Best extender I’ve ever used
Reviewed in the United States on August 14, 2018
Don’t believe the negative reviews. They are from people who don’t know how to properly set up and operate the extender. I’ve had 3 different types before this that I wasn’t thrilled with. My netgear ac1900 model for $109 was pretty good. But this unit is amazing. It did take a little while to setup the first time because of rebooting and so on. But after that, WOW!!! What an amazing unit. It’s worth every penny. My home is only a few years old and it’s 3 full finished floors. It’s over 4000 sq feet of finished space.
My xfinity all in one router/modem gives me speeds of 300 plus download and 12 upload. That’s the fastest available speed for home use in my area. But my basement was always lacking and getting maybe 90 download at best before an extender. The 1st and second floors were getting between 220 and 290. After I hooked this extender up in my basement, I’m getting 215 and 225 everywhere in the basement which is very large. It more than doubled the speed in my basement from just using the xfinity modem/router combo alone. The netgear ac1900 extender was getting 140 in the basement at best. This unit is definitely worth the extra $50. If you have a larger home or have a lot of interference in your home, this is the unit for you. If you don’t like it, amazon gives you a 30 day return policy. You have nothing to lose. But, you won’t be returing it after you hook it up. It’s amazing and super fast.
