Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plug and play Been using this a couple of weeks and had no problems at all. Take it out of the box, plug it in and press the button on the range extender and the wps button on you router and wait a few seconds for the light to change. Choose the range extender as your wifi on you computer, phone ect and use your normal passcode. I used it to replace a 30ft cat 5 cable that I had to plug into my router and route through the house when I was working in my garage and needed internet. I've had no problems with the signal dropping out or the speeds slowing down. Recomended if you need a quick and easy fix to what can be an annoying problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Extends your WiFi quick and easy I purchased this for my parents who were suffering from terrible Wi-Fi signal for the entire downstairs. They are BT customers already with a BT hub, the item does state that you can use this on any ISP/equipment. The instructions are easy to follow and overall, I got the extender setup in less than 10 minutes. I used the WPS option to connect the two together which is available on most modern routers, the extender connected easily. Once you have the extender in place, you can move the 'antennas' (they look like ears) into position to help get the best signal. Connect to the new WiFi network (EXT-YOUR_NETWORK_NAME) and away you go, it was really easy and you'll get a much better WiFi signal in those hard to reach areas!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just What We Needed! This WiFi extender is incredibly easy to use and quick to set up. It has got our wireless connection to reach all parts of our house, with a constant, fast connection. It is noticably faster than our router alone when watching videos and downloading files. The reasonable price and easy installation makes it a must-have for those who's houses have weak WiFi and blind spots in portions of their house.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't do what it was purchased for We purchased this to extend our wi-fi out to the front of our property to help improve reception to a free standing cctv camera. It hasn't helped at all, despite it being just 3 feet away! And we had terrible problems getting it set up too!

While I live in an 'L' shaped bungalow, with my BT router at one end of the 'L', and my preferred/desired work location at the other, thus challenging 'line-of-sight rules', would this, or any, WiFi Extender make any difference?.
