5 out of 5 eggsDOES THE JOB

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.

4 out of 5 eggsExtender not WAP

Pros: Outstanding hardware with great range and sensitivity. Manufacturers GUI is excellent.

Cons: I bought this intending to set up a wireless access point. Initially I could not set it up as a WAP (to be fair, the manual says so although the advertising is less than clear) so I then bought an EX6100 (which is easy to set up as a WAP). Finally figured out I could flash it with dd-wrt -- now it works great as WAP. Hopefully Netgear will add this feature to their firmware.

Other Thoughts: Fortunately, I have a friend who is buying my slightly used EX6100.

1 out of 5 eggsVery Sad with preformance

Pros: I bought this router extender today. I have internet speed 325 Mbps Download and Upload 23Mbps. When I was testing 2.4Ghz at speed-test.net the max I was getting Download 18.25Mbps and Upload 19.75 Mbps. 5HGz speed test was showing download 89.45 Mbps and upload 20.98 Mbps. I am very disappointed of Netgear Router Extender Specially this model.

5 out of 5 eggsworked for us

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.

1 out of 5 eggsWorks when it works

Pros: Increased my home's wifi coverage, and boosts speed in hard to reach areas.

Cons: Extremely unreliable. I have had it set up for one evening and it has had to be power cycled and reset to default settings three times now. I'm definitely returning this as this is pretty much useless.

Manufacturer Response:

We are sorry that the EX6200 has been causing you frustrations and want to let you know that we are here to help. Before you return it please email us at newegg@netgear.com so that we can get this issue resolved.

If it worked please let us know for how long and also include any other information that can speed things up on our end.

Regards,

NETGEAR Team

4 out of 5 eggsUpdated review after ownership

Pros: Works as advertised, good coverage.

Cons: As mentioned previously, web browser interface is not intuitive, also had to tweak things in an Easter-egg hunt type of manner to get set up.

Other Thoughts: Have now owned this device for about a month, wanted to post an updated review. The device works as described. I set the device up with the same SSID as my base router and had it broadcast the SSID at the same time as the base router. For some reason this seemed to confuse my devices as they would drop sync with one or the other when passing through convergence zones trying to pick the stronger signal. My fix was to disable the SSID broadcast on this unit but I don't have the drops anymore. I'm also running this to connect both 2.4 and 5ghz devices, so I can't speak to the other modes it provides, but if I can ever phase out devices with one of the frequencies I'd be excited to be able to use one antenna to send and one to receive!

4 out of 5 eggsFew misconceptions

Pros: Dual band, actually works in dual band as opposed to other devices that advertise dual band but can only operate in one or the other. Easy set up for basic users.

Cons: Form factor is a little big for an extender, navigating the web browser configuration settings isn't intuitive.

Other Thoughts: My LINKSYS RE2000 died recently and I wanted to replace it with something that actually extended my network in both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands simultaneously as opposed to one or the other. The reviews this device got online were pretty good, and the additional features, though not needed today, seemed too good to pass up for $20 extra dollars. I saw in earlier reviews and from some basic reading online that this extender set up its own network, functioning more as an access point than an extender, all due to the fact it created its own SSID. Some further reading however revealed that the SSID of this device can match your base router, but utilizing it in the manner means that basic users will rely on the device to decide which access point to connect to. I'm testing out both methods and will update my review accordingly. Full disclosure, I purchased the device at a big box store because I had "credit" there, but I always feel it necessary to review products on Newegg whether purchased here or not to share my experiences, as Newegg customer reviews are crucial when it comes to making my tech purchasing decisions.

2 out of 5 eggsGood performance, not so good reliability

Pros: Fast, relatively easy to setup.

Cons: Unreliable, fairly pricey

Other Thoughts: I'm using this primarily as a wireless AC bridge, it's wifi extender properties are mostly just a bonus. My main problem with this unit is it's reliability. I need to power cycle it about once every 24 hours because for whatever reason, it will not connect to half the websites or even local resources I want to access. Steam will not connect, Origin will not connect, my outlook won't be able to connect to gmail. Several websites will fail to display, and I can't even access my home/media server. Pressing the switch off then back on will fix all these issues for about 24 hours and the cycle repeats. I routinely check for updated firmware, but have not found anything so far. The router it's linked to is a Netgear R6300 which has been a very solid performer.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsLove me some Netgear!

Pros: Looks cool. Says, “Dual band WiFi up to 1200Mbps”…

Cons: To begin with, I should mention that I was hoping to find a single device to solve all issues at once. Perhaps such a beast doth not exist…

…Unfortunately, I’m getting a slower connection with the extender. I’ll explain my setup:

I live in a largish, single story L-shaped ranch-style house. I have a Netgear R7000 connected to a Motorola 6141 cable modem located on the innermost center of one of the wings. Close to the outermost corner where the two wings diverge, is my media room. Owing to the shallow pitch of the roof, running cable through the attic is next to impossible. So, then, wireless becomes a reasonable alternative.

Prior to installing the Netgear EX6200, my media devices were connected to my network via a Cisco/Linksys WUMC710. The WUMC710, which appeared to be the best AC1200 wireless bridge at the time of purchase, gave me a connection of 877Mbps to my components; however, since it does not also function as a wireless extender/repeater I thought I’d give the EX6200 a shot.

With the EX6200, the best I get to my wired devices is 300Mbps, and this is with “FastLane” enabled. Furthermore, with this setup, the wireless connection to my laptop is also limited to 300Mbps, and connection speed to the R7000, independantly, is also diminished.

Other Thoughts: I own multiple Netgear products and am please with the quality, reliability, and service Netgear provides. I, however, am disapointed with this offering. I think that they fell into the same trap I did in trying to solve too many problems with one device.

Manufacturer Response:
