Netgear WN2500RP Review
The Netgear WN2500RP Universal Dual Band Wi-Fi Range Extender is a dedicated wireless repeating device. It’s on the higher end of the scale. It offers dual band support and dynamic LED indicators to help find the best location. The WN2500RP works with any standard wireless router, and allows you to connect smartphones, iPads, iPhones, etc..
With this simple and powerful device you will be able to use high quality wireless network with great coverage area. This adapter boosts dual band Wi-Fi coverage. It has 4 ports for wired connection, so you can connect this adapter to your Home-Theatre Ethernet TV or any device which needs Wi-Fi connection. It is very useful to transfer your wireless network out of your home. The Netgear Universal Dual Band Wi-Fi Range Extender uses weak signals from your router and by the unique dual band system amplifies the weak signal, making it great and strong for use. This will be the best solution if you have problems with wireless network coverage area.
The WN2500RP promises to extend the range of the 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz bands simultaneously. Users with 802.11b and 802.11g wireless routers can only access the 2.4GHz frequency band. Users with 802.11n wireless routers can access both 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz bands. The Netgear Wi-Fi range extender supports all router models providing more channels for users with true dual band (802.11n enabled router supporting either 802.11b or 802.11g) routers reducing the potential for slow Wi-Fi speeds by interference. 802.11n enabled dual band Wi-Fi repeaters can also access and amplify the 5.0GHz frequency, twice the band speed for Wireless B and Wireless G routers, increasing overall wireless network speed and range, reducing interference effects, and providing more reliability.
The package includes Universal Dual Band Wi-Fi Range Extender, 4-port Wi-Fi Adapter (WN2500RP), Power adapter, and also installation guide for simple set up. NETGEAR gives you 1 year warranty for this product. Set up is quite simple using WPS (Wi-Fi protected set-up) and allows a secure connection to an existing network without the need to type in a network name and a password. Just press the WPS button on back of theWN2500RP and the WPS on the router to connect the 2.4Ghz band. If your router supports the 5Ghz band, simply repeat the above steps and the 5Ghz indicator will illuminate. Having two bands, it allows users to prioritize connections like your gaming console to ensure a faster, more reliable connection. The device should be placed halfway between the router and the devices you’d like to connect.
The Netgear device is also built-in with Fast Lane Technology which provides high speed over a single band and enables maximum bandwidth for things like high definition video streaming and online gaming. The Netgear WN2500RP comes with lots of integrated security features and allows for optimum device connectivity eliminating dead spots in a browsing environment. While the price tag is a large commitment to your wireless network, the amount of time saved through faster connections and the large area of connectivity makes the investment worthwhile.
