3.0 out of 5 stars Devices keep disconnecting. June 25 2013
By D. Hentze - Published on Amazon.com

Original review:
I'm using the Diamond Multimedia WR300NSI Portable Wireless-N Repeater to improve and extend the range of the WiFi network in my house. For the most part, it's done its job, but not without some quirks. The device only comes with a quick start guide. If you want a full user's manual, you have to download it from Diamond's website. Setting up the WR300NSI is fairly simple and quick though. You plug it into a wall, and connect it to your PC with an Ethernet cable (included). Once connected, you enter you network information via a web browser, and you're good to go. After the setup process, you can plug the device into any outlet in your house that you want. It is recommended that you place it somewhere between your router and the Wifi weak spot of your house. My router is on the 2nd floor of my house, so I placed the WR300NSI on my first floor to give me better coverage on the 1st floor and basement. Signal wise, it is doing a great job. My signal on the first floor went from 80% to 98%. Signal in my basement went from 60% to 92%. There are some bugs I have to work out though. For some reason, a couple but not all of my wireless devices occasionally drop connection and reconnect despite the strong signal. Also, one time I got an "IP Address Conflict" on my PC connected via Ethernet. I rebooted my computer, and the problem has not returned. I have since gone over the WR300NSI's setting with a fine tooth comb and found nothing that should be causing me such issues. For now, I consider the issues minor and it will not keep me from using the Diamond Multimedia WR300NSI Portable Wireless-N Repeater. Perhaps a firmware update is needed. I will continue to try and diagnose the issues, and if I discover the cause I will post an update. Until then, I recommend the Diamond Multimedia WR300NSI Portable Wireless-N Repeater as long as you're aware there might be some issues.

Update: I've spent several days trying to diagnose why some of my devices continue to disconnect from my network for no apparent reason, and things are just getting worse. Several of my devices keep trying to obtain an IP Address and just disconnect. Some of my devices work fine. I've never had this issue on my network with any device, and if I take the WR300NSI offline all my devices work fine. Since I'm now seeing other people having similar issues, I'm leaving the WR300NSI offline until a solution is found.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only Marginally More Useful Than Nothing July 28 2013
By T. Adlam - Published on Amazon.com

There isn't much documentation that arrives with the repeater, but set up was relatively simple and straightforward. You plug the device into an outlet, plug the ethernet cable into your computer, and load the repeater's GUI to complete the remaining set up. It doesn't take very long, however, the repeater's GUI is incredibly slow (I verified this wasn't a computer issue by testing it across multiple machines running different operating systems and it lagged on *all* of them)--on a positive note, one should only need to deal with the GUI a few times in the use of this product (that's assuming all goes well).

Although I can use all my wireless devices throughout my home, the wireless signal is spotty in my office and a few devices have weak or spotty signals (specifically my desktop's internal WiFi adapter and my netbook, each of which will get only 1-2 bars). That's where I thought a repeater would come in handy--it's supposed to, as the name implies, repeat a wireless signal that it picks up and forward it on to its final destination. That's a simplification, of course, but it's the gist. Unfortunately, there were problems from the start.

First problem was with this device actually *repeating* the signal--it didn't. Let me back up and mention that during the set up process I was briefly presented with an error message that quickly disappeared before the repeater finished the set up process. Barring that blip all else seemed to go fine and the repeater had latched on to my wireless network and appeared to be in full working order. Upon moving it to its intended final location, the repeater failed to repeat.

In my troubleshooting I found that I could set up a bridge easily enough and I could set it to function as its own access point easily enough, however, as its own access point the signal output was exceptionally poor and unreliable. That's when I decided to do a hard reset (i.e. pressing the reset button to restore factory settings) and start over.

After going through the process again, I did receive the same brief error message again, but this time the repeater actually managed to do its primary function and repeat the given wireless signal. That said, I noticed no significant boost--though to be fair, I did get a one bar bump (i.e. instead of a solid 2 bars, I was getting a solid 3 bars), but it was no where near what was claimed. As if that wasn't bad enough, the signal kept dropping.

So, I decided to try placing the repeater in a different location. This is also where I should mention that it was placed in a halfway point as recommended and I had 2 out of 3 bars on the device (i.e. it fell within the "recommended" range to pick up the wireless signal). This is when everything went downhill and fast. No matter where I placed the device it would only get one bar--even when I put it in the direct line of sight of the router and even when I placed it in its prior location where it had gotten 2 bars.

