Date Issued: 26th Oct 2006

As a growing number of homes contain more than one computer, their users must find ways to network them. The primary purpose for creating a home network tends to be to provide Internet access to all computers within the house. There are other good reasons, however. These include enabling LAN gaming, data backups from one machine to another and the sharing of music within the home.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great item Good wireless range, easy to set up. Recommended.. 30 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works as described Pretty easy to setup. The AP just needs to be connected to the router for the setup to take place. For the price I would recommend and the signal is stronger then the standard Sky router. 02 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by It does what it says on the tin! Easy to set up. Plenty of options for customising if you want them 22 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works well Bought this to extend my wifi. Great setup wizard works you through setting up for the various different setup scenarios. Delivery was quick would recommend 16 January 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by I could not get it to work the way I wanted This might be just me, but I was unable to get this extender to work in the manner I needed. The extender could see the wireless router, and my desktop could see the extender, but despite following the set up directions I was unable to get a desktop-to-extender-to-wireless-to-router connection working. 12 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does what it says on the tin Works perfectly. The installation instructions have one inaccuracy - but Googling for an alternative set of instructions solved the problem (you need to know the default password and the instructions included doesn't provide it). I now have two installations using this item as an access point. Both working faultlessly. 07 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great Really easy to set up, you seem to have to use the cdrom rather than web page which I'm used to. Used it for picking up the wifi hot spot from a mobile phone and sending it wired and wireless round the house - worked a treat. Well made and excellent value. Can't recommend it enough. Could also be used to connect an xbox360 to the Internet without having to buy a ripoff official wireless connector. 09 January 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good for the price. Not for beginners. I use mine as an access point with a wired connection back to my main router. Pro: - Cheap - Good range - Admin interface has lots of options - Looks discrete - Wall mounting screws included Cons: - Setup was a bit problematic. - The switch is only cat5 with 2 pairs of conductors. Overall it's brilliant for the price. If you've got a reasonable knowledge of networking you'll be fine. Not great for beginners - it took me 1-2 hours to get working with my existing network. 16 October 2013
