Excellent But You must UNDERSTAND the setup July 14 2012
By SUMA DOPPALAPUDI - Published on Amazon.com

1. The CD did not come of much use. It was not connecting to the Extender. Period. Then I called them and got help from a GREAT technician with Linksys
2. The Concept
You obviously have a wireless router. This must sync with the Extender. Let's say you just plug in the extender. Windows Wireless refresh will pick up the extender, but will do nothing beyond that. Since this is not connected to the main router yet, it will not even give you internet. Again the extender must be made to sync with the main router in ALL respects.

3. Simply connect the extender to the lap top computer using an ethernet cable. Put the extender close by in a power outlet and turn it on i.e. until the CSCO stops blinking and stays lit.
4. From the windows refresh wireless networks, choose the extender ( it always shows up)
5. Try to open an internet browser. IT will not work, since the extender does not connect to the internet.
6. It will ask you for user and pw. type in admin in user id and admin in pw
7. this will open the web interface for the extender.
8. Now you have to sync with the router.
9. Go under wireless and click on the main router SSID and click Connect. This will ask you for the router password. Once you put that in your are done.
10. Disconnect the ethernet cables.
11. Again choose the referesh wireless networks. Now you will not see the extender. You will see the main router. However since the extender is synced with the router, you can now move the extender somewhere midway between poor and good reception.

The main thing now. My iphone started dropping the signals and I had to reconnect each time with the password. Since I knew the CONCEPT, i went back to the web interface of the main router and checked the TYPE of pass phrase. It was WEP2 Personal. IT does not matter which one, but must the same in the extender. Just putting the pw is not enough. It must be the same TYPE.

So in the main router, I verified the DHCP Reservation to check the RE1000 (extender. Check its IP address.

Open a browser and type in this IP address of the RE 1000
type in admin for user id and admin for pw
- Go to Basic Wireless Settings
- Go to Manual
In Security Mode, choose the same TYPE of Security Mode as in the main router.
Of course put in the same Passphrase as in the main router.

If not the extender will drop your devices and you will have to reenter the password.

I have all the bars working now in our 5000 sq ft house and even gets WIfi on the deck with 2 bars and 1 bar even when I go to the Stop sign and the end of the road.

FYI : Disclaimer : I am just a computer lay person. I wrote this to help people like me. Maybe if you have better computers it will work like they say i.e. just plug in and it will work. The problem, we make so many changes to our wireless routers over the years etc that you will have to do some work.

Good Luck.

Product Has Fatal Flaw (NOW CORRECTED) June 16 2013
By Mark V Shumeyko - Published on Amazon.com
I recently purchased two of these so I could extend both the 2.4ghz and 4.8ghz networks of my dual band Linksys router. The CD assisted auto setup did not work the first couple of times but eventually I got both set up. The manual Ethernet setup is actually very easy as an alternate setup method. The extenders worked great for the first day, seamlessly extending the networks. However, after one day one of the units began flashing an irregular pattern, stopped sending an identifiable signal, and was inaccessible via Ethernet or wireless. I returned it via RMA to the seller (not Amazon although I am a frequent Amazon customer). Yesterday the second RE2000 developed the exact same problem after 10 days of use. I have found other users on the Linksys customer forum who have had the same issue with their units. There is obviously a problem and I would advise readers not to purchase this product until the problem is solved.

FOLLOW UP ON PROBLEM RESOLUTION: Now 10 days after the above review I would like to add that I have worked with the Linksys engineers over the phone and in the end they have confirmed that there is a batch of RE200's that have been sold with defective chips. They recommend that anyone with these faulty units return them to the seller but if that is not possible they will take them back. I received and set up the unit and it is working perfectly, giving me full home coverage of my 5.8ghz network with 300mb/s speed. Also, the Linksys engineers were extremely knowledgeable, helpful and courteous in my dealings with them.

Found the secret to keep it from dropping out of service Nov. 3 2011
By Kim Fa Rosadi - Published on Amazon.com
At first I thought this product was CRAP! The first 2 weeks was nothing but nightmare. the repeater was dropping in and out of service religiously. Then I found the secret. Change the ip from DHCP to static! I'd use the first 100 of the last address. This thing been working like a charm since then. Haven't dropped once. I'd give it a 5 star for its performance but minus 2 for letting me thru hell to figure out how to make it stable.

Amazing Device- Lousy Warranty Sept. 13 2011
By Lorena Sestayo - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I'm changing my star rating from 5 stars to 3 solely on this products warranty. I had a problem with it, four months after purchase, and I contact the manufacturer directly. I was told that it only comes with 90 day warranty. If I wanted to speak with a technician tonight it would be $29.99, but if I upgraded, I could have a whole 6 months for $39.99. It's my own fault for not having read the fine print, but 90 day warranty seems too little. And I refuse to pay that kind of money to fix a device that's 4 months old. It shouldn't have issues so soon. I was able to continue playing with it, until I got it to work. Now, I'm really glad I didn't pay $30 for someone to walk me through a troubleshoot. I still think its a great product when it works, but I don't think it has a good warranty system. Keep that in mind when purchasing.

****Original 5 star Review*****
I'm ecstatic with this purchase. Our router is in the basement, so the rest of the house gets really poor wi-fi. I've been looking for alternatives for some time. I switched out the antennas, I tried another extender (The Cisco-Linksys WRE54G Wireless-G Range Expander - REFURBISHED), and nothing worked. This took less then 5 minutes to set up, I didn't need to plug it into the computer or go down to the basement. I was just in a section of the house that gets decent reception did my magic, and now the entire house gets at least 75% reception. These areas were working with less than 25% prior to plugging in the extender. I have to play with the location of the device, but I believe I can get my house to above 80%. Even at the current rate, it's amazing. I'm not limited to where I can work on my computer, and now, we have wifi in the living room, so we can finally stream some movies to our big screen tv. :)

The design is nice and attractive. I have it right now in my bedroom, and it doesn't create an eye soar. It's also small enough not to draw too much attention to itself. I liked the price. It wasn't the cheapest, but also not the most expensive on the list. I also picked it because it was the same brand as my router, and I thought it might ease the set up. I had no problem with that. It took about 5 minutes to program, and it works great. I recommend it to anyone else that's having similar issues.

:)

It's not the setup that is difficult... Dec 2 2011
By Oxygen - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The problem (that I believe the majority are facing) is not setting up the RE1000, it's the RE1000 dropping other devices from the internet after couple of minutes.

I.e. devices connected to the RE1000 will still show you full home wifi signal strength and never loose connection to the RE1000, but they simply loose the ability to connect to the internet (i.e. browse the web, etc..).

I've used the RE1000 it to extend my Cisco Linksys E4200 signal, and this device has been nothing but pain so far, and it seems I'm not alone at this.

I'm a senior software developer, and own plenty of routers, many of which are custom dd-wrts, and rarely I find something this frustrating to use without being the manufacturer at fault.

Anyway, I'll hopefully update this review if Cisco releases a firmware upgrade that fixes this device. So until then, my advice is stay away.

p.s.
to whom it may concern, RE1000 also doesn't support mac address filter option enabled on your home router that the RE1000 is extending.

Other devices won't be able to connect to the RE1000 if mac filter option is enabled on your home router (even though those devices' mac addresses are properly listed in your home router along with the RE1000 mac address).
