Reviews around use (5.00 of 5)

  • Netgear support is phenomenal!BTW - using the NETGEAR WiFi Range Extender EX2800 right now in my garage!

  • The use of this extender required work that went beyond my ability
  • It's so much easier using a range extender like this than trying to set up an access point to bridge Wifi connections

  • Good quality and durable manufacturing will not let you down.

tech support

Reviews around tech support (5.00 of 5)

  • After spending two hours trying myself, I called then netgear tech support line.
  • I got, "no internet connection", and "no IP address" error messages, and after waiting for an hour for tech support to call me back, I gave up
  • I don't care if this is the best extender in the world, DO NOT PROMOTE FREE TECH SUPPORT FOR 90 DAYS.
  • My idea of tech support is that they want to have your item fully optimized which is usually dependent on other equipment.

device

Reviews around device (4.58 of 5)

  • This device works well to extend the wifi range of your router for areas in your property that has spotty wifi signal
  • I like this device because it allows you to connect to both!
  • and then other times to create errors in setup to see how well the device recovered from the error such as a lost password
  • I'm sure for most people this is a great device, but not if one has FIOS internet and TV.
  • I have had an issue here and there with dropping signal, but it's very rare (and could be a device issue rather than an issue with the product).

setup

Reviews around setup (4.08 of 5)

  • Overall, setup was pretty easy, and the extender is doing its job well
  • but most importantly, you don’t have to be tech savvy to complete proper setup...which is great, because I struggle to work a smart TV remote, and I was still able to set this up quickly and correctly
  • The setup was easy, just followed the directions and was up and running
  • Terrible terrible terrible, poorly described setup
  • The initial setup (to establish Network name, etc) by connecting wirelessly to the device is ABSURDLY slow, maybe 10-30 minutes per page of setup

zone

Reviews around zone (1.54 of 5)

  • If, like me, your dead zone sees relatively little use anyway, it's perfectly acceptable
  • and I can get great signal in what was once a dead zone
  • That room, the garage itself, and the patio are a major dead zone
  • I had a bit of a dead zone in my WIFI signal and needed to find an easy to use solution to this
  • Since installing this extender, we are now dead zone free when our devices are connected to it!
