1 out of 5 eggshave to take back my comments!

This review is from: Netgear EX6200 AC1200 High Power 700mW Dual Band Wi-Fi Range Extender – Desktop with 5 Ports

Pros: This review is from: Netgear EX6200 AC1200 High Power 700mW Dual Band Wi-Fi Range Extender – Desktop with 5 Ports

Pros: dual band quality, does what it says

Cons: no cons as far as I can see

Other Thoughts: have owned this unit for 3 months and here's the situation. my roommate has 5 acres and has a house with a trailer on the land. all cable, internet, and etc, is located in the house. I live in the trailer which has nothing.

in comes the ex6200. the trailer is 161ft away from the house, with trees and power line in between. couldn't connect with cable modem from Comcast, so we bought the netgear c3700 cable modem to replace it. once the c700 modem was in place, it was on like neckbone!

the modem does 2.4ghz at the house and 5ghz to the trailer and the extender has no problem with it. we have two laptops, and two smartphones hooked wirelessly to the extender. the house has the same.

download speed is 25mbps and upload is 6mbps. with that we can surf the internet, watch netfix and youtube, and download huge files (I've downloaded 5gig file and the like).

I can watch tv via the internet from the cable that's paid at the house. so we decided not to get cable for the trailer and saved big time by not having to add another internet connection to the trailer.

like I said worked for us. would recommend.

Cons: now, after a year of ownership, I have to say that we are all but dead in the water! all of a sudden we have the hardest time getting on the internet. I think it's more of the modems fault, the c3700.

with speeds of only .034 mbs download and .02 mbs upload. and the crazy thing is nothing has changed in our setup!

go figure!

Other Thoughts: will never buy an all-in-one modem/router again. hope this helps someone before they find out the hard way like I did!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks perfectly

This review is from: Netgear EX6200 AC1200 High Power 700mW Dual Band Wi-Fi Range Extender – Desktop with 5 Ports

Pros: Easy setup, strong signal

Cons: Web interface could be better

Other Thoughts: We live in a very high congestion 2.4GHz area. In fact my neighbor's Uverse router is almost as strong as my own Asus router (not a fair comparison though since my router has more material to traverse). I'm using the extender in 5GHz Fastlane mode - my Asus router can't quite cover the house at 5GHz but with this extender I get full coverage and then some (several hundred feet up the street!).

The web interface is a bit odd though. I had to initially setup the extender in its normal mode (Internet surfer mode) and when I selected Fastlane, I was sent back to the original setup screen. No reason to have to do that since it already had my setup information. Otherwise everything seems to work perfectly. Using Fastlane, no slow down in speed is observable.

2 out of 5 eggsDissapointing, then died

This review is from: Netgear EX6200 AC1200 High Power 700mW Dual Band Wi-Fi Range Extender – Desktop with 5 Ports

Pros: Once set-up it did a good job of range extension.

Cons: difficult to set-up. Did not pair with my R7000 as advertised. It worked for a little over a year (the warranty) then failed. It does not even boot now.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsA very nice and flexible range extender

This review is from: Netgear EX6200 AC1200 High Power 700mW Dual Band Wi-Fi Range Extender – Desktop with 5 Ports

Pros: Slick looking extender with 5 very useful network ports, which are great when use in conjunction with a Wireless AC router. Because I set this up with a 5Ghz AC connection to my Wireless 5Ghz AC router I hardwired my Consoles and Media PC to it and networking and streaming movies from my home server were as quick as wired. I was very impressed with this extender's performance.

It was really easy to set up using the WPS option. Took all of two minutes to get them connected. My devices connected to it, and it thoughtfully copied the names of both my 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz signals from my router and simply added "EXT" to the end of their names, which impressed me.

I really thought the "ready share" option on this was pretty neat and a nice value add for an extender. I connected a 2TB external to this and can use it as a sort of mini-server. It's great for tossing some quick video files on the network, or just a place to put shared files within a house hold if they don't have a home server.

It's a very sleek extender, the included stand is appreciated, and while it doesn't look like it, both the stand and the extender have rubber feet to keep it from slipping.

Cons: It's one of the bigger Wireless extenders. It's a hair smaller than my router. It's also pretty expensive compared to other extenders available. However while it does back up that price and size with it's performance, it's something to take note of when considering this hardware.

The device itself, while attractive, does feel very light, and the plastic seems thin. It's not a major concern for me as this is one of those things you just set and forget, but again, another thing to take note.

Other Thoughts: Yes it is pricey for an extender, but after using it for a while, I feel it's an overall solid device if you plan on using it to it's full capability like I did. The included directions are clear and concise, it's easy to set up, it's easy to use features like "ready share" and the ethernet ports without having to install any software. In my opinion if I can get something to work by just plugging it in, it's a win in my book.

