I bought the Netgear WN2000RPT primarily to get a wired hub away from my Dlink DIR825 router. As a bonus I found that the WN2000RPT signal strength is much better than that of the Dlink router almost anywhere in the house and reaches much further, such as a kids bedroom and an outside patio that had been troublesome. For that it deserves 5 stars. However, its setup after a few days reached a point of me screaming I was going to send it back, only to decide to try "one more thing". That miraculously turned out to work. I'll spare you the contortions the Extender and I went through along the way, but I have quite a lot of experience with networks and this thing drove me to despair.

So here are a few pointers that hopefully may help you:

- my unit does NOT reset to factory default however many times I push the darn reset. That may in fact have
been the main part of my problems, but it would not surprise me if other units suffer from the same.

- the WN2000RPT is a 2.4-GHz device (which, by the way, is the reason that some users complain about not
being able to 'see' the 5-GHz channel of their dual-band router). It took me a while to remember
that I set up my dual-band Dlink with 11g-only on the 2.4-GHz channel and 11n-only on the 5-GHz one.
Thus make sure that 11n is also offered on the 2.4-GHz channel from the router for a fast connection.

- The Setup Wizard for the WN2000RPT is pretty annoying because (a) it does not allow you to branch to the
manual setup right at the start. It allows you to go there at the end, but I frequently lost access to
the Extender before getting to that point. Use '[...] to try to
jump away from the Wizard to the manual setup.

This is an update to my previous review shown below. Less than a month after installing and setting this unit up, it started dropping the connection with my router. After over an hour with tech support, they determined the unit defective. They sent me a warranty replacement unit which exhibited the same annoying trait...dropped connections after 24-48 hours of operation. The unit sits only 20 feet from the router, shows 85% signal strength and is not affected by other electrical, electronic or microwave devices. Save your money and don't bother buying this product. It is a waste of time and money.

Initial Review: After trying numerous WIFI range extenders and experiencing lousy performance and incredibly useless tech support, I took a chance on this Netgear unit. What an incredible unit this is! I had it set up and functioning in less than 15 minutes, AND, I didn't even have a second computer for the wireless setup as suggested in the instructions. I actually set it up using my iPhone browser. I set the unit in the middle of the house, with my router at one end and the iPhone at the other (125' away). The signal strength on my iPhone changed from no bars to a full signal strength set of bars. This Netgear unit is awesome!

This WiFi extender has done everything it has advertised. It was easy to set-up and recognized quickly by my lap-top, 5 minutes top for set-up. I now have two iPhones, two lap-tops, TV (wi-fi), desktop PC, and BlueRay hooked up to it. The four additional ports are priceless. Obviously not running all at the same time, but acess has been ideal. I've performed speed tests and it's speed is slightly slowly than original signal, but not by much. From my research this is a common trait of extenders.

Only suprise was that it didn't "extend" my network like my brain would think. Instead of picking up a weak signal, strengthening and broadcasting, it acutally broadcasts as another SSID. Not too big of an issue after inserting all the security passwords into the wireless components for the 1st time. After that, connection is transparent when the wireless devices pick up the strong signal.

Highly recommend product.

I have used Netgear routers for many years and I have found their mid-range products to be excellent choices for home applications. I have a large house with one router and 2 wireless access points that adequately covers most of my house but there are some dead spots. I had read good reviews about this product and when I first set it up it worked flawlessly for several hours. The next day, however, the extender failed to connect to my router although the signal strength was excellent. I reset the extender and again it worked flawlessly for a short period of time but then access became intermittent. Perhaps there is a way to get this working properly or perhaps I have a bad product but in my experience wireless products either work well or don't, they do not get better over time. Because of this I am returning the extender and I do not recommend it to others.

Product forums for the NetGear WN2000RPT reveal the product repeatedly drops IP addresses after short intervals of successful use and no firmware fix is yet available (July 2011). Having spent several hours on tech support with NetGear, the bottom line is they have not yet produced a solution and your wifi network will fail and be difficult to reestablish after each incidence of failure. Be aware that initial satisfaction can be quite high since the product often works well for a number of hours following initial simple setup or rebooting. However, this functionality soon disappears and you find yourself spending many hours looking for a technical solution that apparently does not yet exist. This product was clearly not ready for prime time when it was released and the product should be recalled in my opinion.
