My Amped Wireless Range Extender has worked very well (without any problems) since I installed it nearly 4 years ago, but after recently changed Internet service providers, it has failed. I called for help and Andrew (#108) was extremely knowledgeable and thorough in getting my device back in working order.
This router performes very well as a wireless unit. great range and outstanding speed. I am getting 250 Mbs with WPA2 security on and it peaks my 250 Mbs cable speed easily. The feature set is very weak and using a usb drive nearly impossible except for sharing music. Can only connect via ftp or through media player making it very difficult to map a drive and use it as a backup or to share non media files with others in the home. Just purchase a network drive with an rj45 connector and forget the usb drive. Print server works fine via usb and is simple to setup. simply install the small software applet and your connected. Regarding opening/closing ports it is overly complex
I had my base W/Less service changed and given a new modem, The new modem did not have enough strength to get to the other side of the house so I bought a Wi-Fi Extended Amped Wireless. I am not good at the written directions given me so I called the help number and the technician me up and running with the extender in less than 5 minutes and now I have great wi-fi service all thru the house. Great tech support.
We had a few dead spots in our home and several areas where the signals were weak. With the amped wireless booster, we have strong Internet signals everywhere. This has made a huge difference in Internet speed for devices that didn't have strong signals before. I even have our wireless printer connected to amped wireless and people can print from anywhere in the house (we have two-story home).
