Failed after 2 weeks of use. Terrible support. Worked fine for two weeks as a WiFi bridge to two printers connected to its ethernet ports. Then it would no longer connect or allow a connection, multiple factory resets and calls to customer service and the unit is totally bricked. Can't seem to get Linksys to help in any meaningful way other than to ship them the unit and then they will repair/replace at their discretion. Past my return window with Amazon by two days as it sat here for a week before I installed it and then I spent a week trying to get help and didn't notice my return window lapsing. Had to buy a different unit to get up and running and not sure if it's worth my time and cost to ship the unit off to get a refurbished one back that I could keep as a spare or try to sell.Pros: Worked great while it worked.Cons: Bricked itself after two weeks in service. While it works as a bridge, it does not allow for the option of disabling its extender mode, minor issue. 1Could not get it to connect to my existing Linksys router Believe the negative reviews. It will not connect to my existing Linksys router even when sitting within 10 inches of it after dozens of tries, resets, etc. Also, one of the antennas was broke out of the box which was factory sealed (or appeared to be) which has happened to me before on a Linksys product. While I'm willing to go with it if it works, since it doesn't I'm returning and will seek out something else.Note that I'm not a novice at setting these up and don't have expectations of plug and play, but an hour of futzing and getting zero progress is not acceptable for a product of this price point and target audience. Even my existing Linksys router gave me problems on set up, but was not like this and, once up, has worked flawlessly and well so I believe I've given this item as much of a chance as is deserved. 1Overall, I Am a Big Fan of Cisco/Linksys WiFi/Router Products, But I Could Not Get this Device to Remember Settings, etc. I generally like Cisco and Linksys Wifi, router and backbone products, but, as a number of other reviewers have noted, this product seems to be an exception. I purchased it to extend the range, in one particular direction at my home and yard, of the WiFi signal from my Linksys WRT54GL Wi-Fi Wireless-G Broadband Router, and frankly, as other reviewers have also noted, I was never even able to complete setup.Each time that I thought that I had completed setup with the extender sitting near my main PC and main router, once I moved it more than a few feet and powered it up again, I discovered that it had lost all settings, including WiFi network name and router password, and could not even connect with my WiFi network, and the device's presence (that is, its unique network name) could not be sensed or found by any of my WiFi devices.Tech Support was not able to help, and seemed resigned to the fact that in a certain percentage of cases, these WiFi range extenders simply will not work due to failure to remember the information entered during setup.So, I am still a fan, by and large, of Cisco / Linksys products, and I still love my WRT54GL Wireless Router, but I have been forced to give up on this device. I am in the process of returning it to Amazon.BTW, I am a multi-disciplinary consulting and research scientist/engineer, have a very strong background in electronics/electrical engineering, and have been involved in a hands-on way in the microcomputer world since its earliest days in the late 1970s. So it is not like I am a newbie to tech stuff, and rather, quite the opposite. 1Signal is great one minute I have not been impressed with this. I can be sitting right next to it and it does not come up as available. Signal is great one minute, then nothing the next. I am constantly resetting it and still nothing. Don't waste your money. 1Fast install, strong signal, no loss of speed from the router. Terrible instructions. Just installed the high-gain version of this range extender and it took, literally, 5 minutes. There have been a lot of complaints about the arcane set up and I have to agree that the "quick start" instructions are absolutely horrible. I was nervous about installing the device, but found a very simple way to do it:1. Connect the antennas2. Plug in the extender in your desired location. The instructions suggest somewhere halfway between the router and the dead area.3. Wait for the flashing light on the top of the extender to glow steady.4. Go to your computer or laptop (or tablet, phone, etc.I did it on my computer) and scan for wi-fi networks. (This is the step they left out of the instructions). In the list of available networks, you should see: Linksys Extender Setup - XXX (where XXX is the last 3 digits of the range extender's MAC address. The MAC address is pretty much irrelevant in the setup. Don't worry about it). Click to connect to Linksys Extender Setup.5. Once your device tells you that you are connected, open a browser or if you have one already open, refresh the page. The range extender setup screen should appear. If it doesn't, connect to http://extender.linsys.com6. The setup is pretty trivial. You will either accept the default network names of the 2.4 and 5.0 Mhz bands or change them to something that makes sense to you (just make each name different and different from your router names--the defaults are probably fine).7. Enter a password for each of the bands. I used the same password as my router.8. Enter a password for the admin login. Just pick something that you will remember because you will rarely go in there and anything fancy is easily forgotten.9. Click NEXT (or whatever the prompt is at the bottom of the screen). The page will tell you your extender is set up and it will display the network names for the 2.4 and 5.0 GHz bands along with the passwords you set up, plus the administrative password. I printed that page and put in my reference book that I keep for all my devices.After the extender was set up, I tested the speed and it gets the same speed as my router. And, by the way, the Linksys Range Extender is extending the range of my Amped Wireless router. They seem to be fully compatible. The extender sits one floor below the area that was previously marginal and is very strong. My previous extender, an old Amped Wireless SR150 only got 1/3 the router speed. This is a huge improvement.I have to admit the setup instructions made me nervous since some of the very trivial, simple steps were not written clearly. Whoever wrote it used a lot of IT shorthand to describe the steps. For those of us who have only modest skills, I can see where it's confusing. 