      Answer

      My house is 2200 SQR FT and the total property is 8200 SQR FT. The router is about 200FT away from the range extender inside the house on one end and the range extender is on the opposite side. There are several walls separating the router from the extender. By using this product I now have full internet access in and around my house with no problem.

        Answer

        Yes it works fine. The speed depreciated a little...and yet I can stream video and other large downloads with ease. The software makes it pretty easy to connect to the comcast router.

        Using more than one to increase range?   (10 Answers)

        My house is large and has many nooks and crannies. Would it be possible to use two of these to increase coverage to areas of the house that are not receiving any signal now? For example, my basement bedroom doesn't receive a signal and Comcast told me it was because there was too much interference from walls, etc. So I am thinking of using one booster at the half way point which should increase coverage upstairs and a little in the basement and then a second one in the basement itself to boost the signal more down there.

          It would give you wifi signal, however, each one has a different wifi name. You would have to reload wifi in each area. It's better than nothing I think.

          Does this unit have to be plugged in to the same electric circuit as the router is in?   (11 Answers)

          My router is down stairs in the living room and I have a really weak signal in all the upstairs bedrooms so I got a powerline but in the guidelines I noticed it said the Powerline type of extenders they have to be plugged in on the same electric circuit, that didn't work for the way my house is set up so I'm hoping that's not the case with this one as well.

            Answer

            This unit does not use the power line for a signal path. It receives the wireless signal from your router and amplifies it, thereby extending the range (place where there is still a good signal from the router and it will cover your dead spots) or in wireless access mode connects to your network with an ethernet cable and then works as a wireless hotspot.

                Answer

                As you see on my photo; I just built my Router Extension stand out of Alder scrap lumber and use regular wooden broom handle as the pole. In single story home, your less than 2 feet plug outlet above the floor isn't the best way to get max. range without losing left green light. If you get left Amber light, even you get the right Green light. You'll getting great Wi-Fi signal, 'BUT, BUT' your internet is too slow. You get it closer to your main Wireless Router and or you raise your EXT. Router around 6' to 7' above the floor to get green light. You can move this EXT. router from left or to the right until your left green light will go on. After you raise your EXT. router, your Devices will have even more reliable and extended range. Unless you're in the Rural Area, use 5GHz. through your devices instead of 2.4GHz. for more stable range on very quiet band than very over-crowded band from your neighbors. Living too close to the Hospital, I can't help you, because even 5GHz. is so clutter from Hospital. Good-Luck!

                  No.. you must have internet... that was what I thought too. big mustake. you can get your neighbor to set it up for you if they have internet and it will work on their router, and give you a strong wifi in your home.. but they end up with the extender and you might want to work something out with them.

                    I have a different router "product". It is not net gear. Will it still work well? I have looked at other WiFi extending products and they require for the extender and the original router to perfectible be the same company.

                        Yes, I have TWC with an Arris MAXX TG1672G modem and the unit works perfectly. Significantly extended my WiFi signal strength and coverage! Great throughput! It also worked flawlessly with an older TWC Arris DOCSIS 3.0 modem before I was upgraded to MAXX.
