I have a home office network setup. Main router is an Apple Airport Extreme Base Station (AEBS), and we have ~16 wireless devices connected. The WN2000RPT is very easy to setup. My main concern was whether this would work with an AEBS, and it does, seamless.

As per instructions it asks you to place your computer well out of range of your current wireless signal and the WN2000RPT midway between the router and computer.
Just a tip: It is not necessary to do this, you can configure the unit in the same room as your wireless router, provided you're comfortable deleting your current wireless setting from your computer and setting it up again once the WN2000 is configured. By deleting the home wireless setup on your computer, the computer will not connect to your home network while the WN 2000 is rebooting.

I don't run any security on my network, only MAC address filtering. So if you have MAC address filtering you'll have to include the MAC address of the WN2000 in the list on your router. MAC address is on the bottom or back of the unit. Since the WN2000RPT setups a new wireless signal, to enable the MAC address filtering on the WN2000RPT you'll have to locate, from your router, the IP address of the WN2000RPT, type in that IP address in Chrome or any browser, and then setup the mac address filtering. It may take time, but it is very straight forward. I just had to reset my WN2000RPT to factory settings once because I had made a mistake in my setup.

Once or twice the wireless light on the WN2000RPT has gone red, indicating a weak connection, I just turn it off and turn it back on.

bought this to extend my wireless network from my corner-bedroom office. used the wizard to set up the network. the trick is to allow some time between connecting the extender to my wireless router, and attempting to connect from my laptop/ipad to the extender. seems to take 5-10 minutes for the connection to become established. if you try to connect too soon it makes you restart the extender-to-router step again. once established, the connection works well and provides good coverage. the connection seems to break every few days or so, and it doesn't automatically correct itself so that you have to go through the setup process again. wouldn't recommend using the extender for any dedicated devices such as a set top box or gaming console for the foregoing reason. i haven't had any experience with other extenders so i can't say if this is a common deficiency

with the above qualifications, i marginally would recommend this device.

A Welcome Addition

Comments about NETGEAR N300 WiFi Range Extender Desktop Version with 4-Ports WN2000RPT:

When I moved into an older 2-story home, I noticed that I was rarely able to receive the wifi signal on my cell phone in certain rooms in the house. This made checking social media and watching videos terrible inconvenient. I knew I needed a wifi signal extender, but did not know how to choose the right one. The Sales Associate at my local Staples store was very knowledgable and even offered his business card should I have any problem installing the device. The device was reasonably priced (it was on sale!), easy to install and, after 2 weeks, I have had no major problems. I am very happy with my purchase.

      Looked easy to setup but then it virtually does not work at all. When you try to get on website to change settings for netgear, it does not exist!
