1 out of 5 eggsOnly Headaches

This review is from: NETGEAR WN3000RP-100NAS N300 Wall-plug Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender-2 External Antennas

Pros: None

Cons: Will not work. Has to be the worst networking device I have ever seen.

Other Thoughts: Ended up with this as a cast off from someone else who was tired of trying to get it to work.

Reset and configured it for use with my network. Only got "no internet access" message. Could ping it from my router, could also see it from my other devices, and could see devices connected to it, but could never get anything connected to it to access the internet.

Tried the wps button method aka "Just press the button and works just like magic!" and same result - "No Internet access"

Used a Diamond WR300N and in less than 60 seconds was up and running.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's a wart and it works well

This review is from: NETGEAR WN3000RP-100NAS N300 Wall-plug Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender-2 External Antennas

Pros: In use for over six months straight without issue - no reboots.
Simple setup, reliable connections, and speed.
It may be a wall wart, but it works very well. We needed to extend our 2.4GHz band to the upstairs of the house. The primary connections are with our smart phones. But even when connecting our laptops, the speed is more than reasonable for web browsing and basic computing needs.

Cons: None, really

5 out of 5 eggsHotspot Bridge use!

This review is from: NETGEAR WN3000RP-100NAS N300 Wall-plug Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender-2 External Antennas

Pros: Ease of setup

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: Used to bridge a hotspot to a Linksys E2500 (also purchased here a while back) to get the range needed and eliminate the 5 device issue with the MIFI. Works GREAT for this application!
Many inquires have been online and this fills the need.

1 out of 5 eggsSuddenly Died.

This review is from: NETGEAR WN3000RP-100NAS N300 Wall-plug Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender-2 External Antennas

Pros: Easy to use, plug in, press button, connect.

Cons: It would constantly drop the connection every hour or 30 mins sometimes less. I was in the process of figuring it out when it suddenly died, plug into wall, no lights just a weird sound coming from it. Buy a different product. I hope I can get some help with this but until then... Junk

2 out of 5 eggsFollow-up to my 9/30 Review - raised to 2 stars

This review is from: NETGEAR WN3000RP-100NAS N300 Wall-plug Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender-2 External Antennas

Pros: Signal okay; compactness

Cons: After several weeks (literally) and a persistent Level 2 support guy from Netgear, the WINRP3000 is indeed running successfully. But not without issue.

I have this paired with a 3-year-old Netgear Router. Almost immediately during the support process, I was informed that this device had reached the end of its support life.

The real problem I had was that I have opted to use an Access Control List for security - thus freeing myself from having to learn a different means of connecting every different wireless device I have via SSID/WEP Key entry. Some of them are amazingly unfriendly.

The base wireless router unit gave me no trouble... it was only when attempting to add on this wireless extender that problems ensued.

Here's the problem:
Whenever using this with an Access Control List, I had to do these steps:
1. Disable the ACL controls (i.e., remove all security) on both the base router and the extender.
2. Add the MAC Address for the device to be added onto the Extender.
3. Add the MAC Address for the device to be added onto the base router.
4. Check the attached devices list on the Extender and obtain the Virtual MAC Address.
5. Add the Virtual MAC Address for the device to be added onto the Extender.
6. Add the Virtual MAC Address for the device to be added onto the base router.
7. Enable the Extender's ACL security.
8. Reboot the Extender to make sure it 'takes' the new device.
9. Verify that the new device works on the extender.
10. Enable the ACL security on the base router.
11. Verify that the new device still has web access.

Note that this now means 2 ACL slots per device are required for devices on the extender - not one, as I experienced with the original router. This became a problem when I RAN OUT of slots on the original router - I think 29 was good; 30 devices was bad. There's no way to expand that number and... yes, the 3-yr-old product is no longer being supported by Netgear, so there's no chance of them bumping up the slot count. Maybe 2 dozen-odd devices was unthinkable 3 years ago, but certainly not these days.

SO: Did the WN3000RP Extender work? Yeah, after a fashion.
Am I happy with it? It was a royal pain to get installed and to put into service.

Is this a problem for users who don't rely on Access Control List security? I have no idea... so your mileage may vary.
Do newer wireless routers have more ACL slots available? I have no idea.

But for sure, I am rating this down due to poor support for ACL security considerations, very difficult (and undocumented) installation procedures for ACL use, and for poor interoperability with their own sibling product.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsNetgear WI-FI extender

This review is from: NETGEAR WN3000RP-100NAS N300 Wall-plug Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender-2 External Antennas

Pros: Easy set-up (comes up when you click on the extender and is menu driven)
Small anc compact (plugs into an outlet)

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I was a little concerned since the unit I bought was refurbished, but it was fine and works great. I get a full signal throughout the house where as before I couldn't get 1 bar in the liiving area. So far no problems after a couple days of use..

1 out of 5 eggsWill be returning

This review is from: NETGEAR WN3000RP-100NAS N300 Wall-plug Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender-2 External Antennas

Pros: Signal appeared to be okay...

Cons: Utterly unable to contact. Spent time with product support via chat. Was attempting to connect through existing Netgear router (2-3 years old, I believe).

My network does not use WEP/WPA security - running access control list only. Something involving that just failed to work at all... either it works with no security on whatsoever (obviously not gonna do that!) or nothing works with the ACL enabled. Instructions far too simplistic to go to any reasonable depth of troubleshooting. Firmware updates impossible unless/until the installation is successfully completed.

Other Thoughts: I do wish that tech companies (everybody - not just Netgear) would treat the public with a little respect given that quite a number of us can handle the details that are sometimes needed to make these things work. But since that wasn't provided... it will be returned.

Rating based on inability to work with companion product of the same brand... which you think would be almost automatic.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Alan,

5 out of 5 eggsLove It, Just What I Was Looking For!

This review is from: NETGEAR WN3000RP-100NAS N300 Wall-plug Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender-2 External Antennas

Pros: Set up took 5 or 10 minutes, the newest Xfinity modem/wifi built in one set up with no problem. My wifi didn't work at all in my back yard where I have a deck at the rear of my yard with a 12x28 pool and not as strong downstairs.
Now, with this Wifi Ext 3000RP I have wifi in my back yard and on my deck, even the furthest part of, yard with all bars.
I have my wife Ipad, iphone 4S and my iphone 5 and my daughters ipod or my laptop working with wifi with no problem.
I have it set to Security Options as WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK. Just what I was looking for!

Cons: None Yet!!

Pros: Worked fine for 6 months

Cons: Suddenly Stopped working for my iPad and 2 iphones. Firmware update did not help

Other Thoughts: No idea why but suddenly stopped working for my iPad 2 and iPad 3 and iphones 4 and 4s, could not make it work, they connect but no internet access. What should I do with it? Although Desktop PC works fine with it. Looking for another extender.
