Does the job, but it is having trouble maintaining a signal connection from a Virgin Media branded router which is only 4 meters away.
The catch, there are two brick walls in the way.

It sets up fine, and spot checks on the signal strength show that all seems OK.
The problem arises when streaming video, (BBC iPlayer), over the link, which results in a very choppy, and pixelated video stream, which sometimes pauses to buffer for a few seconds.
Perhaps I am expecting too much from the tech.

I bought this so I didn't have to drill holes in the walls and route cable, but it seems I'll have to.

If your application has no walls, or is just for web browsing, and casual use, then this may do the job for you.
Think again if you live in a typical house with walls, and want to stream video or do some gaming over the link.

Avoid like the plague unless you want to spend hours trying to fix something that has an inherent fault by design - go check the WN2000RPT threads on the forums, dropouts, repeated reboots required in the day, I had a V1 (and binned it back then) and now on V3 - same issues, just needed a cheapy to extend the signal whilst I set the rest of my network up. Wish I had not tried again, thought they might have ironed the fault by now, but same old tat. It's going back (despite hoping a fware update would sort it), its cheap for a reason you know!

I brought the router couple of days ago, to try and trial it, so I can see it works for our consoles. Also by today, I feel like giving it a very good review as its got a great signal, cause we got virgin media broadband and its have few issues with the signal and etc. But this router is why better then TP-Link as how many times I tried that router, the router signal keeps dropping and I had enough with it. But Netgear has better signal and has not dropped ever since I purchased it. Plus my iPhone connect with it and I'm using it now while typing this review in and I love it :). The Set up of the router is easy and I did not have to put in the CD to reg to my laptop and Broadband router. Also if you have an broadband enternet cable and you can put it in your consoles plus your non wireless devices to the router. Also to match both the router to your broadband provider router, you have to go on your computer, then type in the address shown in the guide on google or web browser and match it. Also the router will be named as your broadband router but with EXT at the end, with its security password and you can take it anywhere in your room with joy.

As an IT Engineer these WiFi Extenders are always my first choice for an easy and flexible extender to add Smart TVs, Freeview boxes or non WiFi enabled computers to a network.

With the 4-port Ethernet hub you can add "hard wired" devices and also add a "hot spot" to your WiFi network.

OK, there are fast WiFi extenders available but at the price an absolute bargain.

I bought this mainly because of the reviews and because I wanted to extend the wireless range of my Virgin Superhub (made by Netgear). It was easy to set up. I initially set it up using my Iphone and entering the details. I have since reset it and connected it to my Virgin media Superhub using the using the WPS button. I recommend reading the Instructions twice before powering up. It did take a few moves before I got it positioned to my liking but the signal is now strong in all the areas that I needed to boost it in. The best bit of advice I read ' Wireless Signals from a hub are like a fountain'. I got the best coverage (up and down) by positioning the unit on the first floor rather than the ground floor.

The only drawback I have seen is; You have to set up your wireless devices (if you move them around) to log on automatically to both the 'origonal Hub' and exteded Hub named 'origonal Hub_EXT'. For obvious reasons, the extender must be within wireless range of your origonal Hub. This means that on returning to your house/office your wireless device can log on to either depending on which 'zone' you enter into first. Because both 'zones' overlap, this leads to the wireless device not logging off the weaker and onto the stronger signal as you move zones. In my case it affects mainly Mobile Phones and the occasional laptop.

It is only a VERY MINOR drawback which requires a simple manual overide but one that you should be aware of. It may be there is a way of setting the devices up to counteract this, possibly someone cleverer than me knows how.

In summary, the product works very well. I have only experienced a drop of signal once and that was restored in less than 2 minutes by simply switching the unit off and on again. The Instructions are not the clearest, so reading them in conjunction with the reviews is invaluable.

I bought this item to replace my Belkin extender which continued to drop connection each day for a period of time. This unit drops the connection EVERY day and SEVERAL times a day despite all lights being green. I love the fact that the device has WPS button functionality for easily connecting devices and it's very easy setup out of the box. But, I will be looking for a replacement. I guess the old adage of "you get what you pay for" is true in this case. I wouldn't recommend it.
