Tap-ex wifi extender

worst product

Bought this wifi range extender after reading all the good reviews.Setup is easy but it keeps telling me my home network security password is incorrect even though I am sure my password is correct. I called the customer service twice and the wait time is over an hour each time and the technical support person is useless; they don't know what they are talking about. They kept telling me just follow the instructions without giving any directions. When I told them the issue, they just say the product is defective and you should return it to point of sale which is bestbuy.Worst product ever.

Increased Performance

My modem is located on the upper level of a 3 story home. I placed the Amped Wireless range extender in the living room on the second level. The signal improved by almost 50% on both the second level and in the basement. Great, helps a lot. Now, my only concern is having my Fibe 10Gb/s modem to actually consistently deliver more than 2Gb/s so I can stream on demand content.

I have been very disappointed in many WiFi boosters, and I have tried many. This is by far the best after early testing. Very easy setup, clean signal and boosts very well. Hasn't dropped out once so far. Very easy to relocate if you want it close to something to hardwire into one of its ports and reboots quickly. I'm glad I found this and highly recommended you try it if you're having WiFi issues.

Good product. Does the job.

I bought it to amplify the weak wifi. So far, it works like a charm and gives me full bar on both my windows and linux machines.

The best money I ever spend in any wifi item I bought two very please.

My first range repeater router ....and i have to say it does quite well. Easy setup, good wifi coverage. The only downfall is the stock antenna it comes with. I added a better antenna and turned the power output to the lowest setting and let the performance of the better antenna do the work... not overload the transmit amplifiers in router..... I set the router as a bridge config. and using my neighbors internet with their permission. The money I saved.... paid itself! ...Would like to see the manufacture add a quiet fan for added measure to keep things cool!

6th Time Lucky!!!

Finally a range extender that works in my house. Tried 5 before this, and returned every other one to the vendor. Great range pick-up and signal strength, and so easy to set up. Electronic clock does not keep good time, so I just shut it off. If you are getting tired of looking for an extender that keeps it's promises, this is the one to try.
