Diamond Dual-Band 2.4GHz/5.0GHz Wireless 802.11n Range Extender Conclusion:
Diamond may have made its name as a graphics card manufacturer, but it has a whole lot more to offer. The Diamond Dual-Band Wireless Extender didn't only provide extended range, but was also easy to set up and quick to go right out of the box. I honestly feel that even my techno-tard mother could successfully set this up without much help, if any at all. Don't get me wrong, my mother is wonderful, but beyond just using a computer, it's not for her. I think I could go as far as to say my grandmother would be able to handle this for the most part as well. It is just simple, and the instructions are very clear as what to do. I couldn't be happier with a product right out of the box.
The indicators on the extender itself were really helpful in finding a good location to place it in the house. It was clear when plugged in that it was a bit out of range from the router and couldn't provide the best signal. It didn't take long to find a place where it sent out a strong signal and provided a much larger region of access. I used to have trouble connecting from the garage while working on projects; now it's not an issue. There are a few cheaper dual-band wireless extenders on the market, but quite frankly, I feel there are far fewer simple plug-and-play setups as this. The Diamond Dual-Band Wireless Extender is definitely worth your time if you are trying to get your signal further.
