Great Range Extender

I had my doubts about this product, but I really needed an extender so I bought this Netgear product. What can I say. This product works great and is easy to install. The AC1900 outputs a strong signal, but the result depends on the quality of the original signal from the base router. I connected the extender in an upper floor room with 70% signal and it gave me a good wifi signal 70 feet away across the backyard.

  • from Prince Albert, SK

excellent signal output if set up correctly!

I am about to purchase a third AC-1900 for install in a large church setting. We needed one for each hallway and this thing extended signal across a full sized gym and through two concrete block walls! Very happy with the ease of setup and the power of the output.

Is it better

Is it better than the Rogers modem

Just installed netgear nighthawk 1900

I have poor outdoor wifi. My router is upstairs on the 3rd floor in the front of the house, and when I'm out back there is no signal. I installed the netgear nighthawk 1900 and wow, I can now reach to the other side of my yard. I placed the nighthawk on my main level and it broadcasts anywhere outside now. I'm using my iPad on the extender now to Write this review.

Terrible - don't waste your money

It worked for about a year and then stopped functioning. No warranty, no customer service agents to talk to without paying. Skip it - there are better products out there.

  • from Montreal

Worth every $

Great Product - NOT using it as an extender -- but as an access point -. A bit tricky to set up. Customer service not very helpful but maybe depends on the agent. VERY good unit - Works well

Re: EX7300

Purchased an EX7300 which was supposed to be the latest and greatest..well..guess what..I don't want to say any bad words here in the public I will let your imagination fill them in. An outhouse comes to mind.

Horrid Device

Got the extender home and hooked it up easily enough and worked ok. Ok meaning only a little better than the signal with ought the extender, no where near what I expected it to be but better so we kept using it. well now its the next day and the thing doesn't work hardly at all, the second day there is almost no good signal and is working no better than the extender I bought 3 or more years ago and for less than half the price. To top it all off I can no longer connect to the extender with my computer to try to fix it. Extremely unimpressed with this products service and quality and would recommend anyone considering this device to look at something else.

Speed Dropped

I use Bell with Static/Fixed IP address. The speed form Router is 250M Up/Down max and actual speed ranges from 250M to around 130M. My IT man set this AC 1900 for me. With this AC 1900, my speed dropped to around 30M. I ended up not plugging it in for faster speed for closer range. Unless I need to use it in a longer range or unless there is a way to increase speed. Think I can use two Login names. If my original Router can reach, I use the original one. If it is out of range, then I would expect using the AC 1900 with the speed drop to 30M. PS. Set up time was not long. Say just around 10 - 15 min.

Great product!

I've purchased this Range Extender after reading lots of reviews. The device is being used as a Wi-Fi Range booster. Speed and coverage are both great!

NetGear AC 1900 wi fi extender

I am very happy with this product. It was easy to set up and now I can have wifi in rooms that were dead zones. There are more expensive ones out there but this one did the job for me.

  • from Richmond Hill, ON

Worth your money

Got it today, set up was easy only took a minute. We have the router on first floor at the back of the house, and the two bedrooms in the front of the house on the second floor having signals but sometime very slow before we install the extender. The product description said it would be 3x faster, but I felt its much faster than 3x and getting on my web instantly now without any waiting time. My son just love it. Great product!

  • from Toronto, ON

Great performance

Purchased this unit after reading lots of reviews. The device is being used as an Access Point instead of WiFi repeater. Speed and coverage are both great!

  • from Toronto, ON

Perfect & easy to install

Works very well.

  • from Kingston, ON

great RANGE

I now have strong coverage throughout my entire house and studio which is a separate building at the back of my property.

  • from Ontario

Wicked range

A buddy of mine had this and swore by it. Since he is a tech guy I purchased one as well. My router in in the basement and the signal upstairs was fair at best. Once this was connected and linked, (which was really easy by the way), my signal through my entire main floor now is full bar everywhere. My daughter is ecstatic as she can even go outside to the end of the driveway and still have a good wifi signal on her iPod!!! Highly recommend this product.

