WiFi Coverage for Your Entire McMansion
Reviewed in the United States on October 6, 2016
I live in a 4,200 square foot McMansion that has a large patio out back. My main router has to be located in my front study, which means my home theater, garage, back upstairs bedroom, and back patio have been without WiFi coverage for the past 6 years. I purchased this extender hoping to extend coverage to those areas, and it worked beautifully. Setup was very easy. I used the Spot Finder feature to determine that placing the extender 10 feet in the air in my main living area (on top of our very tall entertainment armoire) is the best location for reaching the target areas. Then, I used WiFi Analyzer on my Droid phone to check the signals all over the house to verify coverage. Once everything was set to my liking, I clicked the "Make the Same as Router" boxes to make the SSIDs the same, and all of my devices seamlessly switch back and forth between the extender and the main router as I walk around the house. Signal strength has improved between 10 and 20 dBm in the target areas, and I finally have WiFi everywhere. I am very pleased with this purchase.
