My router is at the opposite side of the house, and on different level. I have a 3000 foot square home, so by the time the signal reached my upstairs of...see moreof the reviewer's review

Plugged it in and connected to my PC, as I needed a better connection and a wifi dongle was using a lot of CPU and was Slllooooww. Took a few minutes to configure and then no issues. Have a reasonably fast connection now. Recommend when you cant put your desktop near the router. 75 down and >10 up.see moreof the reviewer's review

This worked for the first week. Now devices are insanely slow or they don't connect at all. If we unplug the extender and plug it back in we get about another week use before it does it again. We have moved the extender to many places in the House. If it's too close it won't work but every where it ...see moreof the reviewer's review

The product installation is easy and it worked for a week. After that, everything went south. I have to constantly switch it off and on manually to get it work. It doesn't work 24/7. It get disconnected automatically from time to time and i have tried everything but all were in vain.see moreof the reviewer's review
