I supposed it depends on your smartphone. Mine is a Samsung Galaxy II with Straight talk. It works flawlessly. Even if you have your data program on, it will automatically switch to Wi-Fi when you have Wi-Fi turned on in your smartphone.

Yes. Mine is broadcasting a LinkSys signal. Brand of router doesn't matter. It works best with b/g/n signals. Most of the new ones are "n" now (that's the fast one that you need for good video).

This is a relay or repeater device, so it depends upon where you can put it. Essentially, you want to position it halfway between your WiFi computer and the WiFi router, and that might be in someone else's RV. Used inside your own trailer it won't help much at all.

Question

Will this extend both the 2.4 and 5 ghz signal?

I set up a separate video streaming account on our Netgear N600 as instructed by the instructions for better video streaming performance. However, the 5 ghz signal does not travel as far as the 2.4 signal does in our house so my video device can't pick it up. Will this help?

Sorry, but this unit is 2.4 GHz only... if you will check the 'docs' link on the Wal-mart page, it will confirm this.

It will help if you can position it somewhere near the halfway point between your video device and primary WiFi router.

answer 3
I have the 2.4 and 5 ghz signals on my router too and it picked both of them up, though I only connect to the 5 ghz. Didn't see a need to extend the 2.4. It's a single band, so it won't do both signals at the same time. You'd have to pick.

This is what you want to get the signal to your TV. That's what I'm using it for.

Yes, it will work with any wireless device including the Fire as I have one and use it with this device.

Attach the extender to your main computer with an ethernet cable. Log into the Extender by using the info printed on the back of the extender. Connect to your wireless connection , follow a few directions to set up security, give the connection a password and the wireless signal (if you go with the default) will have the same name as your regular wireless signal but will have an "_ext" tagged onto the end of the name. Log out, disconnect the ethernet cable and then set up the device in a logical place where it can pick up the wireless signal but can best relay to the area you are lacking connectivity.

Any device that connects to a wireless signal will connect to this.

It is great.
