  • powerful but not so easy to set up
    Reviewed by JonK - January 24, 2021

    I found this powerful wifi system by consulting with the reliable NY Times website "the Wirecutter." They said it was a great (but somewhat expensive) system that will bring wifi throughout a large house AND that it was easier to set up than other complex systems. Easier, yes. Easy, no. I'm pretty good at this sort of thing and after 1 and 1/2 hours I did get it to work (and it works a week later without a single problem in all that time). The unit comes with a Quick Set up guide which is somewhat deceptive. I would recommend the system but I would counsel a good deal more patience that the guide indicates. Just sit and wait until the units recognize the system, your phone (you setup through a cell phone app) and each other. Since I thought it would happen quickly I thought I had made a mistake = lots of lost time and frustration. Just wait and it will work.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
