  • OK (ish!)

    Bought one to extend the range in my daughter's old stone farm house when we come to stay. It was easy to set up and when it is in the 'mood' it works really well. Unfortunately though, it suffers with a lot of 'drop outs' which require the unit to be turned off and on again to restore the connection. Sometimes it goes into set-up mode although this can be by-passed by turning off and on again! I have tried it in different locations, but all to no avail. The connection speed and signal strength to the unit is good and the signal strength received from the main router is good. A bit disappointing really, particularly as it is prone to dropping the connection during the course of a surfing session, although I must say its never been quite bad enough to justify returning the unit.

  • Works well in an area of low signal strength. Set up easy, but I found that during this process the booster needed to be within about 10 feet of the laptop and the router; after that the range could be extended as required.

  • This WiFi range booster is incredible. The set up was easy. I plugged the unit in to the mains very near my Virgin Broadband Wi Fi router and pressed the units WPS button once then pressed the one on the router and 15 seconds later I got WiFi connection with my laptop. It had added _EXT to the SSID (network name). I took it to a location where I normally get 1 or 2 bars and constantly slow connection and it boosted to 5 bars with an Excellent report from my win 7 systray. When you get one do as I have done and you will be up and running in less time than it took to get the unit out of its packaging.

  • Unlike other users I found the instructions to be ok and had no problems setting up the device. However the range of the booster hardly covers 1 room. Would spend extra to get one with an aerial

  • Quick and easy to set up - it took longer to get it out of the packaging that to set it up. We now have access to the internet for the whole house. Set up using the WPS button on my existing Netgear router.

  • This is a brilliant device, almost literally plug and play. It sits nice and flush against the power socket and is very unobtrusive. Contrary to some other comments here, I found the setup to be a doddle. Following the the clear and concise, step by step instructions in the manual I got the range extender to talk to my router first time via WPS. It has been successfully identified and connected to by two Android tablets, two Android phones and a Windows 8 laptop with no difficulties whatsoever and now provides excellent WiFi coverage in areas of our house that were previously less than ideal.

  • Does the job, required a bit of juggling to get it logged on to my router, allows me to use brodband at twice the distance.
