          Yes. Netflix would not work on our 3rd floor until I got this extender. After that, it connected right away.

            Answer

            Yes, I use mine at hotels where I don't have access to the router either. You don'the need physical access, just connect to the Extender via wireless network (enter code for Extender to verify it's yours), then just connect to the router using your internet browser and it walks you right through the setup. Couldn't be easier. Hope this helps.

              Answer

              Depends on conditions and obstacles. I get 300 feet from my patio with it plugged in outside, or 100 feet when inside. Line of sight makes for longer range.

            Is this pretty much plug and play? Is there a CD for setup or just do it from iPad? Thanks, Tony

              It is not plug n play like USB devices. There is no cd. After powering up the RE6300 you use your setting wifi and connect to the RE6300via network id: Linksys Extender Setup-XXX Go to Safari and use address http://externder.linksys.com This will get you to an easy setup menu setting connections and passwords. Very easy

                Answer

                No, it's won't likely help with that unless your wifi signal is so degraded due to range that you need a boost.

                Answer

                Hi Mike. No. However, this device will increase the range of a wireless home network and provide Wi-Fi range extension with the two non-detachable external antennas. This automatically extends both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz network of dual-band routers once you set it up.

                Hi, Rita. This device should get you a stronger signal. As long as you have the correct credentials to connect to the main Wi-Fi.
