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 EX6100-100NAS AC750 WiFi Range Extender with Gigabit Ethernet
  • The Netgear extends an existing Wi-Fi network for both 2.4GHz and 5GHz clients simultaneously. You can use it as both a bridge and as a dual-band access point.
  • Good Wi-Fi signal extending up to 100 feet in testing. Easy setup.
  • Fairly good signal strength and good wireless speeds. Gigabit ethernet port allows for full speeds in AP mode.
  • The Netgear X6100's range on the 5GHz band is short, it increases the latency for connected clients, and its Wi-Fi speeds are slow. It's also bulky and runs hot.
  • Slow browsing at 50 feet from the testing router. Only one Gigabit Ethernet port.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
NETGEAR EX3700 AC750 WiFi Range Extender
  • The size of the unit is small so you don't have this huge thing hanging on wall outlet. It is easy enough to get set up.
  • This one looks good and has a small size surprisingly. Connecting this to my existing wifi network was easy.
  • The size of the device is as described, but it seems smaller because it does so much.
  • It is super tiny size, like about size of cigarette pack and you can still use the other outlet. Highly recommended!
  • This device is wireless to use once installed so there were no extras cables laying around anywhere and the size is very practical.
NETGEAR EX6100-100NAS AC750 WiFi Range Extender with Gigabit Ethernet
  • Great size and very suitable for home use. Not noticeable and does not attract too much attention.
  • I like that it's white, the same color as the outlet plate so it doesn't stand out on the wall.
  • I like that it is white so it completely fits the interior of the room.
  • Sometimes it falls out of the outlet due to its weight, so it is better to use it vertically.
  • After a while, the white color turned half black. And very poorly laundered which causes disappointment.
