This is a great piece of kit - but only if it is set up correctly.
Most people get a dual band router plug it in and never change the settings, they then get the extender plug that in, link it as per the simple instructions and away they go.
Any issues, problems with the original router are then just transmitted for a greater distance which then makes them think its the extenders fault - I bet 9 times out of 10 it isn't.
For those of you with problems connecting or dropping connections may I suggest the following?
The inherent problem with the new dual band technology is that not all our gadgets like it or can use it, such as older iPads, iPhones etc.
The fix is really easy and only takes a few minutes and can I suggest you give it a try?
Firstly go into your router settings and change the name of the faster channel only - I simply added a 5 to the end of the current name and turn of the auto switch option.
Then turn on your iPad, or whatever, and do a wireless search where you will find the original, which you will still be connected to, and also the new one with the new name. Connect to this new one, you will need your password, and your device will then see both the new channels and will automatically switch between the two as it feels necessary.
Older kit will only see the slower band and will be happy now because the router will not be trying to make it switch to the faster one so no more dropped connections.
Do this on all your devices and I think you will find them all a lot happier and it also gives you the choice of which band you want to connect to, the slower for better distance and the faster for speed but less distance.

Style Name: 600Mbps Dual Band - Black Verified Purchase
This is a great product. As I recently installed a BT Hub 4 I needed a router that could handle the dual bandwidth of the router. Many similar products involved more set up time. This took about 2 minutes and was so easy. I have 2 different 1 foot "external thickness" walls between the router and the main bedroom and lounge. Signal in the bedroom was usually non-existent, and was weak to medium in the lounge. Now I have a full strength signal in the bedroom and better signal strength through out the whole house.

This device does extend the wifi range of your main router but what is much less clear from the promotional blurb is that it can also dramatically reduce download speed at the same time. My main BT Home Hub 5 provides >55mbps whereas accessing the same router via the BT Extender reduces this to between 10-14 mbps. The annoying thing is that all our wifi devices pick up the Extender's slower speed signal in preference to the faster signal, regardless of where I am in the house. BT does acknowledge this issue somewhere in the depths of its online help pages - it's just an inherent drawback with the technology. BT also provides a downloadable program which enables you to set up the Extender with a separate SSID. So now we have the minor inconvenience of two wireless networks in the house. It is necessary to login separately to each one. Yes, this is a "first world problem" but who would willingly and knowingly sacrifice a big chunk of the download speed they pay handsomely for? So it does work in that it reaches parts that a main router might not - just don't necessarily expect to get the same download speed normally delivered by that same router. My gripe is not that the technology clearly has limitations, it's that the marketing people appear to have chosen not to communicate this to people. My decision to purchase this particular bit of kit might have been different had I been in possession of all the relevant facts.

Style Name: 600Mbps Dual Band - Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
WiFi Extenders are NOT a cure for bad signals and you need to use them with a little care.
Placement is key. They only amplify the signal they receive so if you place them too far away from the main router all you are doing to amplifying a poor signal.
This is why you need to take a little time to find a spot where the signal starts to fall off and put the Extender there.

I put mine where the connection is down from 150mbps to around 50mbps so in the garden I still get a true 50mbps not the 11 or less I used to get. Don't be confused by the extender telling you a connection speed. This is what you are connected to the extender at, the real speed is what the extender has connected to the router at.

Happily the BT extender has lights on the front to help you do this and make it simple for those who aren't able to use the old methods. Seems pretty accurate too. Feels well made.

Connection via WPS is easy taking a few moments and the extender uses the same name as you existing router and becomes seemless into your network. Happy days.

It does have issues though.......

Firstly the lights indicated the 2.4ghz strength not the 5ghz network strength so if you want extended 5ghz coverage particularly you'll need to place it closer than the lights tell you. The book doesn't tell you this.

Secondly the auto setup doesn't name itself properly. My network has 1 name for the 2.4 and 1 for the 5ghz. The auto setup created a new 5ghz named the same as the 2.4ghz not what I originally called it. So I had 3 network not 2. Not ideal.

Thirdly accessing the extender after setup requires you know the IP address the router has given the extender and put that into your browser not the original 192.168.1.1 as told in the instructions.
