NETGEAR AC750 WiFi Range Extender

NETGEAR AC750 WiFi Range Extender Review

The NETGEAR AC750 Wi-Fi Range Extender has been specially made to boost your existing wireless network by increasing the Wi-Fi range and speed in hard to reach areas. It can deliver AC750 dual band Wi-Fi with speeds of up to 750Mbps.It has a dual band of 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz unlike many extenders which have a single Wi-Fi band. It works with different kinds of routers and provides Wi-Fi that can be used for HD video streaming and gaming regardless of the location. It can be used with a range of devices such a mobile devices, laptops, tablets among many others. It has a convenient wall-plug design that can connect to any socket. It comes with external antennas that help to improve the performance. In case of a wired Ethernet connection, it has an access point mode that generates a Wi-Fi hotspot. The access point mode comes with a hardware switch for comfort in usage. It has two USB ports, one 2.0 port and another 3.0 port. The device has an ideal weight of 9.6 ounces meaning it can be carried around easily.

Net gear considered the convenience of its users by creating a Wi-Fi analytics app that tests the Wi-Fi strength in any room helping to identify the place with the weakest coverage. Upon usage of the extender, one can use the app to tell the difference in the signal level and strength.

Setting up the Net gear AC750

The device can run in AP mode. This is useful in that it can increase the speed of the wireless connection in cases where there is a bad wireless but a strong Ethernet. The fact that it can run in AP mode means that upon connection in insecure wireless connections one has the option of setting up their own secured SSID with AES pass keys and thus one cannot manage to hack you through the insecure wireless connection.

To set up the extender, there are several ways to do it. For a quick setup, the extender should be plugged in and after plugging in, give it sometime to boot, this should take like two minutes. Connect your device to the SSID of the extender which will bring up something like “NETGEAR_EXT”. Once your device is connected, open the browser and go to the gateway of the extender which should be 192.168.1.250. Upon entering the IP you will be directed to set up mode which will ask you several questions such as the existing Wi-Fi in your area. You will be asked the existing SSID information from the router and upon giving that information you will have to set up a new SSID for the extender. That’s it and you are done with the setup. When connecting a new device one has to use the SSID of the extender and not of the router.

NETGEAR AC750 WiFi Range Extender Review

Another set up mode that one can employ is the AP mode. It will work on AP mode by acting as an AP off your normal network. In this case, one will connect the Ethernet cable to the device and follow the instructions to set it up. This will result in one having two Aps in the same network though different SSIDs. Every AP will have different SSID’s though they can use the same password.

The good this about this extender it does switch you from one network to another rather it gives you the option of choosing the strongest network.

Performance of the extender

The performance of the device is good. However since the device acts as a bridge between the main network and the extended network, lower speeds will be experienced as compared to the original router. This is because the extender acts as an additional router which is low powered and thus the device has sessions and throughput limitations which is most of the time weaker than the original router. There is a reported reduction of speed by like half as compared to the primary router. This means that if one was getting speeds of 100-200mbps they should expect speeds of about 50-60 mbps. The device also creates a ping drop between it and the router and thus may pose a problem to gamers and other heavy users. This mean that if your existing router averages 20-40ms to a close hop the bump will increase that to 40-60ms. For those who expect high performance and no lags whatsoever, they should consider running a router in mesh; installing a WLC or using controlled AP’s.

NETGEAR AC750 WiFi Range Extender Review

This device is perfect for use in insecure wireless connections and hotel rooms hence perfect device for going to vacation with since it will ensure you have secured connection and get the connection you need. The device is also perfect for use with mobile devices since most of the time mobile devices do not demand heavy data unlike computers which need more data. The speeds will work well with mobile devices.

User reviews

Many amazon users liked the device saying it offered what it promised and gave them value for their money. However, what many users on amazon found a problem with the device is in its setup. What they fail to understand is that this device is not some kind of router but rather an extender which means when it is connected to the router it provides a new SSID as a substitute to the old SSID and thus one should use the new SSID and not the old SSID or use them together. The extender takes the SSID from the router and acts as bridge whereby it takes the signal and rebroadcasts it over another SSID with its own hardware. In this case, a new SSID should be assigned for the extender and it should be different from the primary SSID from the router. When wireless devices are connected, the extender will take data from the extender to the router. Maybe a solution to this would be a set of well written instruction to clear the air on any confusion with the set up. More information will make the user to understand if they need an extender or a Mesh device.

