Linksys RE1000 Wireless-N Range Extender Review

Wireless Repeater Linksys RE1000 Wireless-N Range Extender
The Linksys RE1000 Wireless-N Range Extender is a great dedicated wireless repeater. It can also be used as a bridge to connect wired devices to a wireless network. Its most attractive feature is its easy, fast installation: you can set it up in just a few minutes using the wizard on the CD that comes with the product. This device is a good, inexpensive solution if all you need is to extend your wireless signal to low-coverage areas or link up wired devices to your WiFi.

Linksys RE1000 Features:

  • b/g/n support
  • Extended range with two internal antennas
  • Fast Ethernet port to connect wired devices
  • Desktop placement or wall mounting
  • Quality of Service prioritization technology to prevent video streaming skips, avoid dropped calls and improve gaming performance

Pros:

  • Fast, easy installation with CD
  • Flexible deployment options – optimize location and position for best range
  • Cheaper solution than multi-functional device by the same manufacturer

Cons:

  • Its dedicated extender nature means you can’t use it for anything else if you end up reorganizing your network at a later date, unlike a multi-functional wireless tool (like the TP-Link WL TL-WA901ND)
