5.0 out of 5 stars Was worried, but now thrilled, August 6, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I read the reviews posted on this product and was a little concerned. I went to the Netgear website and found the instructions, firmware and everything needed. I examined the information to determine if I wanted to take the risk in purchasing the range extender. I needed the extra boost to get my wifi to extend to my deck outside. I took the gamble and ordered it. I received this unit when promised by Amazon, thank you Amazon. I opened the box and as reported by other reviewers, there were no instructions. I had already read them on the website and knew what to do. It took me all of 5 minutes to find a location, plug it up, link it to my network (Belkin router) and begin to stream on my deck. I also linked my Foscam wireless camera to the extender and it helped my broadcasting abilities (the wireless camera had been struggling to keep wifi connection). I can not say how easy it was to install. I waited a week before I posted a review to give it some time to give me trouble. We recently had a storm and lost power. Once the power was restored, it started right back up with my network. I think this will boost the enjoyment to my deck and it's usage. If you are thinking of purchasing the Factory Refurbished Netgear WN2000RPT Universal WiFi Range Extender, you should! It is definitely worth it!! Before extender our ipods got 1-2 bars with low bandwidth, now we get full bars and stream with no problem!! We LOVE this product!!

W.Lovelace, you are dead on correct, and because of what you posted I decided to purchase the Netgear WN2000RPT Universal WiFi Range Extender - Refurbished unit and glad I did. Everything you said is correct. I paid $22.99 for it on Amazon, ordered it before 3pm pst, and got it the next day! Fanastic Amazon!.

Bestbuy was selling this unit for $35-45.00 new. I have it DOWNSTAIRS in the family room, which is about 48ft away from the COMCAST WiFi ARRIS XFINITY CABLE ROUTER which is UPSTAIRS in the master bedroom. The placement of the Netgear extender IS NOT "line of sight". And it still puts out 5 bars instead of 1-2 bars on my samsung galaxy mega phone as it did prior to getting this refurbished unit. We always had trouble streaming movie from a USB flash drive adapter connected to the phone and streamed to the big screen HDTV. BUT now, there is no "buffering" or slow down because of the Netgear Extender. And like you said W.Lovelace, this Netgear WN2000RPT Universal WiFi Range Extender - Refurbished "IS better than a new one", because it has been double checked by the NetGear people the second time around.

Thanks for your very insightful post .