Citizen Eco-Drive Men’s BN0151-09L Diver Watch

Citizen Eco-Drive Men’s BN0151-09L Diver Watch Review

If you were looking for a dive watch to purchase, it would be important for you to buy one that will meet all of your needs. It does not matter whether you are a professional diver or someone that would just like a nice flashy watch to strut around with. In the case that you are a diver, you would want to make sure that the watch meets all of your requirements. A dive watch can determine the life of a diver. This is because it is the instrument that you will use to tell how long you have been under the water and when to come out for another oxygen tank. I wouldn’t want to imagine what it would be like running out of oxygen when you are two hundred meters under the water.

Citizen Watches Men's BN0151-09L Promaster Professional Diver

There are very many brands of dive watches on the market and it is very essential for you to make sure that the one you are buying is actually a dive watch. The reason for this is because all watches seem to be trending with the same design, whether it is a sports watch, dive watch or any other type of watch. Some will come with bezels complete with stainless-steel housings for fancy reasons, while others will come equipped for diving, and yet they look the same. Before you quickly jump into buying a dive watch, the best way to find out what the best brands are is to do a thorough research. Thanks to the internet, that is something that could take a very short time as you go through user experience reviews of the different products on offer. You should especially be keen to check out the specifications and features of the dive watch.

In this article, we are going to review the Citizen Eco-Drive Men's BN0151-09L Promaster Diver Watch with Blue PU Band. This is a rather interesting dive watch that comes with a bold blue urethane strap. It can take some time getting used to the blue strap, but the color does blend in well with water. One advantage of the strap is that it is long and can fit comfortably onto a wet suit or a person with big wrists. The watch comes with a solid build that is much thicker than the normal watches. You can dive with the watch for up to 660 feet (200 meters), which is suitable for most divers. The watch comes with a fancy matte finish that makes it less reflective and not too bright.

Large luminous orange dots replace numbers, and the hands are also luminous orange. This is especially good because being luminous, they absorb light and when you go into the dark abyss of the sea, they reflect that light back, enabling you to read the watch when you're in the dark. The rotating bezel of the watch is tight and in order to rotate it, you have to hold onto the ridges, meaning that the bezel is firm. We would have preferred a slightly bigger date window but it is okay. In order for one to use it, the crown has to be unscrewed, a good sign that this watch was indeed made for divers. Dive times are given on the band in meters

This fancy looking watch can also be worn by people that are not divers, and also by women that tend to prefer bigger watches. One of the other good things about this watch is the fact that it starts ticking as soon as you expose it to light since it has a solar powered battery.

Features

  • Round watch featuring unidirectional bezel and blue dial with date window at 4 o'clock and luminous hands/hour markers
  • Eco-Drive technology is fueled by light and never needs a battery
  • ​43 mm stainless steel case with mineral dial window
  • ​Japanese quartz movement with analog display
  • ​Molded polyurethane band with buckle closure
  • Water resistant to 200 m (660 ft): In general, suitable for professional marine activity and serious surface water sports, but not scuba diving

Pros
  • It comes with a great design that makes it attractive to more than just divers
  • Good illumination and readability due to the luminous hands, and it can be read even in the dark
  • It has a solid build
  • It is made of high quality materials
  • Water resistant to 200 m (660 ft): In general, suitable for professional marine activity and serious surface water sports, but not scuba diving
  • Eco-Drive technology is fueled by light and never needs a battery
  • It feels very robust and with the mineral crystal display is sure to stand some serious beatings

thumbs-down-icon

Cons
  • We really didn’t find any bad reviews of this watch, apart from the fact that some users were not impressed by the strap. They say that it feels very stiff unlike other polyurethane straps.

