I've never written a review before, b/c I usually don't have anything to contribute that someone hasn't already said. This is an exception!
If you're like me, this thing works great - when it's working. But the connection often drops, and seems to get worse with time. It has nothing to do with being too far from the router - when the right-most ("Link Rate") light is on, it's green. But the problem is that it often turns off intermittently (i.e. the connection breaks). As far as I can tell, that's the reason why the ratings from some are low on Amazon.
You may also notice that the left-most (WPS) light flashes. This is actually what causes the problem. I have searched long and hard, and finally found a solution (buried in some forum, not here on Amazon). Now for 2 weeks I have not had a dropped connection once - all 4 lights are always solid green.
Follow these steps. If you're like me, you're a tech idiot. This solution seemed to be too complicated and I actually didn't try it for a couple weeks because of that. But once I decided to do it, it took me less than 15 minutes, and it was the only thing that I found that worked consistently. I can tell you I spent a whole lot more time on other possibilities.

1. Write down the "MAC" numbers/addresses for all the devices you want to be able to connect to the extender. I didn't have a clue what this number was, but I Google'd it and was able to find out how to get them for all my devices (iPhones, laptops, desktops). See step 6 below for another way to get them, too. It should actually be pretty easy. It is always the same for a particular device, like a digital serial number. Here's an example: B4:C2:5F:1C:08:71
2. Go into the extender's wireless settings website: (...)mywifiext.net.

I live in a dorm / hotel situation where the WIFI connection was 2 bars at the best. I quickly figured out that my room was within the range of the router so I bought the Netgar range extender. I was sceptical at first but once I put it up in my room it was like magic. 2 bars are now solid 5 bars and I conect at 144 KBPS vs the 24 - 36 KBPS before. Only down side is that it goes to sleep and after 3-4 hours of inactivity and you have to reboot it each morning to release and renew the IP. Other that that it has been a life saver as I work from home and my VPN connections are robust now.

Took it out of the box, plugged it in, it connected to my router automatically and was available as a wirless connection on my computer in just a few minutes. Spent about 5 minutes entering password info for my router and voila, connected with a 5 bar signal. I used to only get 2 bars on this computer with its distance from the router. Could not be simpler.

Ordered Wi-Fi extender and decided to save $25 by buying the manufacturer refurbished model ($40 versus $65). Unit arrived with a blackened serial number, no software and no instructions. I should have known better at this point. I installed the unit to a Netgear router. Set-up was straightforward using WPS. The extender worked but had several drop outs which I had to repeat the set-up process to resolve. I found on-line that several others had the same problem which was fixed by updating the firmware for the extender. I logged in to the firmware site and found that I needed a serial number to download the firmware. I contacted Netgear to determine how I could update the firmware without a serial number and found that Netgear has a policy of not supporting refurbished units without paying a nominal $40 fee. Really!!! Is this what "manufacturer refurbished" means!!! Nowhere in the Amazon product information is this mentioned. Both Netgear and Amazon should be ashamed of this marketing and support. I could get better support from Craigslist buyers. Reading other reviews it appears if you have no problems that the manufacturer refurbished model saves money. If you have problems, buyer beware.

I bought this Wi-Fi extender so that I could use my iPad in the bedroom, which is on the opposite end of the house from the main computer and the Wi-Fi router. At first glance, the extender works as advertised, connecting fairly easily to my D-Link DIR-655 Extreme-N Gigabit Wireless Router. The iPad picked up the extender signal at full strength all over the house, much better than the strength of the actual router unless the iPad was in the same room as the router.

Note: To make this clear up front, the extender shows up as a separate Wi-Fi network from the parent network. By default, the name will be "[Your Network Name] - EXTENDER"

So to test out the signal, I used an internet speed test app on my iPhone (I completely understand that this method will also be limited by the ISP data rate). The download speeds on the iPhone using the router were in the 10MBs range while the download speeds using the extender were roughly between 1-2MBs. On the otherhand, the upload speeds from both the router and the extender were roughly the same, around 1-2MBs, which is nice considering the difference between the download rates.

Now for the bad part, this extender kept disconnecting from the network, causing any Wi-Fi device to not "see" the extender. The only way to fix this issue was to reset the extender. As this occurred almost on a daily basis, I decided to ship it back. It is entirely possible that the unit I received was bad, but rather than send out for another one, I am going to upgrade my Wi-Fi router that hopefully has a better range.
