    Wow - love the attitude! I'm just providing a link to something that does the same job for less - some people might actually find that useful.

    Might be better getting this as it can be powered from a USB connector and connected to a TV or Bluray player or games console:

    We don't need your input on what would be better as if that was the case why not just say get a wired network installed. This is about the deal and this deal is hot from me. :D

    That's a router. This is a range extender.

    It's actually both of these and more:

    AP Mode, Router Mode, Client Mode, Repeater Mode, Bridge Mode

    and is cheaper so surely a better deal?

    I'm actually buying this to replace a TP Link Extender. I've had a few TP Link products and I always have issues with the firmware, Netgear Products are simple and reliable. I've just set this extender up and its great, excellent speeds too.

    Can you put these devices whee the wifi signal starts to drop out? Or do they have to be where the signal is still strong, then they extend it further?

    I've located this near where my signal drops, Slightly closer to the router then it boosts and extends the signal. The best place for these is a point in the house between the router and the problem area. Hope this helps.

    I've been trying to extend the signal, so goes from one building to the next building, so there is a gap outside where I can't really put any repeater or router, unless I can find a way of housing it outside. In the next building I do get wifi signal, but it is unstable. The wifi signal is sometimes 3 bars, but can drop to one or nothing. I guess if the signal is so poor it can drop out altogether, this won't really help make it any more reliable?

    If its dropping from 3 bars to zero I would try changing the wireless channel on your router. Interference nearby might be creating an unstable connection eg, Cordless phones.

    Just noiticed that the Netgear extender is quoted as 300mbps on some sites, whereas the TP_LINK is 150. Will this make a difference in real terms?

    It really depends on your router specs and the speed your network hardware can achieve. In real terms 150mb/s is plenty for most tasks including HD Streaming.

    Wow - love the attitude! I'm just providing a link to something that does the same job for less - some people might actually find that useful.

    I appreciate it. I actually just bought a second router last week to install DD-WRT firmware on it and use it as a repeater bridge to extend the wireless network coverage in my house, and came onto this thread to suggest that as an alternative because, for the same price or even less, you'd get a device that actually does a lot more. Sure, you might set it up to extend your wireless network now, but if your needs change (you move house, etc.) you can put it back into AP mode and have a regular router again.

    Sure, it's worth posting a deal on here to say that this particular item is now available for £24.99 for those that want exactly this, but it's also worth pointing out that you can do the same thing with a second router, which could work out cheaper, or give you more features for the same price, for people who are looking into it but haven't decided what they want yet.

    can you extend the wifi signal whilst having a different SSD from the source wifi?

    Yes. You can change the SSD and also the Security method. It also has the ability to use access lists.
