I thought I was covered... boy was I wrong 05/20/2014
This review is from: Netis WF2416 Wireless N150 Pocket Size Traveler AP Router Repeater with Wall Plug
I thought I had my house (2100SF) adequately covered with my hoopty doo dual antennae Buffalo Router/wifi... granted I only had two bars in the bedrooms and maybe that is OK for my cell phone but I wanted to gamble a little on the cheap by adding extenders to see if I could hit 5 bars and pump up my download speeds. I bought two of these extenders on sale for $20 total including shipping... what a bargain. I got 5 bars everywhere in this house now and good solid WiFi performance on my computers. This is the second time I have bought Netis products, and I am very happy with their high performance products. They have the good design brains and the right engineering team.
These plug-in wall outlet units do get warm.
If you're using this device as an extender then of course enter the SSID for your mother router/AP in the Netis setup on 192.168.100.1 but name your "extended WiFi" something new/unique. I had problems trying to have the Buffalo router/WiFi and the Netis extender share the same SSID name... it just would not work. When I am moving around the house my cellphone automatically hands off to the strongest signal (once I entered the two passwords into my phone).
