      I love this product, and it is working beautifully. I got it to extend WiFi to the backyard, as the pool and gazebo are at least 50 feet from the house and were getting inconsistent WiFi at best. Now I have seamless coverage throughout the entire backyard. I would just like others to note that, in order to take advantage of the mesh features, you MUST update the firmware. I had not noticed this on the original description, and I was frustrated that two ext networks had been created. I saw that others voiced the same concern, so I wanted to explain how to do this for those who, like myself, may not be so technologically gifted. After setting up the device as described in the instruction manual, make sure you are connected to one the ext networks and go to www.mywifiext.net. You have to sign in (I think you make up an account, but I don’t exaclty remember; either way, it is self-explanatory), and it should tell you you can update firmware. If it doesn’t, you can also see where it says updates and search for updates. After that is complete, you go into settings and change them to allow One SSID and Smart Roam (or something like that, you get the idea! I don’t exactly remember what the two things said, but it was obvious). After that, only one network name will be shown, which will be the original network name. With roaming enabled, you’ll be able to enjoy your connected devices with no dead spots and without having to manually change networks. Enjoy!

      Works BEYOND expectations!

      I purchased this Netgear Nighthawk range extender to use with the Netgear Arlo cameras and base station on a metal pole-barn at the back of my property. Initially, I was going to plug this in about 112 feet from my WiFi router. But, then I would have had to construct a box to protect the range extender and Arlo base station from the elements. So, I took the range extender into my pole-barn and plugged it in there and plugged the Arlo base station into the ethernet port on the bottom of the extender. I was absolutely AMAZED that I was getting a WiFi signal!!! Not only is my pole-barn about 400 feet from the router, there are also numerous trees between the pole-barn and router (which is inside my house). Plus the extender is about another 8 feet inside the pole-barn! The WiFi signal light on the extender is amber (which means it's weaker) but, I am shocked that it is working beyond expectations! I believe it states that the normal range is 300+ feet. Well, here's proof it works 400+ feet! And, with my Arlo base station right inside the barn, the cameras are close enough to it, that it doesn't drain their batteries. The camera on the back of my pole barn is approximately 445 feet from the router and works just fine!!! I also have another Arlo base station in my house to work with the other 3 cameras around my house. *Note - If you are buying a range extender for your Arlo cameras, you'll need one that has an ethernet port on it. You have to plug the Arlo base station into that ethernet port. The Arlo base station receives the camera transmissions on it's own, independent signal. So, boosting a WiFi signal from your router will NOT help the signal between the Arlo cameras and base station.

      Net Gear Range Extender X4 AC2200

      I am part of the Net Gear Friends and Family Program and I received this new Net Gear Extender this week to test. Results: Set Up: Fairly straight forward. Their directions are good and thorough so it should be easy for most anyone to follow. I had no issues getting my new model to work. I would suggest removing any other extender you might have because they share the router names. Speed: After set up I performed several speed tests from different locations. I typically have trouble getting range in my garage so I tested their first and was able to finally achieve a decent download speed : 28.89 and an upload of 9.72. Before, with my older extender I wasn't able to get more than 8 Mbps so it's a pretty substantial improvement. Inside the house I'm getting 100+ from most locations and before I could get 100 download near my old extender but certainly nowhere near even 50 if I was on the far end of the house. Product itself: Some may not like this but I prefer it 100% over the alternative, the power plug is attached to the unit on this device. You don't need a separate power cord and a place to set the unit on. Like a Carbon M detector this unit plugs directly into the wall. Nicely hidden behind a dog Kennel. Rating: I give Net Gear a 5 for this extender. No doubt a big improvement over my previous unit.

      Solid Extender for large homes

      Works well and was easy to set up. Only hindering aspect of the product (to which I didn't think of prior to purchase) was that it works off your existing network signal, but in lieu of simply amplifying it, it creates a second network ID for the existing signal. For example, if your current wifi network name is Network 1, the product will create an independent signal off of Network 1, called Network 2. Not a huge deal if your use case is similar to mine where my upstairs tv's and connected devices are all static (remain upstairs), but for phones/ tablets/ laptops, and the like, you need to constantly switch networks when moving throughout the home or default device to attempt auto-connect to strongest signal, based on location. Again, not a huge deal - just something I didn't think about prior to purchasing, as my assumption was my existing "Network 1" signal would simply be amplified by the product. Overall I'd recommend.

      Better Range Than I Expected

      It took me a little while to get this extender set up, but once all the lights went green I knew I was in business. I actually got this unit to increase the wifi range at my business, which occupies nearly 8000 square feet. Once I placed it pretty much centrally, I walked to the farthest corners of our space and couldn't believe I had full signal strength to everywhere except minus one bar in one corner, but still plenty strong enough to stream. I think this unit is actually substantially stronger than the router I've been using, provided by my cable company. What's cool about how this thing works is, you still keep your initial wifi network with it's area of coverage, and then the extender creates two additional beefy networks, a 2G and a 5G. I could have easily spent lots of $$$ on professional IT help and commercial equipment; this little powerhouse is worth every penny of what I think is a reasonable $140 price tag. Thanks to everyone else who reviewed this product, I found those helpful!

      Piece of Junk to be Avoided

      Posted
      Mark

      Bottom line, does not work. Speeds are slower than when accessing my Dlink 890L router directly. Does not eliminate dead spots. Frequently loses connection to internet. Spent a full day installing, resetting, relocating, rebooting to try to get it to perform. Many calls to Netgear (they answered quickly with a ticket number provided online) but their tech support is in India and frequently speak with such heavy accents that they cannot be understood. The phone connection to India is often very poor. Regardless, the tech support can only read from their scripts and they provide no useful answers. The device takes several minutes to reboot which is crazy. The device interface is poorly done and only available via browser which frequently gives "404 Error Not Found". Netgear's products should be avoided unless you like wasting a lot of time. I will be returning the device for credit this afternoon.

      Extending your Comcast router beyond 45 feet

      Let’s cut to the chase. As good as the Arris router is (Comcast rental or buy your own), you still get drop out zones if you have a big house. My house is hardly huge, but suffers from degradation of service 45 feet away and on the the lower and upper floor. My solution was to buy my Arris router (same as Comcast) and boost the signal by placing this device about 20 feet from the hard wired router. It creates a 2G and 5G network with same password. It’s a nice device since it tells you with green and red lights if you have an optimal placement. So far we have solved the dropout zone problem. Though the solution was expensive if you consider Arris router plus this extender ($440). Terribly expensive on top of humongous Comcast monthly fee.

      I own a house that’s roughly rectangular in shape. For a lot of reasons, I had to place my Wi-Fi router at one end of the house and that resulted in a very low/nonexistent Wi-Fi signal at the opposite end of the house. I already owned a Nighthawk X8 AC5300 Tri-Band Wi-Fi Router so I wanted something compatible with it. The Netgear Nighthawk X4 Wi-Fi Extender seemed a logical choice since it handled the multi-band router and provided the needed Wi-Fi capacity. Set up was pretty easy but you’ll have to set up each of your Wi-Fi devices to recognize the new transmitter. I don’t know if this will support gaming (I’m not a gamer) but it works well for video streaming. (Your salesperson should be able to help you with this.) I now have great Wi-Fi signal strength throughout my home and even in my back yard. Recommended.
