I have to admit I struggled with this wifi extender, and maybe Ive misunderstood the function, because Im not an IT expert. In our rear TV room the wifi strength from our home Orange Router was fair to sometimes good. The purpose I bought this for was to improve this wifi signal, and improve my TV streaming quality. So, the setup is not as straightforward as it seems, to cut a long story short, I used the internet to connect, and I set up a separate wifi account, with its own name, but using the same pass word as my home router. There are good Utube guides on how to do this, because I found the included instructions not accurate for the internet set up. So, everything was good, I positioned the extender between my own home router and the rear TV room, I had three wifi bars showing, and the app said it was in an optimal position. And then some good news, the wifi signal went from fair/good to very good in the rear room, I was happy. But, when I streamed my TV, it was buffering as much as before, and going off all together intermittently?? This didnt happen when connected to the home router. So, I decided to do a Speed Test, and found my router WiFi was pumping out 16Mb/s on wifi to the rear room, and the extender was down to 12Mb/s,?? so I tried changing the servers, and also trying through my VPN link, still the same, 16 from home router, 12 from extender. So, this took me to the end of my expertise, and I would like to know why the extender cant at least boost the signal so it matches the router, and also why does the extender improve my wifi signal strength, but not the streaming speed? Ive sent it back, excellent service from Amazon as usual, but I still dont understand why it didnt improve my TV Streaming? So, in my case, didnt work. Ive still given three stars because it does boost the wifi signal, but didn't appear to improve my tv streaming, good response from vendor, appreciated. Further update, after receiving very detailed vendor support, ive changed my router wifi channels to new settings, and the extender streaming speed has increased from 12Mb/s to 15Mb/s, and is now matching my Orange Router in the marginal wifi zone in our rear bedroom, Happy. The lesson ive learnt is that, for the price, its an amazing product, but you have to perceiver with the set up and testing. And certainly contact the vendor with any issues.
