What customers say about "Key Specs"
NETGEAR EX6150-100UKS 1200 Mbps Dual Band Gigabit Wifi Range Extender
  • Fast speeds and dual bands. Great unit.
  • Works well and easy setup, speeds are very good on AC.
  • The power and coverage was surprising.
  • Wi-Fi connection from the room has a extremely poor connection speed.
  • The WiFi range and signal did not improved wifi much and also speed were slowed down.
TP-LINK RE450 AC1750 Universal Dual Band Range Extender
  • Best range extender i've used - full 350mb speeds on 5Ghz.
  • I set it up with my access points downstairs and took it upstairs to the hallway, and now all rooms are serviced so well with a decent wifi speed.
  • These are awesome, the 5ghz pushes out the exact bandwidth of my router and probably more if you have a speedy connection.
  • Before install we were getting very low speeds, and contentious drop outs. WiFi signal is now stable and not far off full speed is available.
  • Signal speed hadn't improved much, only by 5 mbps.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"

  • Easy to install and set-up. Great size.
  • Ideal size for home and office.
  • Great little device that does as advertised, small and not heavy at all.
  • Small size, Great range, good price.
  • This thing is large especially by comparison to my older extender.
TP-LINK RE450 AC1750 Universal Dual Band Range Extender
  • It fits in a double socket well enough without hindering the adjoining socket.
  • It’s small enough that it’s not hogging more than a single standard wall socket. Great stuff!
  • A compact, nice looking unit that was very easy to set-up.
  • My only gripe would be that it is larger than I imagined, being the size of a large 'plus' size phone.
  • Bigger than I envisaged so check that you are happy with the size.
