5.0 out of 5 stars A simple Range extender
OK, So I have a bit of a history trying to extend the range of my wireless network (based on a netgear router). I've tried netgear and belkin extenders with not much joy and an incredible amount of frustration.

In one final effort yesterday, I found this product and thought I might as well give it a try.

All I can say is

Wow...

1.0 out of 5 stars Not recommended
I have never reviewed on Amazon before but feel compelled to do so after a very bad experience with this.

When this works it is very good and setup is relatively straightforward.
Unfortunately it does not maintain a connection and requires regular manual resetting to re-establish the wi-fi coverage. This applies even when there is reasonable proximity with...

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit of a saga, 20 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Belkin Dual Band WLAN Range Extender 2x300 MBit/s (Accessory)
First the good news. Amazon's usual brilliant order and delivery. Setting up was a doddle - just have your web browser open on your computer before you plug in the Belkin, then the setup page appears instantly on plug-in, type in your wireless password and you're done. Now the less good news. Finding a reliable signal became a problem. House has solid block internal walls and I want to send the wifi to a PC on the first floor and to a Sky wifi box on the gound floor - all from a first floor BT Homehub 3. Used a laptop to test places for signal strength to place the Belkin but after the Belkin held signal for a couple of days then dropped it I decided to experiment with more precision. For a start the signal strength bars (5) on the laptop are far too coarse a measure, with each bar representing (presumably) 20% of the signal. Coincidentally, for the PC I had bought a wifi dongle (Trendnet 150 Mbps micro wireless N usb adapter, about 11 Amazon) which has a great % signal strength indicator as a utility. With this on the laptop I could test signal strength differences down to 1% change as I moved about. I attached the Belkin to a long (lawnmower) extension cord and placed the switchd on Belkin in different locations, then checked the laptop (e.g. alongside the Sky wifi box) for signal strength. Eventually found a compromise place for the Belkin that holds signal from the router without dropouts whilst giving good (89%) signals at both locations. Note - wifi is incredibly sensitive - just moving or raising router or Belkin a few inches can have a significant effect on signal strength at the laptop and avoiding dropout at the Belkin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Info from Belkin, 24 Oct 2012
This review is from: Belkin Dual Band WLAN Range Extender 2x300 MBit/s (Accessory)
I contacted Belkin re this device and was told not to buy this one but instead buy the UK model
Item model number: F9K1106uk ASIN: B007AEDK4M

As buying the `german` version may have an european plug plus `other differences`

I cannot vouch for any of this but was persuaded to buy the Amazon offering Item model number: F9K1106uk
ASIN: B007AEDK4M even though it ended up 10 dearer inc postage.

Just thought I would mention this.
