Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,

We are sorry that you have issues with EW-7438RPn.

Please use some wireless diagnostic tools like InSSIDer version 3 to find out the best wireless channel for your main WiFi network. Use a different WiFi channel in your router to avoid the same channel of your neighbors wireless networks.

If you need any further assistance, please feel free to contact our tech support at (800)652-6776 or write an email to " support@edimax.us " directly.

Best regards,
Edimax Customer Service Team

1 out of 5 eggsWaste of Money

This review is from: Edimax EW-7438RPn V2 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender, Repeater, Wireless Bridge, Access Point, Wall Plug design, Smart LED Signal Indicator, Easy iQSetup by Smart Phone (No CD Required)

Pros: Easy installation

Cons: Extremely slow! While hanging out downstairs in our living room, (router upstairs in bedroom) from my router I was receiving 68% signal, with 30 mb down 10 up. I specifically purchased this "extender" for my Smart TV with Netflix, and Xbox one. My Xbox One had an update, took over 1 hour!!! Ruined my bowling night! Netflix barely played a movie, in horrible quality. I thought I was going crazy! Its placed in between the router and the "dead zone" like the instructions say. I ran a speed test, this piece of junk was barely hitting 5mb down 1-2 mb up. Are you kidding me>? you advertise 300mb LOL yea ok, I do IT work for a living, have set up 100's of networks in my days. This product is JUNK. Only getting 30% signal, when my router is already giving 68% LOL TRASH

Other Thoughts: TRASH

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,

We appreciate your feedback and would like to provide some assistance.

Please make sure the extender is not blocked by any furniture in your location.

You may use some wireless diagnostic tools like InSSIDer version 3 to find out the best wireless channel for your WiFi network. The wireless extender is used to extend the WiFi range and could not keep the same WiFi throughput. The extender receives the traffic and will broadcast the same traffic into the same wireless network. This will double the traffic and therefore decrease throughput. Trying using a different WiFi channel in your router to avoid using the same channel with your neighbors. Usually this can improve this extender throughput issue.

The 300mbps is the connection speed between wireless devices and the extender. It is not the real wireless throughput.

If you need any further assistance, please feel free to contact our tech support at (800)652-6776 or write an email to " support@edimax.us " directly.

Best regards,
Edimax Customer Service Team

2 out of 5 eggsunreliable connection

This review is from: Edimax EW-7438RPn V2 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender, Repeater, Wireless Bridge, Access Point, Wall Plug design, Smart LED Signal Indicator, Easy iQSetup by Smart Phone (No CD Required)

Pros: small, cheap, works well for my iphone

Cons: My windows 8 computer is barely capable of connecting to the network created by the extender. When it does connect, it is a "limited" connection, meaning it cannot get internet access.

Other Thoughts: not sure why there is such a difference between devices. my computer has no problem with other networks.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,

We are sorry that your computer gets a "limited" connection while connects to extender.

You may try the following to manage the wireless profiles,
1. If your Win8 has a touch screen, swipe in from the right edge of the screen of your Windows 8, tap Settings, and then tap Change PC settings.

If you're using a mouse, point to the upper-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down, click Settings, and then click Change PC settings.

2.Tap or click Network, tap or click Connections, tap or click Known WiFi networks. You will see your wireless profiles. One of them should be the profile for the extender. Tap or click on the extender network. Tap on click on Forget. This will forget the wireless extender network.

Search for wireless networks and re-connect to the extender. Enter the wireless security password which is used in your main WiFi network.

If the above does not help out, please feel free to contact our tech support at (800)652-6776 or write an email to " support@edimax.us " directly.

Best regards,
Edimax Customer Service Team

5 out of 5 eggsGood little Box

This review is from: Edimax EW-7438RPn V2 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender, Repeater, Wireless Bridge, Access Point, Wall Plug design, Smart LED Signal Indicator, Easy iQSetup by Smart Phone (No CD Required)

Pros: The unit does a great job of extending our WEP enabled house system into the new extension which had barely one bar of coverage before installing this unit. Despite 2 power outages since installation, the unit has recovered and re-synced with the main router each time without manual intervention.

Cons: The router in our house is supplied by Verizon and we have no control of its setup or WEP codes. I am very tech savvy but even I found it a challenge to get the main network talking to the extender reliably even after power on/off, but after we set it up and cycled the power on the main system a few times it seemed to synchronize and hasn't been an issue since.

Other Thoughts: This unit is great value for money and works well. We built an extension onto our house which is through the original metal door to the garage and beyond the original house external brick walls. The extender is 20ft inside the original building and we now get 5 bars in the extension. We are very pleased.

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not work

This review is from: Edimax EW-7438RPn V2 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender, Repeater, Wireless Bridge, Access Point, Wall Plug design, Smart LED Signal Indicator, Easy iQSetup by Smart Phone (No CD Required)

Pros: none as it never works

Cons: I follow instruction have it connected to the router. However, the signal keeps fluctuate between 1-4 bars no matter how far I'm from the extender. Worse, none of the device can access the internet even with full 4 bars. Browser keeps spinning. Should heed the warning from many recent buyers. Now, it cost me $$$ to send back for a refund.

Other Thoughts: I have used other devices from Edimax such as the AP 300M dual antenna, nano usb nic, switch, etc. Maybe bad luck and got a lemon one but that's still a bad quality control on Edimax.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,

We are sorry that you have issues with EW-7438RPn.

This could be something between the extender with your WiFi router. Some wireless routers do not allow the connection from a wireless extender. Therefore, we need to know more information for troubleshooting.

Please feel free to contact our tech support at (800)652-6776 or write an email to " support@edimax.us " directly.

Best regards,
