3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, not great, November 4, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Netgear WN2000RPT Universal WiFi Range Extender - Refurbished (Personal Computers)
I bought this as a refurbished unit. I was able to install it without issue, except that I was expecting to be able to install it in such a fashion so that it would work "seamlessly" with my existing router (also a Netgear). Instead, it installs as a second access point so that I have to manually switch between access points (routers) depending upon where I am in my house. Not a huge problem, but I was expecting to be able to install it in a seamless fashion so that I was automatically using the router with the better signal no matter where I was in the house.

My only other complaint is that this router sometimes needs to be reset for no apparent reason. I've had it installed for about two weeks now and have had to reboot it about 4 times. But hey, I bought it refurbished, it was $30, I guess I shouldn't expect much (and I wasn't when I bought it). This occurs less when a device is actively using the router. The problem seems to occur more often when it sits idle, without data flowing through it.

Overall, if you can still get this for $30, it's a good buy.

It may be that your router auto scans for the best channel, and whenever it does this (especially if it changes to a different channel), the wireless extender loses the connection. This happened a lot with my Hawking HWREN1 Hi-Gain Wireless-300N Range Extender. Once I set the router to stay on the same channel all the time, the Hawking has never lost the connection since.
