Amped Wireless SR10000 High Power Wireless-N 600mW Range Extender and Smart Repeater
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Works out of the box
Decent price
Quick Setup
Amazing performance
Current firmware out of the box
Runs cool and silently
Vertical or horizontal orientation options
Included performance app for smartphones (simple, but free/effective)
Discreet design (small and invisibly black without sleep-disrupting LED levels)

Cons: Long Reboots
Not multi-band (this model, anyway)
Flimsy feel (no egg deduction)

Other Thoughts: After throwing my THIRD NetGear wireless repeater in the scrap bin, I took a chance on the Amped brand, with little prior knowledge of them. I've also all but given up on chasing the dream of extending 5 Ghz Wi-Fi, but with one or two devices in the house out of 12 wireless gizmos, I figured I could let that go and run with a 2/4 only repeater. So, this little thing is small, light, a bit "cheap feeling", but after going through their setup wizard (save yourself the grief and set up these things with a network CABLE), I was up and running and outshouting my neighbors in less than 15 minutes! I'm NEVER going to trust a wireless repeater that is A) From NetGear (sorry guys, I've tried!) or B) Doesn't have real, external antennas. I've taken apart all my prior failed repeaters, and the crummy internal radios are clearly inferior to a real "rubber duckie". And this one has TWO. I've been sunning this for over a week, with more Wi-Fi bars in the struggling areas of my property than I have ever seen using other brands. I didn't use it, but the response to Amped's tech support seems favorable based on other reviews. Although fairly brainless to set up, I can see room in some of the advance options where you might need to watch what your clicking, or even consult Amped support for some fancier configurations. (Determining to keep DHCP on by default or not was one of those areas that gave me pause). As another reviewer best put it "finally something with overkill!"

A final word to the wise - take the time to learn which wireless channels you can REALLY use in your country, get a good survey of your competing neighbor signals, and let this device do the rest. I'm really pleasantly surprised and satisfied with my purchase.

  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Totally reliable, simple, small - actually reads everything I throw at it! I go through these like water, and this model keeps being the reliable one in my bag.

Cons: No read/write activity LED... that's about it, but for the money, can't fault this too much.

NETGEAR WN2500RP-100NAS N600 with 4 Port Universal Dual Band Wi-Fi Range Extender-Desktop Version
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

3 out of 5 eggs So far.... well, better than what it replaced from Netgear 09/08/2013

This review is from: NETGEAR WN2500RP-100NAS N600 with 4 Port Universal Dual Band Wi-Fi Range Extender-Desktop Version

Pros: It's not its predecessor. The WN2000RPT should all ahve been sent to the sun. Seems to configure easily, its wizard is far faster than the model it replaced, and it taked the 5 Ghz band nicely seriously. So far.

Cons: Nothing bad so far. Just has that overall, flimsy, "I'm here, but don't count on me forever" feeling. I wish I knew why. I don't think this product has anything to do with the people who design or produce their higher-end router products. (much less things like their metal ethernet switches!) Even if this turns out to be a fine, workable wireless extender, why does it had to feel so, SO cheap? And why can't Netgear decide which of their 7 designs they are going for?

Other Thoughts: I think its hilarious and sad that both online and brick and mortar stores (well, that one blue-polo shirt store that is left) still sell the WN2000RPT model. I mean, WHY? It's the nework equivalent of selling the Xbox 1. (by which I mean the first, first one....) Why oh why?
