It's a neat little unit and works well.
The setup is quite good as well.

Didn't work for me, tested it on and off with a speed checker and wifi analyzer and made no difference.

Sounds like yuz configured it wronger then....init

Ive got one plugged in upstairs and it gives a stronger signal all around the house than my router which is plugged in the hallway.

Worked a treat for me

How do they work ?

Just out of curiosity, does anyone know of a unit that does work well?... any Reviews/Tests?

We had poor wifi signal upstairs so i have tried a few of these extenders including this one and they don't work well.
I ran a network cable upstairs and added a cheap second router and this works really well.

WiFi extenders only extend the range of the signal quality they recieve they will no imrove internet speeds etc, they will only allow devices that cannot connect to your router because they cannot recieve the signal to be connected via this bridge device.

Worked great for me, I've got three of these running across farm barns, Ive got a continuous wifi network now, but it helps having a strong starting signal and bandwidth

Great for dead spots around the house and garden.Heat added

I had a spare powerline adapter and connceted one of these: amazon.co.uk/gp/…c=1

Much better, but only if you have a powerline adapter lying about.

£13.99 on amazon, only good if spending more than £20 for free delivery.

To be honest, I've followed instructions and seems to be working, but wasn't - on each of the three "wi-fi extenders" I bought !

Great if it worked for you but it didn't for me. I even called their 'helpline' who were beyond useless and after taking 15 minutes just to understand what the problem was (it didn't work!) they told me i'd need to pay 9.99 to get some premier help which 'should' fix the problem!

Not what it's for. It won't make your wifi faster. It just enables you to stand further away from your router. I have onw and it works just dandy.

Bought one for the parents house, eliminated the dead spot fine. Just make sure it's in an area that can receive a decent signal from your main router!

A device as such would be slower for those connecting to the network using it.

This is due to the fact the same radio is used to accept incoming and outgoing packets from clients as it does to forward those packets on to the next wifi router and accept replies.

So effectively you get half the bandwidth, as each packet must go over the air twice.

Sorry for the noobie nature of this post... And I know this is a rather dead thread... But desperate for a wifi extender...and have found this...

It says 'N300' in the comments...and it's £12.99... Is it a good deal or not?... Reviews aren't too great? Would appreciate any feedback from anyone with experience!... Thanks
