Close to the the best - definitely not the worst

I tested 5 extenders from BB. This was tied for second. Both second devices were easy to set up with Chrome on my iPad. These devices were 20% less download (using speedtest.net) than the winner.

Don't trust this one!

It worked well at first. Just four months later, it totally died. I called technical support and the technician could not do anything to revive it. He then offered an exchange for another unit. The problem, however, was I had to send my broken unit all the way to California (USA) and wait quite sometimes for the new unit to come.

Setting up

The instructions told me not to use Firefox to access the Extender program. They suggested Internet Explore but after trying several times with no success I decided to use Firefox anyway. The program came up immediately and I was able to go ahead with the setup. I found a slight improvement in my signal but not as much I had hoped for. I will try plugging it into different rooms and see if that helps. So far the unit appears to work OK with no resets necessary.

Worked as expected.

Signal issue

Does the job.

Does the job that it was made to do in the least amount of techno babble foolishness. Almost plug and play.... Which would have been nice.

Works great once you get it placed correctly

It took me a few attempts to get this to work well in my relatively small house. My main wifi is in the rear of the house and my daughter's room in the front upstairs had spotty service. After numerous tries to get it working in my office, with lossy connections, I simply moved the extender back closer to the main router until it got a stronger signal. The wifi app that they provide on their site (free) is very helpful to find a place where the signal from the main router is strong enough so that the extender keeps the connection up.

Amped wireless wi-fi range extender

Works good, but range might not be as high as indicated, probably due to walls and interference. Very easy to install.
