You can think of the Netgear WN3500RP WiFi boosters as a connection up, offering not only the ability to extend your existing wireless network, but also the ability to connect numerous devices to your network with ease, as it’s equipped with USB, LAN and audio ports, allowing you to directly plug hard drives, printers and audio systems into your network.
This Netgear WiFi booster has internal antennas and can either be plugged in to an AC outlet directly or setup with its stand and own power cord.
While the Netgear WN3500RP is one of the more flexible WiFi boosters on the market, it’s performance is pretty mediocre, clocking in at just 168.1 Mbps and having a range of up to 120 feet.
Despite being one of the more flexible WiFi boosters currently available, its performance is mediocre, clocking in at 168.1 Mbps at a range of 120 feet. However, if being able to connect an array of different devices to your network is more important to you than raw performance, then this WiFi booster could be just what you’re looking for.

Just plug it and start using it!
Great gadget, we have 3 floors and a side annexe on a different power circuit. Therefore, our internet signal was not strong enough to reach the top floor or anexe. With this device I can just plug it in the second floor or unplug it and plug it again near the anexe and it just works. No need to readjust anything, which is a bonus. The signal is stronger than with my normal router. Very easy to use, very neat and a life changer as I can now work on my computer in my office or get wifi on my IPad & phone when I am bed, so no more nasty ‘you have used all your data this month’ from my O2 mobile provider.
Best piece of tech I have bought had it now just over 2 years no problems so far,excellent range used to extend the wifi to the back of the house on both 2ghz and 5ghz (modem at the front) it mimics the virgin superhub2 password so no messing about when logging on,just a simple push of the wps button on both items connected in less then a minute.used daily by my son(back bedroom) no complaints so far.
Brilliant. Despite reservations prior to ordering due to mixed reviews, I am very happy that I invested in this item. I have paired it with my Virgin Super Hub to fill in a couple of dead spots caused by a series of solid walls in my house. The instructions were easy to understand and it paired quickly. In the former dead spots, the WiFi readings on my phone formerly read either ‘weak’ or ‘fair’. Now they both read ‘Very Strong’. Early days but I believe this purchase to be a good investment.
