        Comments about Linksys RE1000 Wireless-N Range Extender:

        With CD, the installation is very easy. The repeater need to be near setup computer and wireless router. Once the setup is done, you can locate the repeater far away from the router. That's all you need for setting up (don't even connect any wire to router or computer).

        The US version has no power on/off button, unlike those from Europe version. Why they need to be different?

          Comments about Linksys RE1000 Wireless-N Range Extender:

          The extender was easy to set up (but...you need a computer using WiFi to do it; a hard wired computer, attached with an Ethernet cable, will not work). And, it does not boost a signal but does extend whatever signal it is receiving to a much wider area. The trick is to find the best location. I used Wifi Analyzer, a free app for android (and, I believe, the iphone as well), to find the strongest signal near the area that was not receiving a signal from my router. I found an appropriate area and I have a whole floor in my house that was nearly a dead zone now receiving a good signal.

            My circumstances are unique, so I really cant rate this item like it should be. I have a shop that is 50 feet from the house. I have a Grace internet radio in it. When I first tried using the extender, I didn't get good reception, and I still don't know what the problem was. I went through the setup twice more and finally got the reception I wanted. I also tried a couple locations in my shop. Right now I don't seem to have any problem. Since I am not in the shop all the time, I unplug the extender, and then replug it in when I return. It has been working fine that way. So I will update this review if I see a need to.

                Comments about Linksys RE1000 Wireless-N Range Extender:

                I wanted to extend the wireless signal from my basement to the rest of my house (including the second floor). I wanted to give this unit a try as it was smaller and cheaper than the the other units offered at B&H. My lot is about 50 feet by 100 feet and my second floor is about 40 feet away from the router in the basement. That being said, I was quite pleased that after installing and setting up the unit I was able to get a wifi signal with at least 60% strength in all rooms within my house.What I've noticed about the unit is that despite the relatively strong signal strength, there are times that the speed of my connection from the extender can feel sluggish when compared to using the wifi connection near the router. For the convenience of having a wifi signal in my entire house without too much additional effort, I would say that this was a valuable purchase.Two tips: 1) Windows 8 PC's cannot run the setup software from the disc unless you change the properties to run in Windows 7 compatibility mode.2) Purchase some velcro if you want to mount the unit in a place you deem to give the best signal.

                                    Comments about Linksys RE1000 Wireless-N Range Extender:

                                    I thought this would provide a more powerful signal than my Verizon Wireless Modem. When I installed it near the router, the signal in the areas where the Verizon Modem signal was usually low was still low. I had to find a location between the wireless modem and the problem areas of the house to install the Range Extender. This gave me better signal strength in the previously weak areas. Overall, works pretty well, even though it was not what I expected.
