This review is from: LINKSYS RE6400 AC1200 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Range Extender
Pros: Easy setup, great range boost
Other Thoughts: I utilize many of these and some are so so and some are great and then some boost further than expected and this is one of those.
I have another antenna extender( one of these with antenna's ) and it's is only about 2/3 as effective as this one.
The purpose of these is to extend your range to area's you have weak or no signal and all of these do just that, this one just a little better, I was able to get to the back of my back yard at 130 feet through walls, bathrooms, fireplaces.
You do not keep full speed you keep capability and even at the back of my yard I was able to download a game at 3mbps and that's not to shabby.
One thing to remember is location, location,location , search for your sweet spot.
The range of your router directly effects the sweet spot .
This is the best wireless range extender I have reviewed.
Pros: Simple setup as with any powerline adapter I have used , nice speeds, not to big that it blocks other outlet(Yay) and I was surprised.
Brand has always been good.
Other Thoughts: I use many WIFI and powerline adapters in my home and business and as always if you are where you have a hard time getting WIFI it's time to either Hard wire or go to power line so I Hooked it up in office where my old adapter has been and was surprised at how much faster that system worked and was able to download and search files on the main server, my old one worked well for the time but this is like a supercharger. NOTE: can not get stable WIFI in there as there is too much interference from systems and other waves.
I hit 65 mbps transfer speeds and 59 dl which is really good for being 2000 feet away and on a different breaker and to give an idea of my electrical use my bill is 12-$1500 a month with many motors causing interference.
I would like to mention that the closer you are to your source these speed up and if on same circuit they speed up even more.
You can never go wrong with a powerline adapter, they just work.
Pros: As shown and comes in qa nice case with 4 additional lenses, my wife can wear them with her glasses on for boating, excellent customer service as always( read "other"comments), quality is good and then lenses are not hazy or wavy.
Other Thoughts: I checked originally and the tracking number would not say anything so I didn't worry about it and went on vacation and came back and another week I finally checked for info on them and it showed they were delivered and they were not ( New mail person and have been missing one thing a month). Anyhow, I contacted through E-Mail and told them what happened assuming I would just never get the item because I had not contacted them sooner and if it were me it would have looked like a scam but BEHOLD I get an email stating they had been delivered and went and checked and they were there... NOW THAT IS CUSTOMER SERVICE ABOVE AND BEYOND!
I am now going to contact the postmaster because nobody should have to pay for their loss or theft as often as I have stuff go missing from a locked box.