Conclusion

The Citizen Eco-Drive Men's BN0151-09L Promaster Diver Watch with Blue PU Band is a dive watch that is a bang for your buck. It is sturdy and comes with all the features needed for a diver. The watch also looks very fancy and can be worn for other activities. The mineral glass can resist most scratches, not being as strong as sapphire, and the casing solid, meaning that you could be using the watch for the next couple of years without worrying about it failing you. The 20 bar water pressure rating is excellent for divers, and they can go up to 660 feet deep. With this eco range watch, you won't even have to think of replacing the battery any time soon. About the strap, I think that it still looks pretty cool, and the blue color compliments the colors in the casing.

Seiko Men’s SKX173 Automatic Dive Watch

Seiko Men’s SKX173 Automatic Dive Watch Review

Dive watches are probably the most popular watches, and they are even worn by people that know nothing about scuba diving. They are popular due to the fact that they come with good looks and can also withstand quite a beating before they give up, if they will. There are very many brands of dive watches on the market and if you are considering getting one for yourself, it would be imperative for you to do a thorough research to find the one that will suit you. When getting the diving watch, you'll have to know the sort of diving that you'll be doing and wether or not the watch is water resistant and to what depth. There are those that just like to splash around in water, and then there are those professional deep sea divers that go into the dark depths of the ocean. Both groups would use different types of watches since the deep-sea divers would probably want a watch that can go as deep as 300 meters, while those that snorkel or splash around could settle for one that goes as deep as 100 meters.

The Seiko Men's SKX173 Stainless Steel and Black Polyurethane Automatic Dive Watch ranks as one of the diving watches, and it is the one that we are going to be reviewing in this article. We are going to look at all of it's features as well as the good and bad things about it.

The watch comes with a stainless-steel casing and bezel, meaning that it will not corrode making the durability of the watch top notch.. The hands of the watch are luminous and this is a very big advantage. When you are in the upper parts of a water body and your watch has exposure to sunlight you are able to read your watch easily. However, as you dive deeper and deeper into the ocean, the light is absorbed and it gets dark, making it impossible to read the watch. The luminous hands absorb light makes it easy to read when you are in the depths of the dark sea, making it the perfect divers watch. It is very important for one to be able to read the watch while down there because the watch is what will make you know for how long you have been down there and if you are running out of oxygen and if you need to go back up to the surface to get more. In other words, your life depends on the watch when you are scuba diving at the bottom of the sea.

The comfortable fitting strap is made of polyurethane that is pressure vented. This is a durable strap that can last very long.

Battery/ Power Source

The beauty of this Seiko watch is its source of power. It is a winding watch that generally relies on motion. As long as there is motion, the analogue watch will have power. When fully wound, the watch can go for a couple of days before it runs out of power.

Functionality

When it comes to functionality, this analog divers watch is a gem. It is highly functional but casual and it can be worn for virtually any function. It does not matter whether you are going to the gym, office, or going diving for depths up to 200 meters. The band is synthetic, making it the perfect out door watch. It repels sweat and it is not easy for someone to steal if off your hand. Aside from that, it is waterproof and you would not have to worry about the rain getting it wet. This is a watch that will not let you down no matter the sort of activity that you're doing. To top it off, the Seiko watch comes with an attractive look right from the stainless-steel case to the black and white color scheme. You could strut it as a dress piece and watch people noticing it.

Citizen BJ7000-52E Eco-Drive Watch

Citizen BJ7000-52E Eco-Drive Watch Review

Time is a very important factor in our lives. We use it for various purposes and even use it to measure various things. In order to keep track of time, it is important for us to have watches. There are many different types of watches out there, for different purposes. Some of the examples include exercise watches, dive watches, fashion, designer, mechanical, and many more. These are all watches that are designed with features to assist the users in some functions related to their use. In this article, we are going to be reviewing a diver watch. Research on watches that could be used by divers began as early as the 17th century and by the 19th century, they were being produced for explorers and adventurers. In the 1930’s, dive watches began being produced for commercial purposes in Switzerland. Many of the diver watches back then were made to military expectations and were used before and after the world war.

