Answer:
I didn't receive for free. I wrote a review and gave it five stars. It does exactly what I wanted to get coverage to a TV with a FireStick in the opposite corner of my house from my router (that is also on a separate floor). I went from 10/10 speed (with occasional full loss of signal) in the dead spot to about 45/2… see more I didn't receive for free. I wrote a review and gave it five stars.

Answer:
It creates a new SSID for you to connect to. End devices don't move between APs by default when moving around the house. So, if you set it to the same SSID, you may have poor connection speed as your device is still connected to the farther AP.
With two different SSIDs, you can pick the one with better signal to connect to.

Answer:
Yes, you can use two of these. You'll just have an additional SSID to connect to. If you daisy chain them (iPhone > Extender > Extender > AP), you will get reduced speed as the middle extender will have to repeat everything from the end point back to the AP. If they're both connected directly to your AP/Router, you'll … see more Yes, you can use two of these. You'll just have an additional SSID to connect to.

If they're both connected directly to your AP/Router, you'll be fine though. see less Yes, you can use two of these. You'll just have an additional SSID to connect to.

Answer:
If you have an Internet installation (cable or Dish) in one apartment that is connected to a wi-fi router, you would be able to set up and pair the extender in the apartment with the wi-fi router, then plug the extender in an outlet in the other apartment. The extender network is protected with a password so only those… see more If you have an Internet installation (cable or Dish) in one apartment that is connected to a wi-fi router, you would be able to set up and pair the extender in the apartment with the wi-fi router, then plug the extender in an outlet in the other apartment.

Answer:
6150 supports gigabit speeds if I'm reading the description correctly, while 6120 only supports up to 100 Mbps.

Answer:
No. But it can be if your ability to extend diminishes quickly from the router due to walls, floors, tall furniture; etc. That's where wiring to the Extender (set to Access Point mode) helps

Answer:
This extender can be configured to relay dual 2.4GHz and 5GHz signal as long as the router/access point to which it is connected supports that. If the router/access point does not support 5GHz, then of course the extender cannot work on the frequency either.

Answer:
Yes, you can use a PS4, XBOX One, or other console with this extender! The performance will depend quite a bit on several factors, such as your main router, distances covered, and so on.
