Review: Linksys RE1000 Wireless-N Range Extender


This is the simplest device I have used all year. Just connect it to wall power plug and run the installation software. The simplest task is choosing which network the Extender will connect and amplify.

The Linksys RE1000 Wireless-N Range Extender comes with 2 x 2 antennas. One antenna to Send & Receive signal from the main wireless router you want to extend, while the other antenna, amplifies the signal further.

This will definitely go a long way to help cover the dead spots in your home, areas that the wireless signal range from your main wireless router, that are not able to reach.

You do not have to use it with similar Linksys wireless routers, it work across all brands. This is a good solution as you may not want to re-invest in another router to suit your purpose. However, combining the Linksys RE1000 Wireless-N Range Extender as well as any of the Linksys Wireless -N Router ensure you get the maximum bandwidth, especially if you are on a fibre optic network.

For consumers experiencing weaker signal strength or “dead spots” in the home, the Linksys RE1000 Range Extender is the perfect companion for wider home coverage. The extender is designed to take an existing wireless signal and repeat it throughout the home to ‘extend’ the signal. The Linksys Range Extender also acts as a wireless bridge – connecting a wired printer, Internet enabled TV or game console to the wireless network through its integrated Ethernet port.
