    A must have for Mesh Network enthusiasts

    So I took some time to test this product out. My house has a bit of concrete, but for the most part my WiFi has never been an issue. The only reason I got the extender was initially due to family coming over and while I have the NightHawk Pro Gaming Router which still handles well on its own, the bandwidth/distance being outside of my own home was an issue. I can say without a doubt both the router and this extender are a dynamic duo. Once setup the extender took care of everything and easily moved my devices from my router to the extender point with ease. I can now be outside my home doing a bbq with my family without worrying about my WiFi losing connection. This device fulfilled all my expectations and exceeded them. If you are looking for a top of the line extender/mesh network then this is it.

    I bought this because my nighthawk router which I thought I had a warranty for was not working well in my living room. This extender has added a big range into even my backyard and down my street a bit. I now have my 4k Smart TV hardwired through this and it works wonders. It does however need a restart at least once a week or else it stops working hence the 4 star review not 5.

    Maximum Speed Throughout My Home!!

    I have struggled to find the right WiFi router that would give me coverage throughout my entire home. I purchased a NightHawk router 2 years ago in hopes that this product would provide the answer. Although it dramatically improved wireless reach and speed, I still struggled with certain areas in the house. I went to Best Buy and spoke to a very knowledgable sales person who talked me out of purchasing an entirely new Mesh Network system. He stated that my NightHawk was an outstanding router and that he knew how to solve my problems. I have heard that before but after listening to him, I decided to purchase one NightHawk extender to determine whether it would perform as described. It absolutely "blew me away"!! I was so pleased that I went out the next weekend and bought another Extender to complete the job. Thank you NetGear and Thank you Best Buy!!

    This unit replaced a Linksys RE6300 unit that was always bottle necking one half of my network at the most inopportune times. It would stay connected but the bandwidth wasn’t there. Once I set this thing up it solved all of that. Plus the “mesh” technology makes your entire network seamless. I can now print on the printer in the guest house as well as main printer from anywhere because to the Printer’s they’re all in the same network. Previously they were on separate routers and you had to be on the router that the printer was on to print. This unit eliminated all of that too.

    We have a two story home and run a lot of streaming devices at one time, like security cams, TVs, PlayStation, phones, iPad, etc...We have the Netgear X10 router, Netgear AC1900 router and seemed to have a signal problem. Our speed was not an issue. Long story short, I was looking for a solution so I added this extender. It paired simply and placed it upstairs and wow did it do wonders. Just exactly what I wanted it to do.

    After 1 year of using the netgear 1900, it started dropping the signal, unable to connect to my network, I had to do factory resets couple times, but it didn't work, so I went to the store and luckily I purchased the extended warranty, so I picked this one instead. I have been using it so far couple months and it works great, fast connection and great coverage, easy to set up.

    Seems to work well; setup is a little tricky

    EX7700 comes with a quick start guide that assumes you have a very typical installation and want plug-and-play setup. Do yourself a favor and download the manual from Netgear - it contains a lot more information on setting up the extender.

    Setup on this is pretty straight forward. You set it up right next to your router and once it gets a good signal you can move it elsewhere. I set this extender up in my living room and it helped me get Wi-Fi coverage across the house. I have it set up about 40' away and down one story. The extender gets the job done and looks good doing it. The black design blends in with the rest of my entertainment system and doesn't attract too much attention.

    This thing was exactly what I hoped it was, right out of the box I followed the detailed instructions and 15 minutes later I had WiFi in a place that I didn't have it earlier that day! Plus the signal strength is as good if you were sitting next to your actual router. I use it for a smart TV and we stream movies with ease and it never lags. GREAT PRODUCT!

    I have several dead spots in my house. I had an extender upstairs, and my router in the basement (man cave). But, I still couldn't get a strong signal in the far end. This extender lit up my house with 5G. I run several pieces of exercise equipment that use video for maps or trainer led workouts. It runs them very well and as allowed me to move some other devices over to the 5G network without consequence. It is the best extender I've purchased.

    I did get this and can't really see a noticeable difference in the range. Maybe it just needs to be moved to a better spot but all the lights say it's good where it is. If it doesn't work there I really have no need for one. Hoping to find one of my devices that works better with it than without.

    I was having trouble with some of my wireless security cameras dropping off the network because they were just out of range. I have a Nighthawk AX8 router and this paired with the press of a couple buttons and solved the coverage issue after a couple of trial placements.

    We bought this for our three level house to extend the wifi service, especially upstairs. Overall it has been good. After we first set it up, wifi was good all over the house. Lately upstairs I have to turn the wifi off to let a page download and then turn it back on. Not sure what the problem is with that.

    I know they said it was a easy hookup.. I didn't think it was... I had to call my Techy friend to help me. Even then he kinda was like I see why you called me. The product is great and does what it says it will do! The initial install isn't all that grand! lol

    Had attempted to try another brand upstairs to provide better coverage to the bedrooms, couldn’t get signal just no more than 15 feet away from the router that was downstairs. Returned it and got this and no problems at all and now the whole upstairs has great coverage. My sons tv can now watch videos online without buffering.

    The problems I’m having may be from my Router. But the extender does like using on network name. Every thing in my house gets confused and disconnected. Once I set up separate network names for the 5G to 2G and extender networks everything stays connected and works fine.

    I have tried several of these types of products and this does the best job of enhancing Wifi so far. Its much better than the Xfinity things you plug in the wall. It was an easy setup; however you need two wifi names and they say you only need one.
