If you are in our living room and kitchen, then the WiFi is great. However when you venture upstairs, the bedrooms or garage area, the signal weakens and sometimes drop out.
I didn't pay much mind to it, since I'm usually in the living room or the kitchen most of the times.
Especially during the winter months, it's cold and we are mostly inside bundled together.
But during the Spring, Summer and Fall months, it's all about being outside, getting as much sun and exercise as possible. After or before homework, I love when the kids go outside to play for a good amount of time. They don't always want to play in the backyard where I can keep an eye on them as I work, read or do my studies. So when they go out front to play I love (have to) to be out there watching them, making sure they are safe in the yard or riding their bicycles on the roadways.
Sometimes I love being able to use my laptop or phone to do my online studies or reading during these times, if I'm not out playing with them.
This is where the NetGear WiFi Range Extender comes in. When it first arrived, it was just at the holidays. I had my husband set it up and because family was coming over for visits, it was going to have to prove it's mettle.
Now I can be lounging in my driveway and still have internet! And if I have a friend visiting, they can hook up to the guest center also!
The bedroom with the range works better than the bedrooms without. Maybe it's the walls or something else I do not understand, but we are getting good enough signal and that's what matters.
I think what I need right now is a really great modem that will bring the strength of signal up in all the rooms of our home.
But I can say that the NetGear WiFi Range Extender really does do a great job of extending my WiFi signal.
I'm really glad it works out because I was really wondering if it would do the job.
Did I really have to ask my husband to set it up? Nope. All you have to do is plug it in and go! You can also select which band you wish to use.
And now I am definitely a fan of NetGear products!
