1 out of 5 eggsA sad story

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

Pros: Looks cool
Setup pretty easy
Good signal

Cons: DNS just stopped working out of the blue after about 3 months. Full reset/reconfig made no difference. It's useless now, and I will have to RMA it. Makes me sad, I don't like it when very well understood and developed technology doesn't work.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Peter,

We understand and apologize for your frustrations. Please feel free to email us at netgearteam@netgear.com with any further feedback or if you need help with the RMA.

There is nothing we want more than to get your EX6200 working perfectly for you and once again apologize for the trouble with DNS.

Regards,

NETGEAR Team

5 out of 5 eggsExactly what I needed

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

Pros: It does exactly what I needed it to do. I watch TV on my computer using an HDHomeRun TV tuner. I have a large antenna in my living room and had a TV cable coming from it to my computer area. A housing inspector ordered me to get rid of the TV cable because he considered it a tripping danger.

What now? The HDHomeRun connects to any computer on my home network via a wired Ethernet. In order to comply with the inspector’s order, I needed to somehow convert it to a wireless device and move it to my living room, next to the antenna. I searched the web and eventually came to newegg.com for a suitable way to accomplish just that. They offered many solutions, but all most of them could do was extend the wireless network to less accessible places. Not what I needed.

Then I noticed this device. It has 5 Ethernet ports, so I have more than needed at this time, but who knows what I’ll need in the future. I was a bit worried because of all the negative reviews here. But it is from Netgear, the same company that made my router, and a company I trust. I ordered the device.

It arrived 3 days ago. To set it up, all I had to do is plug it in near my router, press the WPS button on the device, then the corresponding device on the router. That established a 2.4 GHz connection. Repeating the same process established a 5 GHz connection. As simple as that.

Then I moved the device to my living room, unhooked the TV cable, moved the HDHomeRun to the living room, hooked a shorter TV cable in, and bingo! Everything not only works, it actually works better. Because now I use a shorter TV cable, I get a clearer signal. And I got rid of the cable the inspector did not like. The inspector will be happy, and I am happy because my TV signal has improved.

Cons: None that I noticed. Of course, I have only had it for three days.

Other Thoughts: Very simple to setup in a manner of a few minutes. With WPS, I had no need to connect to anything, enter any password, nothing at all. Just set it up and it works.

I don’t use it to extend my wireless signal, I use to as a wireless bridge. And it works so well, I don’t even have to think about it.

1 out of 5 eggsFastlane = slowlane

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

Pros: Supposedly best in class

Cons: Faulty hardware and hard to connect with support. My "Fastlane" mode resulted in speeds lower than 20Mbps, but with Fastlane off the speeds were much higher so faulty hardware or feature is poorly implemented.

3 out of 5 eggsEasy to setup

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

Pros: Very easy to setup

Cons: Internet access via the 2.4GHz is random now and I have only had the unit for about 5 days. I can log into the extender via the 5GHz and it says that everything on both bands is working great however the led on the front of the unit and the lack of internet access tells me otherwise.

Other Thoughts: I'm returning it and upgrading.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Troy,

1 out of 5 eggsDon't RMA to Netgear

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

Pros: Worked fine for 3 months

Cons: Died after 3 months
Poor customer service

2 out of 5 eggsWorked fine - for 3 months

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

Pros: Fastlane is exactly what I wanted

Cons: short product life

Other Thoughts: I bought this extender because it does exactly what
I wanted to do, and for 3 months it worked fine. It's now dropping connections and apparently randomly restarting itself. When it works, it's great but when it doesn't, it's frustrating to deal with.

I spent two hours talking to customer service and we barely got it running but it's still flakey. Requested an RMA so we'll see how that works out.

Manufacturer Response:

Hey John,

Please feel free to email us with any further issues after you receive your RMA. Make sure that you include your serial number and the case numbers you've received from support.
Email: netgearteam@netgear.com

We can't apologize enough for the trouble you've run into with the EX6200.

3 out of 5 eggsOK Extender

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

Pros: It does extend the range to far corner of the house and the backyard without much speed degration. The ability to connect desktop PC or NAS to it would be great for people who need it.

Cons: The 5Ghz extension stopped working after a month. Everything looks fine except that there's very limited connectivity. Overall, I was never able to achieve anywhere near half of the advertised speed. Internet connection speed most of the time is down by 1/3 when using the extender. I'm uncertain whether it's a problem with it.

Other Thoughts: While the box is big, the design is very pleasing. I found that if the "amber" connection speed can be improved to "green" if I unplug and plug back the power supply, most of the time.

Manufacturer Response:

We want to get your EX6200 working properly again and are sorry to hear that your 5GHz band dropped after a month. We want to get it working as advertised and can't apologize enough for the trouble. Simply email us at netgearteam@netgear.com to get started-- include a copy and paste of your review and the serial number of your extender.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Regards,

NETGEAR Team

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!

Manufacturer Response:

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.
