Summering: It just doesn't work. It will not connect to the existing WiFi network. At times it sees and monitors the existing WiFi other time it cannot even see that there is a network. I have tried several time to reach Netgear support, only once have I suceeded and it took that guy 22 minutes to realize the power led was already lit.
Summering: I used it in the basement to extend the range using a DECA since I have DirecTV. Works like a charm. Throughput is about 1/2 what it is standing next to the main router upstairs, but it is quite a distance and still plenty to stream movies in HD without a glitch. Inexpensive and workable solution to my dead spot.
Summering: Easy to setup. Boosted my signal to full in basement and provided me extra Ethernet ports for my AV system equipment. Used as an Access Point, it maintained the bandwith vs using an extender. Very satisfied.

Summering: after several tries and contacting Netgear phone support I finally got this connected to my network as an access point. It works fine now but the instructions for installing the AP are complex and confusing. Interestingly my main network has a Netgear R7000 router (Nighthawk) and this was very easy to install. Netgear should update/improve the installation process for the AP.
Summering: Very poor instructions and online help was useless. I spent hours trying to set up with no success. The online help just repeated the inadequate instructions. Unbelievable in this day of plug and play devices.