4WiFi Coverage for Your Entire McMansion I live in a 4,200 square foot McMansion that has a large patio out back. My main router has to be located in my front study, which means my home theater, garage, back upstairs bedroom, and back patio have been without WiFi coverage for the past 6 years. I purchased this extender hoping to extend coverage to those areas, and it worked beautifully. Setup was very easy. I used the Spot Finder feature to determine that placing the extender 10 feet in the air in my main living area (on top of our very tall entertainment armoire) is the best location for reaching the target areas. Then, I used WiFi Analyzer on my Droid phone to check the signals all over the house to verify coverage. Once everything was set to my liking, I clicked the "Make the Same as Router" boxes to make the SSIDs the same, and all of my devices seamlessly switch back and forth between the extender and the main router as I walk around the house. Signal strength has improved between 10 and 20 dBm in the target areas, and I finally have WiFi everywhere. I am very pleased with this purchase. 5easy set up, works incredible in just minutes -literally plugged it in, waited till the light turned solid, connected to my computer, started Chrome browser, it initiated set up, put in my password - boom, done. total set up time maybe 3 mins.-went from getting between 10-50mbps speed with just my router to now getting 140-160mbps speed (my router puts out 150mbps speed but is a distance away, through many walls-hence this extender)-its surprisingly small, takes up very little space. 5BUY THE HIGH GAIN MODEL, not the base standard version. There are 2 versions of this unit, one HG (high gain) with extended longer antennas, and the base unit with short antennas.I own both units.The short antenna unit is worthless, it is about 25 feet away and upstairs from the base wireless router and it can't even pick up the signal to transmit past 2 walls.I bought the HG long antenna unit and have it placed OUTDOORS in a plastic container to protect from rain (temporary use) and holes cutout for the antennas exposed. This HG unit transmits a strong enough signal while OUTDOORS about 50 feet to our POOL HOUSE where I have webcams in the front and rear rooms, and it is (barely) enough for the back room webcam's required signal strength - so the HG works.The short antenna unit is on the second floor of our house and barely can transmit from the inside of the house, through about 2 walls to an outside wifi camera, and drops connections.Why a company shortchanges itself and sells 2 models of the same base unit with different antennas makes me wonder what they are thinking.It's like selling the same Mercedes, one with 12 inch wheels the other with 19 inch wheels. WHY? Just do the best product, not some substandard version. 3... and I have to say this item is a waste of money I am an IT professional with 20 yrs industry experience and I have to say this item is a waste of money. I always like to be fair so I will say one good thing about the RE6500. Setup was very easy and I believe even a non-technical person will have it working within 20 minutes.Now for the bad news.I live in a rural area and my internet connection is via Sprint hotspot. My house is a rancher and the hotspot stays in the office at one end of the house. While in that room I average 16mbps download speeds. If I go to the other side of the house (approx 60 feet) I get 10-13mbps. If I go out on the back deck in the summertime I drop down to 6-8mbps. So I purchased the Linksys range extender in hopes it could extend my Sprint wireless and maintain the same internet speeds as I experience when in the same end of the house as my Sprint hotspot.To my disappointment, after trying many different locations and antenna positions the internet speeds were consistently 1/3 the speed I get if I connect to my Sprint hotspot (bypassing the RE6500). I performed all of the troubleshooting steps which include verifying the RE6500 LED was solid white indicating a good connection to my Sprint hotspot. There's also a site survey and positioning wizard built into the device which aides in placement within the location. Again, i verified that the device is positioned "just right" according to the Linksys wizard.I am returning my Linksys RE6500 and will search for a better product. 2Has significant wifi speed loss I bought this extender due to a dead spot in my daughter's bedroom and a few parts of my basement. This extender fills in admirably but only provides about 1/4 of my wifi speed even after having used the wifi analyzer to find the "optimal" location.I don't want to give off the impression that the speed is extremely low but with my 200mb/s speed I am only getting a max wifi speed of 58mb/s when using speed test. And before anyone asks, I'm using the 5ghz channel on the router and still getting those speeds.Pro:- Decent wifi pass through speed- Durable. I've had this thing for over a year and have had 0 issues- Easy Set up. The wizard takes you through set up in a blast and helps you find the optimal location for the extender.- Useful indicator light. Most indicator lights in my experience are close to useless or are not giving you clear information. This extender has 1 indicator light and if it is red, you need to move it to a better location or check the configuration, if it is white then everything is good to go.Con:- Wifi speed may not be suitable at lower wifi speeds (especially at xfinity's 25mbs or less tier where pass through speeds will be insufficient for consistent streaming)- No automatic firmware updates. This may not seem like a major deal to most users but the firmware on the extender has to be manually updated from the configuration screen. This means imporatant updates, including those that cover security flaws, are not given any type of automatic patch or even a notification that they are needed. 3
