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.

I needed to add a security camera system to my wifi, and this worked great with my Apple Time Machine. One button set up and after a few minutes it was up and running. Still works great.

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

I first tried the unit at my home out in the country. With the extender where I had only been able to recieve the signal in the room where the router was located and 2 close rooms I was able to recieve a very good signal in all of the home and patio. That was recieving the signal through 5 walls with one being the outside wall with double wood siding. I then sent the unit with my son out of the country to our dive shop office where it is working very well on boosting the signal from the home to the dive shop office, beach area, and cantina area. very pleased with the unit

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

        This is the easiest unit that I have ever set up.. I just plugged it to power in the room with the main computer and turned it on.. The signal in another room went from 1 bar to 2. I moved it to a loser room and the signal went from 2 bars to 3 bars.. Now I can watch Netflix without it stoping ever few minutes.. The wireles printer wil work from my iPad now and the iPad is performing better now. Now I don't have to be in any special place in the room to use th computer and that is a relief.

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

        I used this to improve the signal strength in a rv park wireless system. As I did not have access to the router I had to use a pc to set up. Any one with a tablet would have problems setting up unless you could get access to the pc.

        Excelent sig strength with unit I'm now able to get full strength throuth out the metal rv and even in the yard on the opposit side of the orignating router.