This called for a little experiment involving my iPhone, Android tablet, and my finicky netbook. Basically I took all three devices throughout my home to see how strong a signal each would be able to get. In a location where both my iPhone and tablet received a strong 5 bars and my netbook received a solid 3 bars (sometimes 4), I decided to plug in this device. One bar. Frankly, a device whose sole purpose is to boost a wifi signal, one would think its internal antenna would be stronger than that of a cell phone, tablet, and an aging netbook. But it seems one would be wrong.

So while this did manage to do some of the things it claims (i.e. acting as a wirless access point and bridge) it performed poorly where it truly counted--as a repeater and booster of a wireless signal in order to "reduce/eliminate dead spots".

3.0 out of 5 stars Easy Set-Up June 26 2013
By S. WIlliams - Published on Amazon.com

I've long been using a second router as a repeater to extend the wireless signal throughout our house, but we still have a few chronic low signal areas, which this range extender has seemed to

First off, and much to its credit, the Diamond Multimedia was dead simple to set-up. Plug it into the wall (it's about the size of two decks of cards, back-to-back) and then use the included Ethernet cable to hook up to your computer. Turn off your wifi and enter and the provided IP address to get to the set-up GUI and it automatically loads your wireless networks, allowing you to chose and enter the password. Once that's done, the system automatically reboots and you're done. You can now move the unit, sans Ethernet cable, to any outlet in your house. If you know your router's SSID (the visual name that shows up when you select your wifi) and password, you can do all this in well under 10 minutes. (Unlike the 45-plus it originally took me umpteen years ago to do the same with my full-featured router.)

In my case, I'm still only getting two bars on the Diamond, but it is working to better signal in places where I normally had only 2-3 bars on my MacBook or iPad, boosting them to full signal.

BUT I'm still getting intermittent drops, where I have to re-select the wifi and reconnect, despite a seemingly strong signal. That's not an issue I've ever had before with either my primary or secondary router.

UPDATE AFTER FOUR MONTHS OF USE: Well, I'm no longer using the Diamond and have lowered the star rating accordingly. While it did seem to MARGINALLY increase signal strength, the constant disconnects I received on multiple devices (two different laptops, iPad, iPhones of various vintages) just weren't worth it. Once I took the Diamond out of the equation my wifi network went back to being rock solid. Yes, a few spots in the house have low signal strength, but that's better than not being able to stay connected. At least for me.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible product! Oct. 24 2013
By Mike Friend - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I don't normally write comments on products but felt it necessary to for this one.. I ordered this extender in hopes to cover areas of our home where we have little or no coverage from our wireless router. After finding that the first one wouldn't even find our wireless router, i requested a replacement (which was shipped right away - thank you!).. The second one finally found my wireless but with the network cable attached only gave me 1/2 the mbps both up and down than my wireless router did. This extender couldn't even give me a connection that matched my wireless signal. And to top it off, the extender never did broadcast a signal... sending this one back too and never buying a product from this company again... Signed, Completely Disgusted!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unlike other range extenders, this one actually raised the bars! July 17 2013
By Beldini - Published on Amazon.com

I hadn't had much luck with prior range extenders in terms of boosting the wireless reception in my home office. Because it's not a direct shot from the location of our router (there are walls and corners to navigate), I've had to settle for frustratingly slower Internet speeds with several other range extenders failing to deliver on the promise of boosting my bars.

So I was a bit dubious that the WR300NSI Diamond Multimedia 300Mbps Wireless Repeater Range Extender (with Wireless Access Point and Wireless Bridge Device) would come through where it mattered.

Set up was pretty easy--you plug the device into an outlet near your computer and then connect it via the supplied cable to your computer's Ethernet port. Once the connection to the WR300NSI is established (it happens quickly), it links automatically to an IP address which took me to the configuration page showing available wireless networks. I then selected the one I wanted to connect to, providing the router's password, and in about a minute, I was all set. I then unplugged the WR300NSI and relocated it to an outlet that was roughly halfway between the router and my dead spot. A handy feature of the WR300NSI is the green LED indicator which helps you find the optimum outlet location.

While the end result didn't give me five full bars, it does consistently boost my reception by one-to-two bars, making a noticeable difference in my on-line response times.

So thank you Diamond for coming through where others have let me down. You've got a good product--one that really doesn't need the two blonde babes on the box to sell it.
