Will this work with AT&T Uverse 2Wire 3800-HGV-8 router? Looking to extend wi-fi signal in home downstairs. Good signal upstairs, need to improve downstairs. Is this WN3000RP compatible with the AT&T 2Wire 3800-HGV-8 router?
I was asking myself the same question as I am also an AT&T Uverse user considering the purchase of this extender. On reading through the reviews posted on Amazon, I found the following..............
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Netgear Universal WN3000RP Wi-Fi Range Extender (Personal Computers) Finally!! An extender that just plugs in and works perfectly!
If you have a 2Wire 3800 HGV-B, get this extender, because it will work, and work great.
I first bought the Hawking HWREN1 extender, and after spending hours trying to get it to work, it would repeatedly disconnect. After calling customer service, I was told that it won't work with 2Wire products. So frustrating!
Next, I bought the Engenius ERB9250 extender, and that wouldn't work either. Their customer service was atrocious. I couldn't connect to anyone for technical support; despite calling back repeatedly, all I got was a voicemail message. I would never buy another product from them.
All I did with this extender is plug it in, push the WPS button on my router and on the extender, and it connects. Then, you just connect to the new address, which is your SSID + EXT. And that's it. I'm very happy with the product.
