Short non technical answer, no it probably will not cut them in half. Its going to aggregate between the bands. You wont get full speeds but you should probably get more than half.



There is no way to manage the extended network from looking at their app, so I am going to say no this is not what you want.



Probably wont cut it in half, its dependent on number of bands and CPU speeds to determine that. Also dependent on how back haul is handled. I am guessing it will provide more than half.



500ft away probably not (almost 99.9% sure), that distance is way to far unless you get a signal currently close to the guest house from your existing router and you have a power plug somewhere in between the two points you can plug this into.



Yes this would work for that. You will plug this in somewhere on the 1st floor or in an area between the router and that upstairs bedroom and use the phone app to set up the extender. It will create a new network which will use its own name but it should use your existing password. Your devices will be able to jump between the extender and the home router depending on signal strength and how they determine the connection quality when they are communicating with the ext/router. Its really easy and straight forward to setup if you can follow the easy diagrams.

For those range extender, make sure to schedule them to turn off periodically. I scheduled mine to turn off from 1-1:30am every day.

would this work as a cheap way to create a "guest" network? My old router doesn't have that option and I wanted to limit the traffic of a few things to a "guest" network

Please note that this does not support Access point mode.

I have ethernet cable from main router downstairs which I would feed to an extender to get wifi upstairs

I'm ignorant when it comes to this technology. Would this device strengthen the WI-FI signal in my house? how exactly does this thing work? WiFi in my upstairs bedroom comes in kinda weak. is this what i need to boost the signal or should I be looking for some other technology? Thanks to those kind souls who would share knowledge freely.

2 x ant only so probably. Not 4x4 mimo but those cost more than double usually.

If there's nothing BTW the extender and the guest house. It should help. Any walls or even tree is going to cut the range.
