I first bought an Apple Airport Express, but as my "base" router is NetGear (not Apple) the Airport Express didn't work. My fault. Says that clearly. Anyways, I returned the Airport (Staples was, of course, terrific about the exchange...no questions asked) and got this netgear thing. The setup was easy with my MacBook air. It is supposed to do it through WPS but that didn't work for me, so I did it "manually", which was no problem.
I am using this almost exclusively as an "AirPlay" adapter for a 1970's Sony receiver that I wanted to use my iphone to control remotely. One weird thing, and I'd say this is 80% "just" aesthetics, is that the power cord and the audio cord are on opposite sides of the NetGear Range Extender. when you use the direct plug method, this is not really an issue, but when you use the extension cord (so I can put the extender up on a shelf) it means I have wires sticking out, and I don't love that. Again, this is just for show.
In terms of performance, my iPhones drop the connection...a lot. This causes the speakers to pop, as if you pull a headphone plug out of the jack. Not great to hear, and probably bad for the speakers, though mine are old Sansui beasts that I got at a flea market. When it DOES work, which is MOST of the time, it sounds great and is really easy to use. This may be because my network is at capacity. We have a couple of phones, three or four computers, and a tablet on at any given time. Anyways, this basically gets the job done for what I need. I'd recommend this if you didn't go with the Apple Airport base station.

Purchased the product after reading the good reviews. I tried setting up after reading the instruction and following the step by step procedure. I spent over an hour before call tech support. After 20 minute wait I explained everything that I did and the person told me that he would send me to the right person. Another 15 minutes on hold another series of the same questions then the fun began. The tech support person had no idea how to help, they kept putting me on hold to consult with an advisor. Finally after 1.5 hours with this person they put me on hold and never came back. I know there are good reviews, I wish I could have been one but it is what it is. Good Luck!

Comments about NETGEAR Dual Band WiFi Range Extender, Wall-plug edition WN3500RP-100NAS:

It was much easier to install than I thought. I was unable to use my iPad once I left the room with my router. Now I can go anywhere in my house and my iPad picks up the wifi. Very happy with this product

Comments about NETGEAR Dual Band WiFi Range Extender, Wall-plug edition WN3500RP-100NAS:

I purchased the Netgear Dual Band Range Extender because I wanted to print documents to an old Okidata laser printer that I had and it did not have wireless network capabilities. I was able to hook this device up with ease and it works with my desktop and tablet, however I was not able to get it to work with my Microsoft Surface. But overall I'm very satisfied. It was cheaper to buy this than to buy a new laser color printer. I would highly recommend the Netgear Dualband Range Extender.

It fixed our problem

Comments about NETGEAR Dual Band WiFi Range Extender, Wall-plug edition WN3500RP-100NAS:

We have a 6000 sq ft home with only one place to put the internet w-ifi connection. On one end of the home. We receive our internet from a antenna and the best place for a good signal was on that end of the home. We needed a stronger wifi. The installation was ease. It sinked up nicely. May be because we had same brand wi-fi. Took about 10 or 15 mins. Now I have wi-fi in every part of my home.
