Its nice to have a piece of network kit that is easy to set up and just works. This is one such item. Netgear has clearly put a lot of effort into simplifying initial setup, to the point that if you have a WPS (Wireless Protected Setup) button on your existing router, you only need to press a couple of buttons to get it working.

So, what does it do? Actually, it can perform two different tasks, acting as either a Wireless Access Point or as a Wireless Extender. Both of these tasks give you WiFi connectivity where you haven't previously had it, but the method is slightly different.

Most routers nowadays have WiFi built in, but if you need WiFi coverage away from your main router (if the signal gets too weak to use in the remoter parts of your house or garden) you need another WiFi device. You can connect it to your router using ethernet cable, which gives faster results but involves cabling. This is "Access Point" mode. Or you can position the extender inside the coverage of your existing WiFi router so that it will relay the WiFI signal to devices that are further away. This doesn't involve any cabling, but it means two wireles "hops", from your computer to the extender and then from the extender to your internet router. This is Extender mode. I suspect mode people will want to use Extender mode because it is so much easier to install.

Setting the Extender up in Extender mode is really straightforward if your router has a WPS button. You need to connect it wirelessly to your existing router, which you do by plugging it in near your router pressing the on/off button, and when it has started up (it takes about 60 seconds) pressing the WPS buttons on both your Extender and your existing router.

This is a decent dual-band high-speed wireless extender that supports modern security principles. It has a single RJ45 port in addition to it's wireless function which can be used to create a wired connection to a device without wireless connectivity. The extender can be configured by a device plugged into this port if desired.

I installed one at a friends house and connected it to a Virgin Media super hub router. The automatic configuration button process didn't quite work and although the extender appeared to be configured, devices were unable to connect to the internet. I'm an IT professional so I didn't spend any more time using the automatic configuration and just I plugged a laptop to the RJ45 port and configured it manually. This might be a bit daunting for a novice but it is straightforward and Netgear provide step-by-step instructions. I see from previous reviews that some people have had this issue while others haven't so obviously its inconsistent in this regard. Marked down one star for this.

Once setup is done, you have two additional wireless networks which are the same name as your original wireless network with the suffix 2GEXT and 5GEXT respectively. Wireless access passwords for the additional wireless networks are the same as the original. I read a previous reviewer's report that the extender uses a different IP subnet for DHCP from your original router but I didn't have this issue. Its possible Netgear have patched the firmware since that review but I don't know for sure. I have not attempted to network between devices on the WIFI because the end user simply wanted additional internet browsing capability and not networking between devices.

I'm very experienced in IT, its been my job for 20 years but Its been quite a while since any network product has irritated me this much, I probably have to think back to the 90s to come anywhere close to being this frustrated.

For starters, WPS button does nothing except make the extender blink an LED repeatedly until it goes back to its previous state.. despite me pressing the WPS button on the netgear router sat next to it.. it simply won't have any of it.

OK.. so I go through the manual setup and the so-called Genie.

Before doing so, I added the extenders MAC to the ACL of the netgear router, I ensured I had available IP addresses in DHCP Scope.

I connect to one of the SSID's of the extender, enter the default user/pass and I get in. Change password, Choose Router SSID for 2.4ghz and 5ghz, changed admin password, set encryption to WPA2 and passphrases and it kicks me.. no problem, I expect that I have to reconnect.

I reconnect to the SSID of the extender (2.4ghz or 5ghz makes no difference)... open browser, go to mywifiext.net and login with new admin user/pass and I am in. Everything seems ok, resume the genie process step by step.. get to the end where it says disconnect and reconnect to the extender.. I do that then one of two things happens... depending on how its feeling.

1. My tablet, or laptop or phone's wifi manager says "Its taking a long time to connect" then eventually comes back with "Limited connectivity" or with "No internet connection" message. Then going back to mywifiext.net either works to the extender (but no internet access) or "Cannot find page".

Or

2. My tablet, laptop or phones wifi manager sits on busy until it comes back with a message that it cannot connect.