Citizen Men's Eco-Drive Promaster Nighthawk Dual Time Watch with Date, BJ7000-52E

Dive watches are made with a unidirectional bezel that divers can use to show them how long they have been in the water and if they need to get out for a change in oxygen tanks. Being that they will be used under the water, the time pieces usually have a huge display. The display also comes with a lit or luminous features so that it can be read in the dark abyss of the water. When in a water body, the upper part usually has light and the watches are easily readable. However, the deeper that you venture into the water, the darker it gets, and the harder it gets to read the watches. It is very important for one to be able to read the watch because their life practically depends on it while in the air. Oxygen could run out when you are hundreds of feet in the water, and it could turn tragic. Despite the fact that professional divers nowadays employ the use of wrist worn computer devices to monitor the time and depth in the water, watches always come as a good backup.

In this article, we are going to be looking at the Citizen Men's BJ7000-52E Nighthawk Stainless Steel Eco-Drive Watch. A serious timepiece for the serious watch collector, the Citizen BJ7000-52E stainless steel men's watch offers powerful timekeeping functions for your favorite aeronaut. The large round watch case measures approximately 43mm in diameter. It has a thin silver bezel the houses a black dial with a pilot's inner rotating slide rule bezel, which is operated by the secondary crown at 8 o'clock. It has large luminous hands and markers for readability and low-light visibility and dual time (GMT) capability. The triple link bracelet band is composed of brushed silver stainless steel pieces, and it's joined by a push-button folding safety clasp. Other features include a water resistance to 660 feet (200 meters), low-charge indicator window, power saver function, and a scratch-resistant, non-reflective mineral crystal.

When you first take a look at the face, it looks very complicated but the hands are bold and you quickly adjust to it. It also comes with a flight reader that can confuse many people that are not pilots or navigators. The overall look of the dive watch is very appealing and it can be worn by people that are not necessarily divers, pilots or navigators. The band is made of stainless steel that will not rust on you any time soon. It is also long enough to wear over large wrists or a dive suit. A crown on the watch controls the movement of the bezel, which is smooth when you adjust. You can use the slide rule for division, multiplication, unit conversion, and rate/time/distance calculations.

There is also a GMT face on the left side (from 6 to 12) with white & red numbers. There is a separate, double-ended hand with a red-tipped and white-tipped indicator. Out of the box it shows the 24-hour time (white for 00-12 and red for 13 - 24). You can set this to a different hour to have a true GMT indicator.

The light on the watch is nice and bright - a blue color which is different from the traditional green shade. You can read the watch in the dark because the hands are luminous, which I especially good for those that go into the deep sea. Under the water, the deeper that you go, the darker it gets, and the more that you need a watch you can read in the dark.

Features

  • Stainless steel watch featuring date window at three o’clock position, dual-time display, and pilot's slide rule inner chapter ring operated by crown at 8 o'clock position

  • Folded links at the ends (not solid)

Made of stainless steel casing and straps, this watch can take quite a beating. You have to be careful with the glass, though, because mineral glass is not as strong and scratch resistant as sapphire.

Casio GWF1000-1 Dive Watch

Casio GWF1000-1 Dive Watch Review

If you are looking for a good dive watch, you might want to consider the Casio G-Shock GWF1000-1. As a diver, it is important for you to have a watch that will work for you when you are in the water and below are some of the things that you would want to look at in a watch. Good dive watches, in many cases can be used for other purposes other than their intended purpose. It is not uncommon to find the CEO of a company walking around with a designer dive watch and yet they know nothing about diving. As the name states, dive watches are used for scuba or deep sea diving. As it is, dive watches are probably the sturdiest watches that there are on the market. They are water resistant and can also take quite a beating before you have to get a new one. The Casio G-Shock Frogman Digital Dial Black Resin Solar Quartz Men’s Watch GWF1000-1is one such watch. Take a look at some of the features that you should look at when choosing a good dive watch in relation to the Casio Frogman, below:

Casio Men's GWF1000 Frogman

Depth

It is very important for you to get a watch that can go as deep as you love diving. This Casio Frogman watch can go up to 200 meters under water, which is adequate for the regular divers. There are other brands of watches that can go even deeper but this one will work perfectly for the regular diver. Remember, if you're after splashing around in the pool, snorkeling or playing on water slides, a dive watch with a depth limit of 100 meters will work for you. However, if you are into actual deep sea diving, you would want to go for one that is at least 300 meters. When buying a watch, check out the reviews of other user experiences and it is also best to go for watches with depth limits that are greater than what you swim.

