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.Read more ›
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.
