  1. Introduction

  2. WiFi performance is great in my house, when I'm in the main living area. WiFi performance gets spotty when I head out to my front or back porch. I've lived with it, until I installed a Ring Video Doorbell for another tech review. It worked ok, except that the performance was poor when answering a doorbell ring or viewing motion. That's because the Ring Video Doorbell is three floors away from my modem.

  15. Setup

  16. Setup was easy.
  17. I initially thought I'd go through the WPS install. WPS stands for WiFi protected setup. It allows novices to install things without having thengs get too complicated.
  18. To start the set up, you plug the extender in, near your existing modem.
  19. The WPS setup intails pressing the WPS button on the extender and then pressing the WPS button on the extender on your modem. I followed the steps to do this, and then connected to the new Netgear extended network, which brought me into the steps for Smart Setup. So instead of doing WPS setup, I followed the on screen Smart Setup.
