Good and Expensive

Pros: So easy to set up I had to do it again to be sure it was that easy!
Range is great.
I bought 2 more they preformed so well. It turned out I did not plan for one place in the building but at this price it was worth adding a 3rd to the building.

Cons: None, they have preformed very well

Other Thoughts: I also bought one for home since the upstairs did not get great coverage, now the whole house is full strength.

Range descent for the price

Pros: I paid this product less than 50$, I think it's a good value for an apartement builded in longer with concrete wall. (40 feets Long by 20 feets of large)

Cons: I past from 3mbts to 6mbts in my room. My internet + wifi is 25mbts. The booster is between my room and the wifi 12 feets/12 feets...

Takes a long time for devices to connect. Really poor speed

Pros: Easy to setup, small enough to store

Cons: Takes a long time for my Phones to connect to it. Often I get authentication failure and Internet not available errors. If more than 3 devices are connected to it, I experience very high chance of older devices not getting connected to it.
The latency is huge. I get up to 500 ms latency which destroys the actual purpose I got this for: streaming. The bandwidth in my room is 1 Mbps right now. If I go near my main router and connect, it is 100 Mbps. Having high latency and poor bandwidth is a total deal breaker. Also I don't know if all extenders do this but this operates on the same channel as the original router which shows up in my wifi tester as causing interference.

Invasive, unprofessional tech support (also not for Macs, apparently)

Pros: None

Cons: Does not work with Macs.

Other Thoughts: An awful experience, one stained by malicious behavior, and if you have a Mac at home, don’t bother buying this device. Here’s what happened:

Based on reviews I anticipated setup to last 3 minutes. All initial attempts failed, and a call to customer support resulted in granting NetGear’s tech support remote access to take over my computer to diagnose the problem. After 45 minutes of searching through my hard drive, they told me the only solution was to enable a firewall option on my mac - not my native system firewall, but the firewall that Netgear can assist with implementing. To decline a firewall was to ensure failure of the device connecting with my router.

When I asked to explore how to make that happen, I was transferred to another representative who continued remotely accessing my laptop. He brought up a price list with the most inexpensive option being $149/year, telling me it would allow the extender to communicate with my router, and “get rid of any viruses”. I was a bit taken aback and replied that I wasn’t prepared to make that kind of expenditure at the moment. Here’s where things turned bad.

The tech terminated my phone call - hung up on me - yet continued to access my computer. So as I’m looking at my screen he’s continuing operations. What!!?? Thus begins this surreal cat-and-mouse game where I’m closing all windows possible, and he’s opening new ones. His last action was to open a browser window selling spy camera/security options for my computer… so what is THAT about?? Is that a final twist of the knife? Does NetGear have a policy of running people’s computers after they have terminated their phone calls? Or is that a final attempt to induce some kind of hard-sell paranoia in a client who is already experiencing technical troubles? Is that sanctioned by NetGear, or is it the behavior of some rogue, malicious salesperson?

Perhaps I’ll never know. But the entire experience reeked of unprofessional behavior at the least, and invasive opportunism at worst. Just a bad show.

Sorry NetGear, if this is your practice, I’m out. I’ll never buy your products, never subject myself to your tech support team, and hopefully I’ll never have an experience like this one again.

Please beware. And stay far away.

EX2700 N300

Pros: Easy setup, press wps on the extender, then you have 2 mins to run to your router/modem and press the wps button on that and you're set!

Cons: its slow but oh well does the job I guess
