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.

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.

Comments about Belkin F9K1106 Dual-Band Wireless Range Extender:

I'm self-employed and depend on the Internet. I had a router supplied by my Internet provider and a signal booster from a different company. Everything worked okay for a while, but then the Internet started quitting momentarily with no warning and no explanation. After spending about 18 hours in two weeks on the phone with three different companies' tech support teams in order to get my Internet running, I picked up a Belkin router and this range extender. The Belkin tech support team was fabulous, picking up the phone almost immediately, speaking great English, and walking me through the set-up in just a few moments. I have had no problems since then. Thank you, Belkin!

      Comments about Belkin F9K1106 Dual-Band Wireless Range Extender:

      bought this to exchange the range and boost the signal in my house. Was easy to set up and establish connection and has increased download speed when away from original router. Unfortunately due to the weather conditions in the Northeast US, I have not yet been able to fully test the range of the unit but intend to as soon as the snow melts and the grounds become less swampy. Modernistic design of unit allows it to fit easily in the family room area without looking like some technical monstrosity so it is aesthetically pleasing. In general very satisfied over the first 45 days.
