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.

Returning It

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

I was looking into getting a wifi range extender because my current router can't reach half of my house, and upgrading the router, Verizon Fios' solution to a problem caused by the inferior router that they force you to use, would be way too expensive. So I bought this wifi range extender at my local Staples. Setup seemed easy. Until I realized that it didn't work. Tried setting it up using my phone (which they say you can do, what they don't tell you is that there is no mobile site, you're looking at a site designed for a computer on a phone screen, you'd think a technology company would be a bit more on top of that.) When that didn't work I started over, attempting setup on my computer, that failed too. I tried again and again, a couple days later I reset it to factory defaults and tried one last time to set it up. I made it to the last step of the guided setup and failed AGAIN. I'm gonna hope the one I bought was defective because if they all work this well the entire product line belongs in a landfill.

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

Price was good but was unable to make a connection with the router. Tried switching routers but still couldn't get it to synch. Finally gave up and returned to the store. Instructions were not very good and not sure it works with most routers as they claim it would do. Looked at several reviews and I think many of them had similar problems. Don't recommend buying it.
