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 this device so I could obtain coverage on my deck which was lost when I had to purchase a new modem & router (although I purchased top of the line units, these did not give me the area coverage I had with my old setup). The extender hooked up to my secure router very easily and showed up on all our computers, Iphones and Ipad although in contrast to the installation brochure, there were now two selections (router name and extender name) showing up on all devices, you can select either one. It caused some major problems with my wifi printers. They will intermittently go "off line" not recognizing either my extender or modem which results in the inability to print out until you "reset" the router and most times it is necessary to disconnect the extender. We have a wifi enabled thermostat which will communicate with the router and send an email to you when the temperature falls above or below its setting which is necessary when we are away from home for a few days during the winter and cold weather seasons. The thermostat will constantly send "lost communication" emails when the extender is plugged into the Right now I have resigned myself to leave it totally unplugged from the wall or turned off and intend to use it only when I want to sit on the deck or when my husband wants to mow the lawn and listen to his radio show on his Iphone. At the cost of nearly $100, I would say this unit is too sophistocated to be worth the money when you have wireless printers and a wifi enabled thermostat but I guess it depends on your intended use and how badly you miss internet coverage when you are outside your home. Our home is 1300 sq ft (raised ranch) and another 1300 downstairs plus an attached 2 stall garage and we have coverage with our regular modem throughout the house. It's only when we are outside that we need this extender. The unit must be placed near the area where you need coverage, which is not where my printers are located so the feature of the usb port(s) is totally useless as those are located next to our modem and router. However, if I really needed to "turn my usb printer into a wifi enabled printer" I would just move the extender into my office, for the time I needed to utilize this printer. This feature may be useful in these situations but I have never tried it so can't make a comment. Overall it does the job I purchased it for so I guess I would "recommend it to a friend" but with reservations!!!

You know sometimes these items don't work the way you may want it to work but this range extender really works. I have a 6000 square foot home and it made a real difference.

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

I am enjoying a stronger and faster connection. Before I got the NetGear Extender, my Internet was dropping constantly. The dropping has cut down, and the drops I do experience are due to the poorly built gateway my Internet provider gave me. My provider has changed my equipment several times and it continued to drop the connection. The Netgear Extender has really helped improved my connection. I am able to stream movies without interruptions. The price was fair. The product is reliable. I am a satisfied.

Stealth strength

By Rob

from Hillsborough, NJ

Verified Buyer

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

Searched for a high-strength wall plug Dual Band range-extender and Netgear WN3500RP=100NAS was the best deal I found in its price range. Continually beseiged with low-signal strength, my router never yielded more than three bars due to a very remote location with a lot of interference. I now operate at full five bars and am a happy camper. The appearance is very low-key and sophisticated. The set-up was not too difficult for 'Always There' installer and was at full-strength within an hour and with very interesting and positive results. When connecting to internet, the system will report on screen that it is busy doing what it does - extending the range. I would recommend this to anyone without hesitation.