Worth every penny!

OMG! Had I known the joy and freedom I would have installed this a long time ago. I've been battling with my ISP (who shall not be named!) for months and months to no avail. Connection constantly dropped and speeds supposedly fastest available as slow as molasses, and no WiFi on second floor or on porch. Having two young adults in the house there was a lot of complaining and anger over download speeds, online gaming cutting off and excessive and non-stop buffering of streaming services. After FOUR technician visits and no improvement, I was ready to pull the plug and throw in the towel. Started researching online... The NETGEAR Nighthawk AC1900 Wi-Fi Range Extender (EX7000) was highly recommended. After almost one month of heavy use I can say... Easy to install... and it's been complete bliss ever since. What a relief! No more problems! I can even go outside to the back of the yard, over 120 feet and still stay connected! I can finally enjoy WiFi and work from the back deck. I am totally satisfied with this product... and no one paid me for this review!

Wow five stars

Setup is fast and it works really well

  • from Red deer

Excellent purchase!!

Just bought this to extend wifi signal in my house which is 3600 sq/ft because of dead spot upstairs where signal would drop. Now I have perfect signal through out the house and outside so this product gets a 10/10 from me.

Good buy...

Paired with the Netgear AC 1750 (R6400) pushes AC wifi where I need it. For HD streaming I run essentially 3 x 5G channels, one from the Rogers Rocket modem, one from the R6400 which is then extended by the EX7000 with its own channel. The latest Rogers modem is only any use for the room it is located in. Don't expect to push content to adjacent rooms with the Rogers AC modem without buffing. With the set-up indicated, I have a 100% link rate tested and optimized using insider (inSSIDer across 3 floors and 4850 sq feet of home on three stories. I use the version listed of inSSIDer as it retains the ability to recommend the best/ least congested channels. The latest version does not do that in the free edition. Proof in the pudding...I get better WIFI in my neighbors yard across the street than he does :) Goodbye Wiireless N.

Incredible increase in signal

Best Buy's web page did not allow me to select the star rating on my IPad, but this is definitely worth 5 stars. Increase in signal from 3Mbps to 50Mbps in the far reaches of our house. In fact, I had to go 100ft away outside to see a significant degradation of signal.

  • from Fredericton, NB

Does what it says on the tin...

Bought this to swamp the house taking off from where the fibre op modem can no longer hope...2-3 bars in my deadish zones become full bars on both channels with this fact, all of the house (2500 sq ft and 1500 sg ft basement) now has full covereage. Maximising 80.11AC is the way to go if you stream throughout your home.

Great WIFI Extender!

Was ready to set up and really did give me exceptionally wide range! I can now get my WIFI around my acreage. is really very impressive.

AC1900 Nighthawk Extender

Great product, eliminated dead zones throughout the home.

A Powerhouse Extender

I was looking for a good extender after struggling for a over a year with an inexpensive extender that could only clone the main network name (SSID) causing major issues for our 8 connected devices. The old extender would drop every 5 minutes and need to be reconnected. Well, I got my new AC1900 Nighthawk home and after 10 minutes I had two unique SSIDs, one for 2.4GHz and one for 5GHz while the extender relayed data with the main network behind the scenes (you can still clone the original SSID for continuity if you want to). I can now safely say that this unit is a BEAST! Through a thick wall and down a 30 foot hallway the Nighthawk pulls and sends 45 of our 50mbit connection with ease. 5 days in and the Nighthawk has NEVER dropped a device or even dropped in performance. This may be overkill for my 600 sq. ft. apartment, but after a year of living in the dark ages I think I deserve it - This thing is the best. The companion app also helped me see exactly where signal was the best and how to position the 3 antennae on the unit. Highly recommended - make the change for yourself and stop struggling with entry level units.
