Actiontec WCB3000N overview

  • 1Description

The WCB3000N 802.11n Wireless Network Extender from Actiontec gives you the freedom and flexibility to choose between extending your network via Gigabit Ethernet or using a coaxial cable. This MoCA (multimedia over coax) compatible extender is capable of accepting a network signal from pre-installed coax wiring throughout your home or building. You can also use the Gigabit Ethernet connection as a signal source if coax isn't available.

Regardless of the source of your network connection, this extender operates on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies and comes compatible with 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi networking standards. You will also find two Gigabit Ethernet ports on the back of the extender to connect Ethernet compatible devices directly to your network. Once configured, you can secure your network using WPA, WPA2, WEP, TKIP, and AES encryption standards.

Use Your Home's Existing Coax Wiring
The WCB3000N uses the coax wiring that's already in your home to extend the wireless signal, resulting in a whole-home Wi-Fi network that's faster, stronger, and more reliable.
Dual Band Functionality
The WCB3000N makes sure you get the best enhanced performance with support for both 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies. You don't have to worry about interference problems from home phones, baby monitors, microwaves, or any other devices operating in the 2.4GHz band. You can use the cleaner, less crowded 5 GHz band for video streaming to the home theater for the smoothest viewing experience possible.
Easy Setup
The WCB3000N extender takes the credentials from your existing Wi-Fi network and creates a second network with the same name. This means that your devices go from one network to the other seamlessly.

    Actiontec WCB3000N reviews

    WCB3000N 802.11n Wireless Network Extender with MoCA and Gigabit Ethernet is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super easy! I spent a few weeks looking for a range extender for my Verizon FIOS router, I tried several but none of them worked. Apparently ActionTec doesn't support WDS. This extender works over coax - plug it in to coax, give it power, and you're done. Almost... Replicating my existing SSID was a little more challenging (so the drop in stars) as you need to first hunt a little for the instructions. The 3000 pulled an address from the main router using DHCP which I needed to find before I could connect to it. Once I had that address, it was again quite easy to finalize the configuration so I have one shared SSID on both devices.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Product so,so Support none!! The wireless component about this product will only work with MoCA enbled modems. Tech support said it would. Many hours on the phone with Actiontec and there promise to call me back(after exploring future options), they NEVER called back!! Put in a box and have never used it..

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bridge between router and computer. Works like a charm! My Verizon router is the the front closet by the front door of my office suite, which is about 100 feet from where my office is. So this bridged the gap lovely.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost no buffering In my household we have three computers, four iPhones, and three game systems. PlayStation, wii,and Xbox. Also smart tvs and we have a strong signal every where in the house. Whether upstairs, downstairs its all true same. It's great. I would recommend this extender to anyone and everyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like it So far works as advertised. Easy to setup. Harder to setup the same WiFi name as the main one, but the directions on their web site were good. Would buy another if needed in our house.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Product for Amazing Performance I plugged in the unit to my existing coax in my office. The unit replicated the wireless network and gave me two extra wired gigabit speed ports to boot!
