The Linksys RE1000 is the new WiFi extender introduced by the company. So, how good it is? Read on to find out more about this product.
The design is simple, somewhat understated. But this is not surprising at all. Manufacturers of utility products, which Linksys RE1000 indubitably is, often give more attention to other important aspects such as usability and configuration. Linksys, too, has done exactly the same.
The installation process is ridiculously simple. If you use a router that includes WiFi Protected Setup, all you need to do is press the embedded WPS button on both of your devices—router and Linksys RE1000.
Those of you who use a standard 11n network that has WPA2 security will need to perform the following steps:
- Plug in the Linksys RE1000
- Insert the setup CD
- Enter the network password
In our test, we were impressed by its range. With this Wi-Fi extender, we observed, the data rates did not fall considerably when we moved 8-10 meters away from the router with considerable obstruction in between.
To conclude, Linksys RE1000 is a useful Wi-Fi extender. It helps you stay connected to the Internet even when you are a few meters away from the router. Needless to say, if you use the Internet, you must protect yourself against malware attack. Install a reliable antivirus tool and surf without any tension.
