Great Basic Extender 05/01/2014
This review is from: Linksys RE2000 N600 Dual Band Wireless Range Extender
-Beautiful Aesthetical Appearance (Sleek, not too Large, nice LED Tint, Ethernet ports at the bottom)
- Functional AC Connector (Option to plug straight into wall or use an adapter to extend it off from the socket via power cord)
-Dual Ethernet Ports (Version 2 Only)
-Decent Transfer Rates & Range
I use this on a Tech bench in my basement (router is on ground floor) and having 2 ethernet points in version 2 of this is very useful. I can have my main tech bench PC online always and then having a PC im building/repairing hooked up for driver/update downloading with this and it is very efficient.
-Setup Requires use of their software to setup (Other extender brands simple have you to hook up the ethernet to your pc and just open an internet browser window to start configuration, however with this you NEED to put in the CD and run the setup wizard.
Since it is only N600 (300 mbps per band) the speed is only decent, it's almost the lowest grade and the range is going to be only decent as well. I have a smaller home so it isn't an issue and it isn't too far from my router either. My router is AC1750 so I can only tap into a fraction of that speed with this however it is just good enough for techbench use for updates/driver downloads.
I would recommend this to the average-moderate consumer, I would not recommend this to people doing a lot of very large downloads as this product is not rated to perform at that standard. It will do it just not at the speed you would want it to perform. I would also state that if you have a larger home that you might want to look at N900 or an AC Device to use as an extender.
