Rated 4 out of 5 by enduser from They function well enough They work as advertised. I subtracted one star due to difficulty updating the firmware. Mine are stuck at 220.127.116.11 and when I use the web portal at orbilogin.com, they don't show that there's any update available (after clicking "check" for updates). After trying to manually update the firmware and downloading / unzipping the downloaded firmware, it gives me a CHK file. The support documentation says that the firmware will be either "CHK" or "IMG" - so I go to upload the firmware, but then receive an error message that says the file is NOT supported, and MUST be in "IMG" format. So the download link they provide for the firmware is rejected by their own portal. I try re-naming the CHK extension to IMG, which is accepted - but the end of the upload process results in an error (the file is not a valid update file). Not quite sure how to get the latest update to 18.104.22.168

Rated 5 out of 5 by SeventiesGirl from Works Perfectly I purchased this as an add-on to my Orbi50 wifi router to strengthen the wifi signal in my lower level office. It works perfectly. I now have a very strong signal. We have 3 TVs running HULU Live and Netflix plus one PC, one laptop and 3 iphones and we always have a perfect wifi signal.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Layna from Hard to hook up It was unclear when I purchased the extender that I had to get the router to go with it. It could hook up directly to my current router. So I purchased the special Orbi router. I could not get the two to sync for the life of me and it wasn't easy to contact their support for help. I ended up returning both products and bought something much cheaper that was a breeze to set up. And it works just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KL13478 from Highly Recommended I needed a product that would extend the WiFi coverage from one apartment building to another. I tried all the other repeaters and extenders. But this one did not lose speed and was easy set up. It even has an app that can make it more easy to reboot the main router without having physical access to it.
