What customers say about "Key Specs"
NETGEAR EX3700 AC750 WiFi Range Extender
  • Worked great, easy to use, fast speed, great range. Simple as can be.
  • Having the dual band (32.4 and 5 GHz) signal was very helpful. Its ben three months since I installed it and never had to reset or reconnect.
  • Download speed tests with the Extender ran as high as 46Mbps out of a theoretical 50, far higher than I'd ever seen when I used an Airport Express.
  • Ethernet port is only 100mbps. This is advertised but easy to forget with gigabit so common now.
  • Doesn't give you the original speed as advertised. 40% to 50% loss in speed.
NETGEAR EX2700 Wi-Fi Range Extender
  • Worked good and extended the range and speed on my WiFi.
  • The speed improvement in the back of the house is quite noticeable.
  • This Netgear Range Extender saved me at both houses, bringing my internet signal up to a minimum of 3 bars, but usually at least 4.
  • I found setup very easy, the instructions clear, and it has been working flawlessly and the range is great.
  • The range is good and i can definitely see a benefit from using it.
