This review is from: HooToo® HT-WR01 Wireless N Signal Repeater and Range Extender, (300 Mbps 802.11 b/g/n Access Point / Repeater with WPS Button) (Electronics)
Purchased this product because my newly purchased home has cinder block walls and aluminum siding which no router i tried could get through to allow signal on the back deck. I set this up and had it running in a matter of 5 minutes. Father in law just bought a netgear product that does the same. Difference being he paid almost triple what i did. similar performance fraction of the cost. I found this is easy to install with little to no experience, just plug into the wall and connect wireless. follow the instructions and your done.
i looked around and found several knock-off similar looking but doubted their performance. (most of them are 150 mbps vs this is 300mbps) Don't be fooled, this is what you want. I realistically went from 0 bars of wifi to full strength which was honestly a lot better than i expected for the price. I will be sure to try hootoo products in the future.
1.If you are using this as a wireless repeater as i am to extend your wifi range, name this the same as your current wireless network (called SSID) in setup. This is what allows to now have to switch which you are connected to as you move around.
2. And during set-up when it as for key, this is what your current password is to connect to your wireless now. Nothing more. Simple.
If it sounds like i work for the company, i don't that's just my sigh of relief that this product worked better than expected, lol.
