I got the range extender last time it was on sale, and I've had nothing but trouble with it. can't really even get it to work. It's sitting in its box in my closet. :/

In addition to your troubles, it is worth noting that this only has a 100Mb uplink port so one will never achieve 450Mb.

Get an apple airport express or extreme off eBay. Works better together.

I like the concept of a range extender but I am not sure how they really work. Don't they get their own SSID and I would need to setup my wifi devices to connect to both my current SSID and the new one for the extender? If that's the case then I might just be better off setting up one of my extra routers in the dead zone. I just didn't want to have to tell my devices to drop the weak signal SSID and connect to the stronger signal SSID.

If I'm wrong then I'll pick up the E1 and give it a shot.

The Edimax I got from last time drops signal and reconnects when it feels like it... but it does reconnect within 10 seconds flat. I use it for Netflix on my HDTV and the video stream doesn't degrade and I don't get any errors on the TV itself. For gaming these drops would be a dealbreaker. The extender range is ok but connected devices have a slight lag when clicking web links. Mediocre deal on the Edimax.
