I bought this for friends who have wifi dead spots in their home. It was very easy to set up; just follow the instructions in the video. Once set up, I tested it and had full wifi where before I would have zero to one bar. That's all the good stuff. The bad is that the speed is much slower than normal. I ran a broadband speed test right next to the router and then another where the dead spots were that were using this range extender. The areas that relied on this range extender were about one third of the speed in the normal areas. So I give this product a recommendation if you want light internet usage in previously dead areas. Facebook, email. browsing should all be ok. I'm not sure I'd be able to regularly stream movies, although I did run a youtube video (non-HD) and it worked ok.

Very good range, very stable, great price, not the fastest well done.
Working very well for my setup. I have a huge 6 bedroom brick home that signal barely reached the third floor (I have 10 foot ceilings). This little wonder is able to extend signal from the basement all the way to the third to a wireless thermostat (pretty stably I might add). Very easy to setup, the instructions were easy to follow and I was setup within 2 minutes. The only downside I can think of is that it isn't AC or super fast for todays throughput, but I don't need it for speed, just range really. I typically keep about 3 devices constantly connected to it (one wired into ethernet jack) and this is very very stable device, I haven't had to reset this yet.