Visible Display

When you are near the surface of the water, there is plenty of light and it is easy for you to read your watch. However, the deeper that you go under the water, the darker it gets and the harder it gets to see the display of your watch. You would therefore want to get a watch that has lighting or one that has luminous hands that can reflect light. One other tip for the display of a watch is to go for a watch that is simple without too many complications on the dial. You don’t want to go crazy with panic when you're under the water and you're not sure if you read the right display. The Casio Frogman Digital dive watch comes with a digital display that is well lit by a background light when it is dark under the water.

Case Material

It is very important to get a dive watch with case material that is water resistant, does not corrode or rust and is easy to wear over the dive material. The bottom of the casing should be sealed or screwed in and not the pop out casings. This is because the pop out casings tend to leak faster and cannot sustain too much pressure. There should be no cracks or openings on the case. The watch could have high ratings, but remember that every now and then you also run into a bad egg. Check the casing of the watch thoroughly before you purchase it or return it if you purchased it online and it comes with cracks or openings. Remember, your life will depend on the watch when you're under water, and that is something that you should never compromise. The most common materials that are used are stainless steel, titanium, silicone and rubber. In the case of this Casio Frogman Digital, the bands are made of rubber while the display has hardened mineral glass that can resist water up to 200 meters deep. Other types of watches have sapphire as their watch crystal material, which is more scratch resistant than the hardened mineral glass. The case of the Casio Frogman is made of stainless steel that is just fine for water.

Unidirectional Bezel

This is one of the most outstanding features of a dive watch. The best dive bezels rotate counter clockwise, making it easy for the diver to set and see how long they have been under the water. This is handy because it can let the diver know when their air is about to run out amongst other things. The Casio Frogman is digital and easy to set your timing to show you how long you have been under the water. It comes with a ISO 200M WR Dive Timer.

Know the Watch

Once you have purchased the watch, it is very important for you to get to know it. Practice using the watch. The good thing with the Casio Frogman is that it is a very easy to use digital watch that you'll quickly adapt to.

Citizen Eco-Drive Men’s Silvertone Dive Watch

Citizen Eco-Drive Men’s Silvertone Dive Watch Review

Dive watches seem to be taking over the world by storm. That is because they can be used for many more things other than diving. This is because of their good looks and hardiness, being that they can take quite a beating before they give in. They also happen to be waterproof and can go under water to depths of 200 meters or more. This means that even the deep-sea divers can use them to whatever levels the watches reach. There are some things to look at when purchasing a dive watch, and we will look into them at some point.

In this article, we are going to review the Citizen Eco-Drive Men's Silvertone and Black World Time A-T Watch. Bold, aggressive, and dimensional, Citizen® introduces its newest timepiece within the World Time A-T family. Featuring atomic timekeeping technology with synchronized time adjustment available in 26 time zones. With black leather strap. perpetual calendar, dual time 12/24-hour time, alarm and power reserve are also added features to this upgraded timepiece.

Citizen Men's Eco-Drive Silvertone

This watch comes with attractive looks from its black straps to the black stainless steel bezel and face. The white color of the numbers contrasts against the black color, giving it a professional look. It does not matter in what time zone you are. With the Citizen Eco-Drive Men's Silvertone and Black World Time A-T Watch you don’t have to worry since it comes equipped with 26 different time zones. It does automatically updates itself depending on the time zone in which you are, although there is also a manual option. One has total control over summer time in each timezone, with the option to use auto settings according to the time signal or manual for areas that don't use summer time or if the time signal is not available. For the manual procedure, you pull out the crown and rotate to move the second hand to a different time zone. Upon pushing the crown back in, the watch adjusts the day/time.

