NETGEAR Nighthawk™ Wi-Fi® Range Extender

From Netgear: Get Complete Home Wireless Internet Coverage with WiFi Range Extenders
The layout of my house can be somewhat unforgiving when it comes to network performance. The wireless router is situated on the ground floor to ensure smooth video streaming on the television, while the desk we sit at to write bills and get other work done is located in a quiet room upstairs. Sometimes the wireless signal is weak and spotty at that all-important location. That's the sort of problem the NETGEAR EX7000/AC 1900 was designed to fix.
This desktop extender can amplify your wireless signal in areas that sit on the outer edges of your router's range. You'll get dual band Wi-Fi at speeds up to 1900 Mbps, so you can teleconference, stream video, and download software from any room in the house. A dual-core 1GHz processor keeps your data moving quickly, and three external antennas ensures wide coverage in previously underserved areas of the house.

I had to get on the phone with tech support (because my computer is older than I realized!) and they were very helpful and solved the problem, and this booster has solved my problem! Wish I'd done it six months ago!
Easy to setup as extender for our Netgear A1900 router. Works great and stable connection.
THE THAT I ORDERED FROM YOUR COMPANY IS WORKING REAL GREAT IT WAS EASY TO SET UP, AND AFTER GETTING IT UP I HAD NO PROBLEM WITH IT. I'M ENJOYING IT I SHOULD HAVE ORDER THIS NETGEAR NIGHTHAWK WI-FI RANGE EXTENDER SOON.
Pros: THIS IS ONE OF THE NETGEAR BEST ONE THAT I HAVE FOUND THAT DO WHAT IT SAID IT WILL DO IT IS EASY TO SET UP.
This product did the job 100%. If you should need a range extender this is a very good one to buy!
A definite improvement over my 4 year old extender. Decent range, easy setup, hard disk in USB 3 port instantly accessible on all my computers. The bit rate was much higher than my old extender, probably due to faster processor. Antennas don't easily stay in position. I like the phone app for signal strength.
Pros: Decent range easy setup Bit rate was much higher than my old extender hard disk in USB 3 port instantly accessible on all my computers
Cons: Antennas don't easily stay in position
Very excellent product. Solved my problem with very weak wifi signal. Very pleased that I bought it
