Netgear EX6200 Wifi Range Extender–Product Review–Extend your Wifi Range
Netgear has a name for producing reliable networking products so when I was recommended this wifi range extender by my friendly techie I had no problems in trying it out.
If you’ve had the problem, as I have recently, of improving your wireless signal by going fiber-optic, or even if you have a normal broadband router, there may be areas of your home (or outside your home) where you still want a strong signal but it just doesn’t reach.
I’ve done trial and error with range extenders from Amped Wireless to ASUS but without any doubt the Netgear EX6200 is the best I’ve come across.
After setting it up which took about 10 minutes – others could have done it more quickly I’m sure – which involved
plugging it in near the router,
finding the signal,
setting up on my laptop,
moving to the right location,
testing and hooking up on iPhone, iPad and Laptop for signal in the areas that I wanted to improve
I haven’t had a second’s downtime or problem since.
The Netgear EX6200 range extender comes at a price, there are far cheaper options and those that are more expensive depending on your requirements. The best place to buy it is Amazon (or Broadbandbuyer.com and make sure you’re taking delivery into account when you’re comparing prices) but for worry-free continuous wifi from a powerful piece of kit I doubt you’ll be able to improve on the results.
The other element that I like about it is that with it’s modern, sleek black and red design this range extender will look good just about anywhere, and you can use it standing, as I do, or flat.
5 Ethernet ports for wired connections.