This watch is perfect to use, even in the dark. It does not come equipped with a back light, but it comes with luminous coating on dial scales and hands (minutes and hours) that provide illumination. The luminous coating absorbs light and when you are in dark areas, it illuminates. This is especially important for a dive watch because as you go deeper into the sea, it tends to become darker and therefore harder to read the watch. Not being able to read the watch can prove to be the biggest mistake of your life. This is because a divers life depends on the dive watch when they are in the water. With the watch, you can determine how much oxygen you have left in the tank since you get to time the amount of time you spend in the water.

The watch comes with a solar rechargeable battery and this means that you can get it charged even when there is no power. The watch also comes with a sapphire glass that is scratch resistant. This means that the screen will always be clear as you use it. Now, it is important to note that using the watch for the first time can be a little complicated for some. That is the reason that divers are advised to practice using the watch so that they can get a hang of it before using it. You wouldn’t want to go diving deep only to realize that you don’t know how to control certain features. The watch comes with a manual, although you can also download one online.

Best BB Gun Rifle

Best BB Gun Rifle Of 2019

BB guns are also known as varmint guns, air guns or pellet guns. They are a type of an air gun it is not a toy gun as it is usually presumed but rather it is an air gun that is high powered and is used to fire spherical projectiles that are normally about the same size and is normally similar to shot pellets. BB guns propel projectiles in form of compressed air as opposed to firearms which use propellant charge. The best BB gun rifles are made with a barrel which has a bore and caliber of about 4.5mm.

Pellets that are used in the best BB guns are made of lead or lead alloy so that they are soft in the bore and not tight. The fact that they are soft means that they can fit into the bore as they are fired. Steel is not commonly used in making the pellets because it is hard and hence won’t give the accuracy in shooting rifles as compared to lead. BB guns are made to be used for training, target practice and in some cases pest control.

Since BB guns are associated to be toy guns, most people underestimate the fact that they can be dangerous. There has been a reported case of a BB gun causing death and many reported cases of the gun causing injuries. If the gun has a high velocity muzzle then it can cause injury and in extreme cases death if it is very close.

Unlike other types of guns, the maximum distance that a BB air gun can go is an average of 366m though there are BB guns that can even go further for a distance of up to 460m but they are rare. Air guns are rated according to muzzle velocity. Muzzle velocity is the speed of the projectile to the target. Air force and BB guns are rated according to the force they use which is measured in feet per second and it’s normally in a range of between 300fps and 1000fps.

BB Gun Laws and Requirements?

The fact that BB guns are presumed to be toy guns, many people expect it to have an orange tip to define it as a toy. The federal law requires that all toy guns or imitation guns to have an orange tip to show that they do not contain explosive material but studies show that the law exempts air guns such as BB guns from having the orange tip.

Generally in order to use a BB gun one does not need a license as they do not exceed the muzzle energy limit which is 12ft.b for air rifles and 6ft.b for the case of pistols. If it is more than that they a firearms certificate is normally required. There are however some places that requires one to have a license in order to possess a BB gun such as New York city.

According to the law, visible carrying around of any firearms whether it’s original or fake is illegal. They need something like a casing when in public areas.

Types of BB guns

There are different types of BB guns and they are all defined by what they use. The main types are CO2 BB gun and the pneumatic bb air rifle. CO2 BB gun uses a pre-charged and pressurized co2 cylinder. It is the pressure that propels the projectile of the gun. This therefore demands a constant supply of co2 canisters which might be expensive.

Under the pneumatic bb air rifle, there are pump up and the pre-charged variety. Pump up works by pumping up rifles to compress the air that will be used to propel the projectile. Pre charged operates from a reserve of pressured air.

