I bought the Cisco Linksys RE1000 at my local Staples retail store to strengthen the signal between my wifi transmitter upstairs and a Mac desktop in the basement. My combo router/wifi device, available only from my ISP, seems to be nearing the end of its useful life, unable to overcome interference from appliances etc. Right next to my router, throughput was 22 Mbps but in the basement only 0.3 - and it would work only when I turned off my dehumidifier. After easy install of RE1000 between the Mac and the router, I am getting download speeds of 10 Mbps, a vast improvement. I plan to run Ethernet (eventually) but for a quick, temporary fix I recommend this. My advice is to give this a try and if it doesn't work in your setting, just take it back to Staples within the 14-day return period. If you read reviews on CNET etc., you will notice that people who know what they are talking about (CNET reviewers) give the RE1000 a much higher rating than people who don't (consumers). I went with the pros and I am glad I did.

Barely useful

It worked fine within 20 feet of the wireless signal. But when I moved it another 20 feet to where the signal needed to be, it couldn't be found by our wireless router. ...Read complete review

It worked fine within 20 feet of the wireless signal. But when I moved it another 20 feet to where the signal needed to be, it couldn't be found by our wireless router. I ended up taking it back for a refund. I bought a TP-Link TL-WR710N instead. Plugged in a spare cable and it worked perfectly. My recommendation is that if you can get a cable to your space, buy the TP-Link instead. I now have maximum signal strength in my back room to run my wireless devices.

Solved a problem for me

Comments about Linksys RE1000 Wireless-N Range Extender/Bridge:

I had a problem despite having an 802.11ac Wi-Fi router that covers the whole house. The Wi-Fi signal in the kitchen was only half that of the rest of the house. The reason was a utility room with a forced-air furnace, duct work, and metal shelving that sits between the Wi-Fi router and the kitchen. The Linksys N300 Wi-Fi extender model RE1000 provided a 2.4ghz only solution .

Easily setup the RE1000 once placed in the kitchen boosted the signal from 50% to a full 5-bar strength.

Great wifi extender for home wireless

Comments about Linksys RE1000 Wireless-N Range Extender/Bridge:

I have used Linksys routers for years and always been very happy. Recently, I noticed a few wireless dead zones in my home that were a long distance plus had walls/floors interfering. In an effort to increase the signal in my home, I purchased the Linksys RE1000 to extend the range and it worked exactly as advertised. Setup of the extender was quick and easy. Out of the box and installed (extending my wifi signal) within 5 minutes. The extender has worked flawlessly for a few weeks now and I have outstanding coverage throughout my home. I would highly recommend this extender to anyone.

Comments about Linksys RE1000 Wireless-N Range Extender/Bridge:

My friend has always weak signal in her house, so this time I did something about it. It worked ok, I wonder if a more expensive one would have worked better.

great range extender

Comments about Linksys RE1000 Wireless-N Range Extender/Bridge:

Bought the range extender and followed the instructions. This was one of the easiest installs that I've done in a long time. I have a large home and two rooms had no wifi connection. Once I installed the Linksys RE1000 Wireless-N Range Extender - voila! I now have WiFi in those two rooms and can use my computer as well as my iPad. Good investment.
