Are these extenders good for all modem/routers or just fellow netgear products?

How are these in general? I just set up my daughter with a desktop to play games and couldnt get ethernet over to it. Meantime I took a spare linksys E1000, set to bridge mode and have that connected to my Asus on the 2.4ghz channel. Shes already having lag.
I was looking at this as I didnt want to spend too much initially as I'm in an apartment building and hear performance can be random.

Negative. Yes, there are 2 pieces in the kit, but the kit is 1. The rebate is good for 2 kits ...therefore 4 pieces. Newegg has the wrong info on their product page ...rebate is good for 2 "kits".

I've used this exact model more times I can count for friends, family, and customers. They work fantastic!!!

It almost eliminates the lag that comes from wireless bridging you're currently experiencing. Depending on distance between the adapters and your existing network speeds, you will more than likely get a 10-40% reduction of speed. That's usually not too bad since lag is not occurring.

Main things to keep in mind, 1) do NOT plug these into any surge protectors or power strips. Optimally they should plug directly into a power outlet. 2) The power outlets used for these should be on the same circuit coming from your power panel. So if you're trying to use these to expand your wired/wireless network into a room that has been converted/remodeled or is an add-on to the original construction of the building, you're going to have problems and these will probably not work (I've ran into this more than once).

And to answer someone else's question, this will work with all brands. They just work better with Netgear equipment when UPnP is enabled. At this price, it's a SD!!!

From rebate terms:

submit two rebates per person, address, and household. Limit one
rebate submission per envelope unless otherwise stated.


I'd interpret that to mean 2 rebates of this item per person.

Which model, this netgear or the TP-Link i linked?
As for wiring, I am a bit of a noob in that regards. I figured it wouldnt work off a surge so that shouldnt be too much of an issue. I am concerned with the wiring as more than half of the outlets had reversed polarity. I would lean towards older style as almost all the outlets are only on one side, I had to extension cord + surge protect to plug my living room TV in.
The wireless extending feature I'm not that concerned about. I have my main Asus RT-N66U and a spare N10P, Linksys E1000 and N120 or something. Not to mention a bunch of 5 port switches. I can crimp my own ethernet and have spools at work. I would just have to make it very ugly with the room layout.

if I buy 2 kits, can I connect 3 devices via wired (one connected to the modem, the others remotely placed for devices)? (been watching these deals on the sidelines for a long time but haven't ever purchased.)
