Very Easy

It is very easy to setup. I thought at first maybe it wasn't working, because it didn't seem to connect right away, but I think the key is you have to give it a few minutes, for it to actually finish connecting. I used a signal strength tester app and the room went from "poor" to "good".

Tried for a day, then returned. Would not keep connection to main router

I purchased one previously from another store but had to return it die to a defect. I bought from Best Buy to try it again. This extender kept losing connection to my main router requiring full power resets on both devices to reconnect. I returned it to Best Buy and bought a similar Netgear extender and that one works without problems.

easy fix for bad wifi

I have rogers modem that was installed 2 years ago. I can nver get good wifi upstairs. I thought and give this a try before calling in a rogers tech. Install is very easy just tap a few buttons. I now have 80% strength versus maybe 10% before. Easy fix and not to exensive.

Good performance

Easy to setup, you can extend the existing 2.4 and/or 5 Ghz network keeping the same exact SSID (and encryption), I get at least triple the bandwidth in a shed 50 feet away from the house. Not sure what went wrong with the other reviewers, product works exactly as designed...

No Issues connecting, signal indicator very helpful

Just bought this, plugged it in, took about a minute and the indicator let me know if it was in the right spot so I had 3 green bars. Pretty simple solution and got a great deal at Best Buy.

DLink extender

I bought this extender yesterday and was eager to get it up and running, like all the reviews here, I couldn't get it to connect and was thinking of taking it back. I got up early this morning, read the instructions and followed the set up thru the browser on my laptop. Was sooooo easy and all working fine so far. I am happy with it. Only gave it 4 stars as I felt the instructions can be a little confusing.

Works great

It does the job. I needed better signal in the second bedroom. I did the WPS setup and within 5 minutes was done. I now have good signal where I need it and so does my TV.

Plugged it in and it worked !

I was worried seeing some of the reviews but the first time the connection went solid green then back to amber after WPS link. So I moved it closer to the router the same thing happened but within 1 minutes it went back to solid green and the signal strength went back on to 3 green. Went to the edge of my home and full power and great speed. Maybe helped that my router is also DLINK. Still early but it works great.

Nope won't connect

I have a DLink Di-628 Router so I bought this D-Link AC 1200. But this AC 1200 Range Extender will simply not connect. It is right beside the router but never makes the connection. The green light flashes but never stops flashing that it is connected. So it is going back to Best Buy to join the other AC1200's on the shelf. I usually read the Best Buy reviews right in the store before I buy something but this time the sales person was helping me and assured me this was the best solution. Next time I will read the reviews.

Not a fan

This product was not easy to set up. I tried for an hour finally downloaded the app and the wizard set it up. Moved to a green friendly area and we were up an running for a couple of days long enough to have the family set it up on all the devices. Now we see more orange than green. Wifi is very spotty. This one is going back and I will try something else.

Won't connect

Works briefly then disconnects. Constant flashing orange light. Research tells me I need to flash the firmware? Should be plug/play. Returning for something else.

Difficult to set up and signal is weak

The WPS function on the unit I bought was not working at all and it could not connect with the Dlink router one feet away no matter how many times I tried. I had to connect it with the router using web browser and it was pretty easy with the setup wizard. However, the signal was weak unless it was placed very close to the router so the range is limited. The speed test showed the download speed was only 1/3 of router speed although the upload speed was similar when placed two floors up from the router.
