Easy to set up, and include onto your network. The extender adds additional networks to your original network with the _xt name added to it (I wish it would use the same name). The extender helps to get around a set of walls increasing my connection from 2 bars to 4 bars. The automatic firmware check that is built into the Network Extender reports that the extender is up to date with the latest firmware right out of the box. That sounds good, but it is wrong. If you use the out of the box firmware, the extender will go to sleep when all devices connected to it are asleep for 4 hours or more. The only way to wake it up is to unplug it and replug it in. Upgrade the firmware by going to the Belkin website and searching for it, and this problem is resolved. Now it remains connected all the time.

Looks promising on paper, and it is very easy to setup if you have a computer with Ethernet near your wireless router. Unfortunately, it does not stay connected and has to be restarted far too often to be considered normal reliable operation. I'd return it, but my time is worth more than the value of the device.

The longest it has stayed connected is about 5 days. If that is normal operation, Belkin and I have different definitions of what is normal.

Bought it to replace a wireless Ethernet access point, and extend coverage downstairs for the TV and and my wife's portable office devices. The router and cable modem are upstairs.

It worked best when setting it up 3 feet from the Belkin N+ wireless router. Not much of a range extender when only 3 feet away from the router. I've got an old wireless access point that is hooked to the last Ethernet cable to the router in the house. It is the access point I wanted to replace with this Belkin range extender. Sadly that old wired up access point does a better job than this dual band range extender. I can't trust the Belkin range extender, and can't replace the old access point.

It would probably be better in a small single story apartment. Not that great in a larger home.

To be fair, it could work better with a new dual band router, but I'm not being fair. I'm being honest about how it works in my current configuration. Your mileage may vary.

Piece of Junk

Comments about Belkin F9K1106 Dual-Band Wireless Range Extender:

I bought it so my internet would be faster. As it turned out the net was slower by 50% when i used this piece of junk. Customer Service was very difficult to understand and all they wanted to do was sell me something.

Great system

Comments about Belkin F9K1106 Dual-Band Wireless Range Extender:

The Belkin Dual-Band Wireless Range Extender is a great system. Using the included CD, setup took less than 5 minutes from the time I put the CD in my laptop. I live in a large old farm house and wireless coverage from my router would only give me GOOD reception, 3 bars, at the far end of my house. The Belkin Range Extender improved it to EXCELLENT, full bars.
Download times ten times better.

Comments about Belkin F9K1106 Dual-Band Wireless Range Extender:

My house seemed to be too large for the signal to get from the router location to my computer/iPad. I was constantly getting the "No Signal" message. I went to Staples to get a new router, but was pleasantly surprised to find there was such a thing as an "extender" available. The sales person at Staples understood my problem right away and suggested the "extender" since the Belkin router was working perfectly. We installed it according to the instructions enclosed with the product and I am no longer getting the "No Signal" message. Thanks, Belkin!!

Comments about Belkin F9K1106 Dual-Band Wireless Range Extender:

spent time setting it up and moving both it and the router around the house. never saw any improvement in band width in the 2nd floor bedrrom which is 10 ft away from master where I'm getting great reception. not sure if this unit is a dud or if it's the product itself. but back it goes tomorrow. too bad.
