Signal coverage throughout the house is good.
Craig Dickson
The quick start guide is very straight forward, and by following the directions I was able to get this up and running in less than 15 minutes.

I tried several times on my own to configure the unit and then broke down and called their tech support.

It took me about 5 minutes to set this one up. Read below and you should be able to do it too. Don't install anything from the CD onto your computer, all you need is a web browser to log into this device and do everything.

Installation (5/5 stars):

First, connect the D-Link directly to any computer via the cable provided. (This cable might look and plug the same, but it's different from the others you most likely use for networking)

Step 1) Set your IP address to 192.168.0.### (where ### is any number from 10 to 240 EXCEPT 30, 30 is used by this D-Link). Then set the "Subnet mask" to exactly: 255.255.255.0 Leave "Default gateway" and "preferred DNS server" fields blank.

If you know how to do step '1' above then the rest is pretty easy. Follow the instructions in the quick guide (DWL-G710_QIG_100.pdf file located in the "docs" folder on the CD provided)

If you don't know how to do the setup '1' above, then do the following. Open the manual file ("DWL-G710_manual_100.pdf" located in the "docs" folder) it actually provides easy instructions BUT don't read it all or you'll get confused. You just need 3 pages from that manual. Go directly to page 28 to the section called: "Assigning a Static IP Address in Windows XP/2000" and read from the part where it says "Double click on control Panel" and do everything until page 30 where you see IP address fields, then just read my step '1' above to fill these fields.

Step 2) Close that manual file, and open the Quick Guide file from the CD and follow the easy diagrams/instructions. I think manual and quick guide were written by different people because quick guide is very straightforward and easy to follow where as manual is badly structured and confusing.

I bought the Extender for exactly it's purpose and it works brilliantly.

I have a full brick house and my Netgear WRG614 Wireless Router got me as far a one foot inside the kitchen and then dropped to a signal of about 14%. We wanted to work at the kitchen table and alass my internet connection kepted dropping out. Unfortunately the WRG614 has a fixed anneta which meant that I could add a bigger one and Netgear couldn't provide another solution other than an Access Point which needed a cable connected from the Router to the Access Point. Not much of a 'wireless' solution.

My only advice is that if you are not connecting to a D-link router make sure that you configure the Extender appropriately to your existing network.

For example the Extender comes with an IP Address of 192.168.0.30, which means that to talk to it (or at least to initially configure it) you need to configure your computer to something in the same range (as mentioned by other reviewers) eg 192.168.0.10. Plug in the ethernet cable supplied to the Extender and then follow the basic instructions (including doing a 'site survey' that will pick up your existing wireless networks).

The trick I found here was this. My Netgear Router was running with an IP Address of 192.168.1.1 this meant that I had to change the Extender IP address to be something like 192.168.1.30 so that I could talk to the extender via the router.

I unplugged the ethernet cable and wandered down in to the kitchen and the signal boost was brilliant. The laptop now had a signal of 94% up from 14%. The only problem was that I couldn't connect to the Internet. It wasn't allocating an IP address.

I successfully configured this product with my Netgear WGR-614v5 router and the help of Uri Teitler and E. Isaackov's reviews. I agree that the documentation is lacking. I believe that D-link made things more difficult on purpose so that people would buy their routers. I will give a bit more details on my installation with the hope that this may help some first timers. I have one desktop and one laptop with Windows XP and used the same IP addresses Uri did (I initially turned off wireless security):

Initial G710 IP address 192.168.0.30

Router IP address 192.168.1.1

1. Download the latest firmware from [...] and load it onto the laptop.

2. Connect the laptop to the G710 with the ethernet cable. Assign an IP address of 192.168.0.29 (subnet 255.255.255.0) to the laptop using instructions on p. 28-30 of the manual. Since the first three numbers of this IP address are the same as the first three numbers of the G710 IP address, the laptop and G710 can now talk to each other.

3. In Internet Explorer, go to [...]

Type admin for the name and leave password blank to log into the G710. Go to the admin tab and update the firmware (p. 17 of the manual, this is optional but IMHO a good idea)

4. You need to change the G710 IP address so that it can talk to the router. Enter a static IP in the Network tab as described on p. 14 of the manual. This static IP should share the first three numbers with the router and the fourth must be different from the other items in your network. In my case, I changed the G710 to 192.168.1.30 The subnet mask was 255.255.255.0, and the gateway should be the same as the router IP address (192.168.1.1 in my case)

5. After you make these changes, the G710 may be restarted.
