Added the node to my existing WiFi. Set up was relatively straight-forward, but had to move the new node away from the parent node by just ten feet to complete the sync.

GREAT LINKSYS WIFI EXTENDER!

I was disappointed I had to purchase a 3rd node. But the coverage seems good now. Easy set up (once I got the correct app). Had some assistance from Leo in support really great guy.

Terrible speeds and range. Also, not much you can do from the app. Would be nice if you could assign devices to soecific nodes.
