Wireless router signal booster
The Netgear Universal WN3000RP Wi-Fi Range Extender was very easy to setup and fixed the weak wireless signal problem immediately.I ordered this new extender from Amazon because my wireless signal is too weak when I move into my room or Kitchen, Just plug-in into the wall socket and do a 10 minutes configuration you are good to go.

Refurbish version is much cheaper
The installation is pretty much straight forward, just plugged into the wall outlet and pressed the WIFI protected setup button on the right side for about 2 minutes, It will automatically connected to any router that you configured as wireless router in my case it is Linksys WRT160N v2 router. After 2 minutes you can sit back and enjoy the new improved wireless signal. This device support both 110V and 240V AC supply and it does not take out too much space (see the picture).

If you have problem with the connectivity I suggest you to check the end router setting encryption, I don’t know why this thing messed up when I change my router encryption method.It took me a while to figure it out. I must change the Netgear wireless extender setting so it must match with the router setting. Any mismatch such as 64bit to 128bit will cause the wireless signal booster not working at all. The device will detect all wireless signal in the range and you can choose which one you want to increase the signal. It also will automatically will tell the type of network security it have.
As far as i read review from few places such as Yelp.com and Amazon.com, the NetGear’s customer service is horrible. The representative is randomly picked and know nothing about the setting, they just follow the step by step on paper process and blaming me for using Linksys router. I have to figure out myself that the stings is actually mismatch. The product support is not good compare to other brand such as CISCO and Linksys, but the Netgear Universal WN3000RP Wi-Fi Range Extender did a great job as advertised.
