wider spread signal so more likely to get through/around walls etc. but is slower than 5ghz, which is quicker but more easily blocked. As it happens, it has automatically set up both to run at the same time, so I can use 5 when it's there and flip over to 2.4 if any issues. Sweet

Overall I am delighted with this simple, non-intrusive, non-techy solution that does exactly what I need

This has worked out as good solution to a lack of wireless covearge in one part of my house. The positioning of the range extender is crucial to getting the best out of this device - it is not a cure all. The device works best when it has a good signal from the wireles router you are trying to extend from so you still may enounter issues if you are trying to get a signal through any stone or brick walls. In my case the problem was two brick walls in an L shape and I solved this not by putting the repeater directly in line between the router and where I wanted the signal but by off setting it getting the signal around the wall rather than through it.

This extender was purchased to overcome some steel beam issues which were killing my signal in parts of the house. It's paired with the R6300 and sends the dual band signal all over the place. I'm now getting good signal at the end of the garden, no problems.

Broadband provider is Virgin Media and the usual download speed is 50+MBps, so the gigabit wifi is more than adequate. Historically, Netgear installation has always been very straightforward, and this was no exception. Perhaps, I could have paid a bit more attention to detail but I didn't, and so the WN3500RP created its own extended networks with different name (_EXT). This just meant I had to set up new access points on the devices. The setup took all the security settngs from the existing network.

I run Netflix and Amazon Instant on different machines and of course the smartphones are consuming bandwidth as well. All coped with, mostly faultlessly. When there's a problem, it's invariably a Virgin Media hiccough.

A year later, the penny dropped and I realised that I could just change the extended networks to the same name as the original. I'd forgotten what to do, but the webchat guy sorted me out,

I've been using Netgear equiment for over 10 years - upgrading as we go and honestly, while there has been the occasional problem, Customer Service have always been ready and able to sort things out. That's why I stay with them.

I would just ask you to consider that it is a piece of manufactured electronics and they are being built in the '000s. Not every piece of kit is going to work immediately - yes, it can be non-working straight out of the box. This has happened to me only once and a working replacement was readily supplied.

Bought this as built an extension at my home and wanted to cover the new building.. Works so well and using the WPS function was so simple to set up.. Was up and running in less than 4 mins and from taking it out of the box and taking a glance over the quick setup guide. (2 minute read 1 minute to pair each band, simple)

Was immediately out streaming video over to my tablet with no issues.

Good product and so far highly recommend. There are cheaper alternatives but pleased I picked this Wifi extender.
