Best Range Extender,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: NETGEAR N300 Wi-Fi Range Extender - Wall Plug Version (WN3000RP) (Personal Computers)
After trying other range extenders and not being satisfied, I tried the Netgear Range Extender as a last resort before wiring the house. My wifi is set up at one end of the house and cannot get wifi at all in the kitchen and very low reception at the far end of the house. This range extender gives me 3 bars no matter where I am in the house. It is a fantastic product and by far the best on the market.

How is this better than the Apple Airport Express? I'm not trolling, I swear. It's a serious question because I'm trying to decide between the two. The Apple Airport Express is just a few dollars more and includes a music jack and internal antennas and is considered a "premium" product and is a perfect wireless bridge/repeater.

Does the Airport Express work as a repeater with non-Apply wireless routers?

I've been waiting for this product for a very long time (since it was announced at CES 2011) and had considered Airport Express, however jipatata was correct regarding the reason I didn't go for the Airport. According to the description on the Apple website "AirPort Express can extend the range only of an AirPort Extreme or AirPort Express wireless network." In other words I don't see this as working with a non-Apple router.

Do you have brick walls through your home? Because that is my issue, I have cinder block walls and this prevents the wireless signal from travelling through all of the rooms in the house.

This product will take a wifi signal and rebroadcast it as a new (stronger) signal.
Apple Airport Express can do that too, but only if the original signal is from an Apple Airport / Airport Express. However, it can take any wireless signal (assuming the signal strength is strong enough to reach it) and can convert it back to a wired ethernet connection. Neat feature.... but not a "repeater".

As well, the airport express is not compatible with Verizon FIOS routers. I learned the hard way.