2 out of 5 eggsReview update

This review is from: Netgear EX6200 AC1200 High Power 700mW Dual Band Wi-Fi Range Extender – Desktop with 5 Ports

Pros: See previous review.

Cons: See previous review.

Other Thoughts: Please see my full review below - this is an update.

7-14 days after setting this unit up for testing, it lost power and refused to power on again. I sent an email to Netgear, and received no response after a week. I then sent another, and again no response. It has been almost a month with no reply.

Manufacturer Response:

4 out of 5 eggsGood Range, A few quirks

This review is from: Netgear EX6200 AC1200 High Power 700mW Dual Band Wi-Fi Range Extender – Desktop with 5 Ports

Pros: The device is aesthetically beautiful, and pairs wonderfully with the Netgear R7000. Excellent bandwidth, and range. As a bonus, you can convert it to a full blown router with DD-WRT, though I did not test this.

Cons: The EX6200 has a few quirks. First, when I reboot my router, I must also reboot the extender before it will connect again. This may be extremely tedious for some that plan to set it and forget it.

Other Thoughts: All In all, I love the EX6200. I was able to extend my wireless AC network from my home to my workshop about 100 feet away, without any noticable loss of speed.

In my tests, even at 100 feet away from the router, I was able to make full use of my 100mbit internet connection.

In my case, the EX6200 worked great, and did exactly what many other weaker extenders could not - give me full speed access to my internet connection from my workshop!

4 out of 5 eggsNetgear EX6200

This review is from: Netgear EX6200 AC1200 High Power 700mW Dual Band Wi-Fi Range Extender – Desktop with 5 Ports

Pros: It worked as intended. Got dual core processor and USB 3.0 port. Lower cost than other range extenders of similar specs.

Cons: When testing from equal distance in open space got 10% lower gain than my REA20 despite both range extenders having 5dbi antennas and 700mW high-power design. Each range extender was tested one at a time with the other one powered off when not in use to avoid additional interference.

Other Thoughts: Bought a few 15dbi antennas from Super Power Supply which took 3 weeks to arrive even after I paid for express delivery. Only saw 7% signal gain after switching out those antennas. Connected same antennas to my other range extender and saw 15% signal gain. Otherwise, this is not a bad product. Just simply not as strong as I had thought.

1 out of 5 eggsHardware works perfect software super glitchy

This review is from: Netgear EX6200 AC1200 High Power 700mW Dual Band Wi-Fi Range Extender – Desktop with 5 Ports

Pros: Had it hooked up within seconds of returning home with it. Extended my network right where I needed it. Was happily in my man cafe surfing the web, watched Netflix and the Jungle Prime. . Every thing working perfect. No issues.

Next morning, I messed up royally and installed merges genie on my iPhone. The second it installed. It wanted me to log on. Didn't have time righ then as I was helping my son with an important paper. Well it kept coming up then kicked us off the net. It wanted me to set up the two dual bam
Nod network d

I'd already set up the previous evening. Awhatha? It kept claiming my networks were not connected. Wanted to know which networks I wanted extended, would put up a list of networks none of which mine was on. So manually imputed my ssid. That started a never endeding cycle of the same.....

So we switched to my sons iPod. Internet working perfect. Same one I'd been kicked off and locked out of. The 2.4 I'd already extended. That net gear was claimmg wasn't connected. This went on to few days. I could log on w any device with exception to my phone. So I uninstalled net gear genie and rebooted. Ph was able to log right back in. For approximately one day. Then like a virus. Net gear is back with a vengeance. Now no one can log on. The virus I mean the genie has infected every devise in this house.

We still have wifi through our original router. But like always, not too strong.

Will be RMAing this pile of dung asap.

Cons: This thing's completely worthless. Netgrar genie is a virus. The odd part is our router is mergers current top of the line. Before that we had the previous top of line. The 700 whatever w 3 antennae. This new one is huge even more antennae and looks a bit like a sock ship.

Other Thoughts: Wish I had an extender that works. Burning up data as I type. Thanks net gear

5 out of 5 eggsDOES THE JOB

This review is from: Netgear EX6200 AC1200 High Power 700mW Dual Band Wi-Fi Range Extender – Desktop with 5 Ports

Pros: I have a TIVO Mini in my basement home office with my cable modem, router, computer and small TV. Upstairs in the family room are the TIVO DVR and big screen TV. I had another brand older range extender connected to the DVR. I was receiving an average of about 2 lost connections per hour from the upstairs extender connection plus sometimes jerky video-audio. Since installing Netgear and using Fastlane it has been great. NO lost connections ever and and the video is totally smooth. Love this device - problem solved. In addition the extender function is totally blasting Wi-Fi through out the upstairs.

Cons: No negative comments at all.

Other Thoughts: Easy to set up - just follow the on screen flow. Be certain to download firmware update as the first step.
