We've had this extender for about 3 weeks now. We wanted to get a stronger signal from the router in my office to the great room and that side of the house. The signal has about 85 feet to travel going outside across the deck and back in again, going through several walls in the process. Before installing the extender in the great room, the strength of the signal from the router was very weak, -60 dBm (2.4g) and -67 dBm (5g); the speed of the signal was 21.5 mbps down and 6.6 mbps up (2.4g) and 40.4 mbps down and 4.96 mbps up (5g). With the extender, the strength of the signal has improved to -30 (2.4g) and -33 (5g), extremely strong, and the speed is consistently around 31 mbps down and 24.4 mbps up (2.4g) and 80 mbps both up and down (5g). A huge gain for the signal in both strength and speed for that side of the house! The signal and speeds from the extender for both bands are very stable. We're very pleased with this unit and have ordered another.
One point I might add is that all the pictures show the 2 antennae with both straight up. We get the best performance when we have one at about 45 degrees and the other about 90 degrees, so don't hesitate to move those and try different angles.
