NETGEAR EX7000 AC1900 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Range Extender
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Netgear Reliable 07/08/2015

This review is from: NETGEAR EX7000 AC1900 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Range Extender

Pros: The EX7000 is both an extremely reliable and incredibly fast AC extender. It serves equally as well as an access point. It has absolutely amazing WiFi signal. Intuitive and responsive Netgear typical web interface. Elegant and modern appearance. Includes vertical stand. Media and print sharing are available through a single USB 3 port. Five gigabit Ethernet ports. Has a physical power button. Handles all of my house’s pre-router traffic without the slightest hiccup.

Cons: Large footprint when laid flat, a bit larger than most modern WiFi devices I’ve used. Antennas don’t have enough room to all be positioned vertically when in upright stand unless you angle them outwards. Generic 4 port USB2 hub wasn’t useable to extend single USB port. Fastlane is only available in extender mode, and is opposite the band used by the originating router.

Other Thoughts: This extender’s 700mW signal is impressively strong; I actually removed the source AP and converted this to my main AP. It worked really well as an extender, but its superior signal made the other AP redundant. Sharing through the USB 3 port was simplest over the ‘windows network’, but you can also use ports 80 and 21. Printer sharing was easy to setup using Netgear’s ReadyShare Windows application. Even my antiquated test printer was immediately picked up and available. You can download the Netgear Genie app to print from your Android or IOS devices. Netgear also offers a WiFi Analytics App that you can use to see just how amazing is this extender’s signal.

TP-LINK TL-WDR4300 Dual Band Wireless N750 Router, Gigabit, 2.4GHz 300Mbps+5GHz 450Mbps, 2 USB port, IP QoS, Wireless On/Off Switch
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This is a full featured dual-band router with a powerful Wi-Fi signal. It offers much more than a simple router: FTP access, File sharing, media serving, and USB printer sharing via the two available USB ports. Has a very responsive and full-featured web interface. Latest firmware upgrade was hassle-free. Gigabit Ethernet. Physical Power and WiFi toggles. Can be used as a router or as an access point using stock firmware. It flawlessly served mp3 and mp4 files to a PS3 with an attached 1TB external hard disk.

Cons: Does not offer AC speeds, however it doesn’t come at AC price. Can’t login over SSH – port is shown as open, but connections won’t establish. Not surprising; you’ll apparently have to use a different firmware for SSH access. USB media wasn’t readable when I tried to expand the USB ports with a hub.

Other Thoughts: This router is surprisingly amazing. Yes, it’s a responsive dual-band router, but its functionality is exponentially higher because of the USB ports. It allows you to share files off an USB hard/thumb drive, but won’t completely replace your media center as it doesn’t output a video stream.
Along with file sharing you can hook up a printer to one of the USB ports. It does support a large number of printers, however, mine was not.
There is decent documentation available if you follow the links in the quick start guide.
While I cannot yet personally vouch for the support of other firmwares on this device, TP-Link says on the download page for this router that it should work with third party firmwares. They just won’t support it.
