This review is from: Linksys RE2000 N600 Dual Band Wireless Range Extender
Pros: Nothing - it wouldn't work as advertised no matter what I tried on three different occasions over a 2 week period.
Cons: It wouldn't relay a wireless feed from level 3 of a Tri-Level house down to level 2 - a linear distance of less than 30 feet! I tried everything including a manual reset.
Other Thoughts: I'm no novice - I bought my first computer, a Tandy Model 1, in 1978. I've assembled at least 20 PC computers - never bought an assembled PC. I spent most of 3 days trying to get this waste of money to work. I wanted a temporary internet connection in my living room while we are remodelling our family room. We moved our 3 business computers, our Linksys Router and Linksys Switch upstairs to a spare bedroom while the remodelling occurs. Was trying to get internet to my wife's Facebook Computer which worked great when I had the router in the family room. We don't do F/B on our business computers as a cautionary measure to prevent loss or damage of valuable business data.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: KeyTronic E03601D1 Beige 104 Normal Keys 5-pin DIN/AT-style Standard Keyboard
Pros: Nice feel
Other Thoughts: This is an OLD STYLE keyboard to fit a 386-40 Mhz computer board. I needed to set up an old style computer to recover software I wrote years ago.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WA850RE 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender. Wi-Fi Booster
Pros: Less expensive than Linksys
Cons: We operate a business from our tri-level concrete block home and have been "computerized" since 1978. While I can't offer any "Pros" for this Wireless Range Extender, I'll share the major problem I incurred. We used Cisco and Linksys for our network, setting our Router to the highest protection mode. Recently, we had to temporarily move our "home office" from the family room downstairs to a spare bedroom upstairs to allow us to do some remodelling. I spent 4 hours trying to set the TP-Link Range Extender to connect to our Linksys Router running in protected wireless mode so we could have internet access for our wireless "Facebook" computer located in the living room on the mid-level of our tri-level home. I was able to get it to work by turning off all our Router's Wireless Protection, but that was unacceptable as it opened up our entire network to intrusion from the wireless systems operating by 4 of our neighbors. This would have allowed four of our neighbors with wireless systems to access everything on our various computers (including sensitive personal and business data) - - an unacceptable situation. I shipped the TP-Link Range Extender back to NewEgg and ordered a Linksys Wireless Range Extender for a few bucks more than the TP-Link.
Other Thoughts: There's probably nothing wrong with the TP-Link equipment when its in a system with a TP-Link Router, but beware if you have a Linksys brand Router.READ FULL REVIEW
