From the Manufacturer
The Diamond WR300N wireless range extender and repeater will increase the range of your existing wireless coverage removing those wireless dead spots and or weak areas of your network. It's like having three devices in one: the WR300N functions as a wireless extender to increase your wireless range, a standalone wireless access point to create a wireless network, and a wireless bridge to extend your home's Ethernet coverage.
The small form factor lets you plug the unit directly to the wall socket without any additional cables. For frequent travelers, this means you can bring your own wireless network on the road. Use in your hotel room to transform your wired Ethernet internet access into a mobile Wi-Fi network to share with multiple notebooks and smartphones.

Eventually we settled on this product. Once it arrived, setup was a breeze. I plugged it into a wall socket, gave it a moment to initialize, and then logged into its web server backend using a web browser pointed to the specified IP Address (don't worry; it's easy). From there, a wizard actually walks you through the available options: repeating or actually setting up a parallel (separate) network which shares the same internet/network connectivity.
It's pretty simple how it works in case you aren't familiar. The device connects as a client to the existing wireless network, then emits its own signal separately using, by default, the same network settings (SSID, encryption, and security settings) to either enhance the existing signal or add another network connectivity option with a separate SSID and even different encryption if you choose. This allows you to easily correct problems with poor signal quality, coverage, or range.Read more ›
To solve my problem, I first placed the unit next to my wireless router. Suddenly, my speeds were back to what I was used to. I then gradually moved the device farther away from my wireless router to see when the speeds started to drop. Voila! Problem solved.
The Repeater is designed to amplify your signal. However, like the old statement goes, "garbage in, garbage out." What was happening is: the repeater will amplify your signal, but this does not mean you are getting a clean signal back to your router. The repeater needs to have a strong signal to communicate with your router at full speed. If it can't, it will throttle back to a slower speed.
So, in summary, if you place this repeater in an area with a WEAK signal, it will work. DO NOT place it in an area with virtually no signal. The router's signal "bubble" and the repeater's signal "bubble" need to overlap. My repeater is centrally located on the first floor. This allows the wireless router (on the second floor) to talk to the repeater cleanly. The repeater then amplifies the signal to my basement. Problem solved.
6/20/2012 update - We have had two of these devices running at our church now for about 9 months. I have had to make a couple of minor tweaks to the configuration to keep everything running smoothly, especially after our service was switched to AT&T U-verse. I am not a big fan of the U-verse equipment and was not surprised that some tweaking was required. Here are some tips for others which may address some of the issues causing people to post poor reviews of this product:
1. Regardless of your ISP equipment, change the channel ID from "Auto" to something specific. Channels 1, 2, or 3 are good choices. Once you set the channel you may have to reset or even reconfigure the extender.
2. To reset the extender:
A. Push a paper clip in the reset button (bottom of device) for 5 seconds or more. Make sure the device is plugged in when you do this.
B. Turn off wireless on your laptop
