" ...  Then I plugged the WiFi dot extender to my other end of the house and it got added to the network automatically ... Now coming to speed, I was easily getting on a average 95 Mbps on a 100 Mbps line in my main hall where I placed the router. ... I would say that is normal for any router since I was testing the speed in the room where I placed the router, ... but I was really surprised when I went to the other end of the house where I placed the WiFi dot extender, even there I got around 70 to 80 Mbps speed ... This is what I really liked about, my previous extender not give such speeds, it gave just 15 to 20 Mbps at my other end of house even with extenders ... The best part of the router is the WiFi network ssid's, usual router have 2 network for 2.4 and 5Ghz network. ... but with this router it has only one network id which has both 2.4 and 5Ghz and device connects automatically to the best available network ... I used to restart my old router once a day, but this router was stable and it did not require any restart more than a week ... you mobile force connects to a 2.4 Ghz network in case you want to configure any 2.4ghz smart devices  ...  "
