This is a simple to use, effective range extender. I bought it to extend the range of my Virginmedia super hub to the upper floors of my solid walled house. I used the option-2 of instructions to make it recognise my network using my Mac Air. It did it instantly delivering a very high all-bar-lit signal strength. Highly recommended.

I don't normally leave feedback for orders as they generally just do what they say on the tin and you get what you expect, but I had to write a review about this range extender. This product could not be more simple to set up or use, and the signal I have has gone from very poor indeed to full strength. If you have poor wifi signal where you are I strongly recommend buying this range extender. Ok maybe it is a little on the expensive side but didn't someone once say you get what you pay for? In this case it really is true. Buy it, it's brilliant.

My house is big. Not going to lie. My router could not reach my room in the corner of the house.

Bought this item, plugged it in, linked it using the button on it and on my router, found it with my laptop, inserted the Password......boom. Full 5 bars wireless.

Doesn't cut out. Its perfect. Just buy it.

And by the way, I bought mine from Currys but I wanted to leave feedback on here because I found it hard to find the right product. Took me ages. This is perfect!!

we got a new router which didn't have very big range and would have such terrible signal in are study which is on the other end on the house (not a very big house) but we had been searching and searching for something to make it stronger we got a usb adapter but still the signal would be 1 or 2 bars in are study after looking i found this we were really worried about buying it and it not working on us and then back to the drawing board on how to fix this problem, the reviews looked good so we went for it.

Very good instructions you don't have to be a tech nerd to set this up and it only took a couple of mins, to press a button on this product and then one on your router maybe different for others but then we had to look for a new network name which added ext to the end of your normal network name you use. we had are fingers crossed waiting for this to pop up and it did typed the password in and we all screamed we now have 5 bars in are study and we can walk anywhere in are house and the signal will not drop at all sooooo happy with this product i would honestly buy this product worth the buy.

We are now a happy family with 5 bar signal (:

Having tried other range extenders and finding problems with drop out I was a little reluctant to experiment with another radio type device but the reviews on this item were very good.
I live an a renovated early 20th century house built in the traditional style to my region and so with some internal stone walls over 3' thick.
I didn't expect great reception but another reviewer with a similar setup said they had been successful with this device.
I installed it reasonably easily; it really does it for itself, and placed it where I had positioned my earlier devices. I have a strong signal to all parts of the house. The link strength indicator that tells you how well the extender is receiving from the router is really useful and allowed me to place the device in the best spot, which was where I had hoped it would be and I am able to stream video from You Tube to spots that were dead before.
Living in a remote area i have only a comparatively slow BB connection (2.5MBPS) but I see no appreciable drop off in speed to any point in the house now.
I recommend this.
As I live in a bungalow I don't know how it works between levels in a multi-story home but I would be surprised if it could get through a 3' wall and not through a couple of floors.

I had the copper broadband from BT & had the modem plugged of an extension on the 1st floor but when I got BT Infinity, the modem has to be plugged into the main BT socket which happened to be downstairs, I was getting a very poor signal in some of the room s upstairs. I called BT who were not very helpful & could only suggest I get a booster.

After spending some time looking at different options, booster that simply plug in as this one & other that use the electric circuit in the house to provide the signal, I opted for this one based on its simplicity & reviews.

It arrived in super quick time & it took 2 mins to set up. I simply plugged it into a socket, switched it on, waited for the led lights to go green in the front, then pressed the WPS button on the side. 2 mins & i was getting 4 signal bars in the rooms where I was getting 1 or often none.

Great product and very simple to set up. I am very pleased with the product. I was not expecting to have to spend £40 to get wi-fi but as BT said they could not do anything, I was not happy to have top spend it but aatleast I have wi-fi access throughout the house.

Bought this booster over others based on feedback, and wasn't dissapointed. Does the job perfectly. We have 2 holiday cottages attached to our house, but in the end cottage the WiFi was very hit and miss. Put this in the middle cottage, and now all working great, no problems at all. Easy for us to install, as we are not very teckie, but installation was simple. For us, worth paying a little bit extra to get something that works, as apposed to buying a cheaper model, only to find it doesnt work, then having to get another one. Highly recommended.

Just set this up and seems to work fine. Extended the signal to parts of the house I couldn't get a signal in before. I had to set up using my iPad as it won't automatically connect to your existing router if it is WEP protected. However this was quite easy to do once my iPad picked up the netgear extender signal.. One thing I do notice is that you have to change between your router and extender manually if you move between the range of either. My iPad or phone don't seem to do this automatically. I will try various settings to see if this can be done, but no luck so far. All in all I am very pleased with this product and now wish I had got one sooner as my Daughter has been going over her 3G limit with Vodaphone as her room was just out of range. You need to move it around a little to suit the best location within the house to give best overall signal. One of the LED,s on the front is green when it has the best signal. This drops to Amber for an ok signal and Red when very poor signal. I would definitely recommend this if you have a poor signal in parts of your house as it is very easy to set up.

I had tried one of the other brands (TP Link) and spent three days on the phone to a support centre in China trying to get it to work. I gave up and sent it back. Therefore I guessdd that all WIFI range extenders would be equally poor and fiddly. However I read the reviews on this one and thought I'd chance it. Within five minutes of receiving this product I had it set up and working perfectly. I don't normally write reviews but felt obligated as this product was so good.

About a year ago, I bought some Zyxel 500MB/s homeplugs to reliably extend my network around the house. Of four homeplugs, two have had to be returned because of technical faults. Out of frustration, I bought this extender when I saw it on sale. I have to say that this is a fantastic unit. I have a Sky modem/router which does not have WPS push-and-connect. Although I'm pretty handy with a PC, I do find networking baffling. However, even without the push-and-go simplicity the unit is capable of, the webpage configuration couldn't have been easier. A few details entered, and minute or two for the unit to apply its settings, and now I have a strong wifi signal all around the house.

From past experience, Netgear makes reliable kit. Before the poorly-advised switch to Zyxel, I used to have 85MB/s Netgear homeplugs which lasted over 3 years without fault. I should have held on to those rather then sell them on when I got the Zyxels. I'm hoping for, and expecting the same sort of reliability from this wifi extender as I was getting from the Netgear homeplugs.
