Product Description

The Ultimate Network Extender

The WCB3000N is a high performance coax network adapter and wireless extender in one, designed to deliver exceptional network performance and reliability to wired and wireless connected devices throughout the entire home. Using a wired coax connection and offering dual simultaneous 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radios, the WCB3000N offers the best performance around for extending your home’s Wi-Fi network.

Everything You Need For Maximum Wireless And Wired Performance

  • Ethernet over Coax Adapter ECB2500C: connects router to any nearby coax outlet
  • WCB3000N Wireless Network Extender: connects to a coax outlet in a different room to extend ultra-fast wired network, and provides robust Wi-Fi performance
  • Two Gigabit Ethernet connections

What Makes The WCB3000N Wireless Network Extender The Best Choice for You?

The WCB3000N Wireless Network Extender brings superior wireless connectivity to even the most challenging areas of your home. It annihilates dead spots since it leverages the coaxial backbone already in place in your home. The WCB300N also comes with two Gigabit Ethernet ports to supply your Ethernet-enabled devices with an ultra-fast wired network. Automatically configure the WCB300N by using the extender's WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) feature to automatically clone the settings from your primary wireless network.

Why The WCB300N Kit Is Superior To Typical Repeaters

Wireless network repeaters connect to your router and devices simultaneously, which means 50% of your bandwidth is already used up before you even start using your applications. And, the farther away the repeater is from the router, the less bandwidth you actually get. Your signal indicator on the device does not does not show the actual throughput. The WCB3000N connects directly to your router using the coax cables already in your wall. Now you’re getting optimum throughput for your connected wireless devices, meaning your connections are faster, stronger, and ready to handle whatever you throw at it.

Quick & Easy Setup

The WCB3000N kit setup is as easy as plug and play. Use the Extender's WPS feature to automatically clone the settings from your primary wireless network.

I've tried a lot of different things to extend Fios wifi coverage in my home. Repeaters needed frequent resets. Bigger antennae help, but didn't get the job done for me.

This product is stupid simple on Fios: screw in the coax, plug in the power, wait a few seconds while it shakes hands with your home network, and you're done. It will appear as a separate wifi signal, but uses the same network and network password. One potential headache I could foresee is if your device stubbornly hangs onto the weaker wifi signal, so that you need to manually change wifi signals when you walk into a dead zone. I was able to avoid this by picking a coax outlet that is more centrally located than my present router location, so that it serves all areas of my home.

MAJOR BONUS: Dramatically better wifi speeds.

I have Fios service with a 75 mbs down/ 35 mbs up plan. On a hardwire connection, I consistently get faster speeds. However, using the router provided by Verizon (Actiontec MI424WR), I don't get anything close to the speeds that I pay for over wifi. After setting up this router, I tested my hardwire connection speed (Ookla speedtest - web version) and each of the wifi signals using an iPad Air with the Ookla speedtest app. Here are the results:

Hardwire connection to router: 84/39
Wifi over current Fios Router: 44/36
Actiontec network extender (this product): 76/38!!

One purchasing tip: If you're on Fios, you don't need the extra mocha bridge--just the extender. You can purchase the extender alone (model WCB3000N) on the Verizon web page for $75 plus shipping and tax (my total was $85).

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The Actiontec Dual-Band Network Extender and Ethernet Over Coax (MoCA) "kit" consists primarily of two products. The ECB2500C is an Ethernet over Coax adapter. The WCB300N is the wi-fi extender. It also acts as a type of "modem" to convert the input of your original network cabling back into two, local gigabit Ethernet ports. The kit also comes with quick-start instructions, two coaxial RF splitters, AC adapters and all of the coax jumpers you should need to set the device(s) up.

First off, this is an extremely complicated device. The average consumer would likely be seriously perplexed by understanding the basics of how the device works, let alone how best to set it up for optimum coverage. That's likely why the vast majority of these units are NOT sold directly to consumers, but are private-labeled for companies like Verizon, Qwest, Comcast, etc. for installation by professional installers as a value-added service. This is evidenced quite clearly by the ridiculous lack of documentation that comes with the kit and the inability to download almost any other information of practical use on the company's support website. The documentation (a one-sheet hookup diagram) shows you how to physically set up the network, but absolutely no information on configuring the device or how it works is given. This is especially annoying to those of us who are concerned about issues like network security, quality of service monitoring or customizing the system to best work in a particular situation. There is a special Android/Apple app that can be downloaded, but besides being incredibly buggy (in particular, the "settings" button does not work) it really isn't that useful. It either shows you that the device is working or it doesn't work at all. Not very helpful.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The first thing I noticed was the quality look and construction. Very nice. Everything was included for my needs (except the house wiring of course).

It took me about 15 minutes before it was up and running. When my Windows 8 laptop recognized the device and asked for the password, I pressed the WPS button on the WCB300N and was connected immediately. No entering of passwords required. WiFi speed was not showing to be quite as fast as when connecting to my TL-WDR3600 wireless router but hardly noticeable. I found the range to be about the same.

My installation did not require use of the included splitters so no comment there. Nice of them to include them though as well as the two Ethernet cables.
The quick start instructions leave a little to be desired. If you want to make changes to the configuration (password, SSID, encryption) the default IP address for the ECB2500 is 192.168.99.254, password admin. You will have to slide the switch to "config" but that is all explained in a more detailed manual available online at Actiontec's website.

My only gripe, and it is a small one. I like panel lights that change color indicating Ethernet network connection speed (i.e. yellow for 10/100, green for 1000). Not all switches have that feature and I find it handy. NOT a deal breaker.

BONUS:
The WCB300N will work independently as a WiFi extender using one of the Ethernet cable ports instead of the COAX. Kind of an expensive way to go if you already have CAT 5e/6 available but it's good to know it works just fine.

I am pleased with the WCB3000NK01 kit and find it is a very good option for those with COAX already installed. I would recommend for that purpose.