The best BB gun rifles are those that can hit the target well and can function well. Below are examples of some of the best BB gun rifles in the market:

They also liked increased user speeds in areas that there was no wireless coverage. Many agreed that it did what it was supposed to do which is increasing internet connection where there was no coverage perfectly. However there are amazon users who still complained of its speed and lack of consistency in connection. There is an inconsistency in terms of the connection is on and off and thus one has to turn on and off the router from time to time inorder to get connection. Low speeds reported are probably due to the fact that it can do speeds of 300mbps which can get slower since it is an extender and gets between the main connection and the end user. The lack of consistency in connection might be a factor that is contributing to its slow speeds. There are those who complained of problems in connecting to the network after updating the firmware. This might be due to the fact that there are those who go ahead to update the firmware without downloading the manual and understanding it well. There are some complains that the extender does not work with any kind of router as there are claims that the extender connects but does not do anything. There are those who felt they were misled by the set up instructions on the box since it limited them in doing a lot of things. Some complained that it was hard to tell when one has a good connection. This is why it is important to read the instructions from the site to know how to set a different SSID which can help in determining a slow connection. From the reviews, the extender did not work well with some devices. Basically this might be due to some settings on the device which may limit its usage with the device.


NETGEAR AC1200 WiFi Range Extender

NETGEAR AC1200 WiFi Range Extender Review

In this Netgear AC1200 review, we will examine everything from speed, to distance as well as setting it up and user reviews.

The WIFI band is dual with speeds of 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz.

netgear ac1200 review

It has universal compatibility and thus can work well with any standard router or gateway. It can also be used across different kinds of devices.

One of the advantages of the Netgear AC1200 extender is the fact that one can get a Wi-Fi analytics app for Netgear devices that can help to optimize the internet connection since one can test the Wi-Fi strength in different locations to know the strongest and the weakest coverage. It can be used to check the network statues and monitor signal strength once the extender has been installed. The app can also help in identification of Wi-Fi channels with the strongest and channels with the least traffic interference. One can track the speeds and performance to know if there are any improvements.

Setting up the Netgear AC1200

The setup is however a process and following the right procedure will ensure that one gets the most out of the device. Just like the Netgear AC 750, there are two ways which can be used to set up the device, a quick set up and the AP mode. To set up the device, plug in the device and wait for it to turn green, this will take several minutes. Go to the settings of the wireless device that you expect to connect to the network and after some time the device will recognize the router name plus a suffix ext. You will then choose the Wi-Fi connection that you use and put the same password as the one you use on your router. You will then be redirected to website for setting up the extender which will take you to the gateway of the extender which should be something like 192.168.1.250. On entering the IP you will answer a few questions which will help you in setting a new SSID of the extender. One should however not that the new SSID is normally created by the extender and thus should not worry about creating new SSIDs for new networks. You can only access the site with the IP address on a mobile device. After setting up the extender, unplug it and take it to a location which has low coverage and would want to boost its connectivity. You can identify the area with low coverage using the App if you are not very sure. You will go to settings of the device you want to use, choose the Wi-Fi connection put a password and you are good to go. The devices that are closer to the extender will receive a stronger network as opposed to devices that are further. You can only connect to the network using the SSID of the extender and not of the router. At this point the app can be used to optimize the connection and find the right position for the extender.

As mentioned earlier on, an AP mode can be used in setting up the AC1200 extender. In this case an Ethernet cable is connected to the extender device of which upon connection one will get a set of instructions which will be used in the set up. This may lead to two Aps in the same network with different SSIDs which is not limited to using one password.

Since an Ethernet cable is mostly used in the setup of the extender, one might think that they have to leave the cable on the router. This is however not true. Ethernet cable is used only in the initial set up to help the router identify the device and once the setup is complete the extender can be used anywhere in the house and does not have to be connected to an Ethernet cable.

Netgear AC1200 User Review

The extender is quite popular and this can be gathered by the number of reviewers on amazon who mostly gave a positive review mean that it is doing well in the market. The main reasons amazon users liked the device is because of fast speeds, more coverage and value for money. For many it served the purpose for which it was bought. There is however those who had complain with the device. Some found the installation process to be long and felt it would be made simpler. There are those who had perfect connection on mobile devices but get unreliable connection when it came to other devices especially desktop computers. There are complains of the extender lights being on but it does not connect to the network as well as the signal being on and off.
