Once Configured It Does Work Well
Comments about NETGEAR WN1000RP-100NAS - 802.11 b/g/n Universal WiFi Booster for Mobile:
After a fair struggle trying to get the Extender to communicate with my Router, the product did perform. I eventually had to call NetGear tech support and in fairness, they were excellent in walking me through the install. The product is advertised as Plug and Play re connecting to existing router; however, in my case it did not work. It just sat there plugged into the outlet in the wall. I should emphasize that my browser is Firefox, not Explorer. The Extender was not happy with Firefox and simply would not connect to the web. It may have had something to do with firewalls in Firefox, suffice it to say it was a frustrating experience and perhaps NetGear should think about adding the issue of Firefox in their FAQ section. After switching to Explorer, web access was available and with the help of NetGear tech support they were able to walk me through the manual install/configuration. In my specific situation, there is an area in my home where the wireless signal was very low and caused continual drops. Once installed I had 5 bar strength signal and the product does seem to be working well. I even noted in another area of my home that my speed increased for another laptop that had searched out the device and was using it also. The device is very small so it takes up minimal space. So in conclusion, other than the difficulty in initial installation (isn't that always the way with these products that are advertised Plug 'n Play) of the product, I would say that I am pleased and the price on Staples for product is very competitive compared to other vendors.
