Nighthawk AC190 WiFi Range Extender EX7000.
Boost your existing WiFi.
We have an amazing router, the NETGEAR Nighthawk X6 Tri-Band WiFi Router and let me tell you, it is a beast. Since our family is digital, there’s often a lot of usage going on at the same time. That sometimes leads to a lot of people connecting to the same WiFi connection.
NETGEAR sent me the Nighthawk WiFi Range Extender to improve our overall connection and experience! To say that I was excited is an understatement. I was ready to see how this baby would maximize our WiFi experience in every corner of our house!
As soon as it arrived, I opened it up and wanted to get it set-up as quickly as possible. Luckily, it is very easy to set-up and it is as simple as plugging it in and connecting to your router. You add it to your router’s 5 GHz band (not all routers have it) then push the WPS button and the LED lights will tell you if it’s connected.
Now all you have to do is choose a location where you think a stronger connection is necessary. Then all you have to do is connect your devices to the extender. You use the new extended network name and your WiFi router password to connect. You’ll be on amazing WiFi in seconds! If it is easier for you, use NETGEAR Genie and it will do the easy setup for you.
You can place it on the mount stand or place horizontally without the mount. The antennas can be adjusted accordingly.
It supports 802.11ac Wi-Fi, uses a 1GHz Broadcom BCM 4708 dual-core processor and is capable of speeds of up to 1,900Mbps (600Mbps on the 2.4GHz band and 1,300Mbps on the 5GHz band). It has 5 gigabit-Ethernet ports, a Wireless Protected Setup (WPS) button, a Reset button and a Power switch, which you’ll find on the back of its frame. In the front you’ll find a USB 3.0 port and the LED lights.
The Nighthawk AC190 WiFi Range Extender is bigger than most plug-in WiFi extenders but, it isn’t without looking gorgeous. Yes, hardware can be gorgeous and this one is. In fact, I love how it closely and very much resembles my Nighthawk router. It’s definitely a beaut that delivers.
The Netgear Nighthawk AC1900 Wi-Fi Range Extender (EX7000) has the range performance necessary to provide an incredible and strong wireless coverage to every inch of your home. Whether it is a big or small home, you’re covered. It’s easy to install and has enough wired LAN ports to connect all of your gaming consoles, HDTVs and most of your other tech toys! I love that it has access control scheduling and FastLane technology that let you optimize your bandwidth by directing wireless traffic to a specific band.
Most importantly, I am glad that we are able to amp up our mobile connection game and get maximum WiFi coverage throughout our entire house.
You can purchase the Netgear Nighthawk Wi-Fi Range Extender AC1900 on Amazon for $165.85. It’s worth every penny since you will be covered no matter how you use your WiFi connection. In our home, I am always connected via my laptop and mobile device and the kids have their tablets and Dara has his mobile and game consoles. There’s nothing like having a dependable connection whenever you need it.
I definitely recommend this for any family or home that uses a lot of devices over a wireless network. Make sure you to head over to NETGEAR for more information and if you’d like more information on this WiFi Extender, go here.
