Will this product help us obtain an connectivity while in this apartment. As of right now, only sometimes a connection can be found with just the router but only about 1/4 bars appear.

        Answer

        Yes! My guest house is 300 feet away from my main house. You simply have to put the wifi in the next room. My modem is in the basement and the extenders in the main bedrrom next to it. Works perfectly!

          Answer

          Absolutely. That is exactly what I have, at first I thought it was the router and took it back to Comcast for a replacement but not the fix to my problem, after a little research I tried the wifi extender. Now everything works as it should. It's soooo easy to set up.

              Answer

              I am not a technician. Just a simple user. I plugged it in and it picked up every network in a two block area so I don't think the router has anything to do with it. It was idiot proof to install. I would highly recommend this product.

              extending wifi signal with a wired ethernet connection   (5 Answers)

              I have a wired (ethernet) outlet in the room from where I want to extend the wifi signal since I have a very large home and backyard. My set-up includes a Netgear Router 1900 nighthak that is connected to the modem creating the wifi. In the room where I have the wired ethernet port I have my old netgear 600 router acting as a repeater. The signal is OK but not great. I wonder if the signal would be better if I replace the netgear 600 router that is acting as a repeater with a Netgear AC1200 extender connecting it via the same ethernet wired port. Thanks, Claudio

                Answer

                Yes, this device can be used as a repeater or connect to a lan port for a new WiFi hotspot. If your current wireless is slow then I would wire to this device.

              • Question
                How does this compare to the Netgear 6200 extender?   (5 Answers)

                The extender specs for the Netgear 6200 and 6150 appear identical. Apart from the additional Ethernet ports on the 6200, which I don't need, is there any other benefit to it? I like the smaller form factor of the 6150 but more importantly I want the most powerful extender I can get. Any help or insight would be most appreciated. Thank you.

                  Answer

                  Simon - not sure if this answer is too late, but if I remember correctly, the fellow at Best Buy where I purchased my 6150 stated that the power was the same - the primary difference was number of ports and maybe some other perk that I cannot remember. I was looking for the most power possible because of the location of my only Ethernet access (in the basement corner of a three level home), so I'm pretty certain I would have gotten the 6200 if there was a great power difference. Hope this helps.

                    Answer

                    I have a quad level home and installed the AC1200 in a room on the top floor. I have a very strong signal in all rooms on every floor as well as outside in the yard. Just be sure to place it as high up as possible, being on the middle floor should give you a nice signal all around.

                      Answer

                      That is a great question one that would be best answered by the hotspot manufacturer or the range extender manufacturer. There might be a bit of configuration that needs t be completed by a skilled network guru.
