Introducing Netgear Nighthawk EX7000 AC1900 Wi-Fi Range Extender

Netgear Nighthawk EX7000 AC1900 Wi-Fi Range Extender 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 is equipped with five gigabit-Ethernet ports, a Wireless Protected Setup (WPS) button, a Reset button, and a Power switch, all of which are located on the back of the chassis.

A USB 3.0 port is positioned on the front, and the top of the extender has nine LED status indicators (one for each band, one for each LAN port, a device to extender LED, and a USB activity LED). The extender can be positioned horizontally or vertically using the included vertical mount stand.

Netgear Nighthawk EX7000 AC1900 Wi-Fi Range Extender is much bigger than a typical plug-in range extender.

Measuring 1.2 by 9.9 by 6.9 inches (HWD) and sporting a shiny, black finish and three adjustable antennas, it could easily be mistaken for a full-blown router, which means it will probably stand out no matter where you put it.

Managing Netgear Nighthawk EX7000 AC1900 Wi-Fi Range Extender is easy, thanks to the Netgear genie, a user-friendly Web-based management interface.

The genie opens to a status page that displays signal strength for both bands (green is best, amber is good, red is poor), the firmware version, and connection information for each band, including SSID, channel, region, and Wi-Fi speed. Pressing the Smart Setup button takes you to a screen where you can configure Netgear Nighthawk EX7000 AC1900 Wi-Fi Range Extender as an extender or access point.

On the left side of the page are tabs for Settings, Firmware Update, Do More, and Logout. The Settings section is where you go to change Wi-Fi properties, such as SSID (network name), channel, speed, and password.

You can also assign a static IP or use DHCP. The Connected Devices page displays information about wired and wireless devices connected to the extender, including the IP address and MAC address.

On the Other Settings page, you can back up your Wi-Fi settings, restore previous settings, reset the device to its factory defaults, and restart the extender.

The Do More section contains an Access Schedule page that lets you determine what time of day users can connect to the extender and a Wi-Fi Coverage page that allows you to chose one of four wireless output power settings (25, 50, 75, and 100 percent) depending on your coverage area.

Netgear's FastLane technology lets you configure the extender to use one band to connect to your router while saving the other band for wireless network traffic. Lastly, the USB Port page is where you go to enable Media Server and TiVo support.

Here you can also enable printer sharing and file sharing for connected USB devices.

Netgear Nighthawk EX7000 AC1900 Wi-Fi Range Extender gives you the throughput and range performance necessary to provide robust wireless coverage to every corner of your building.

It's a breeze to install and offers enough wired LAN ports to connect to gaming consoles, HDTVs, and other networked devices. It also offers access control scheduling and FastLane technology that let you optimize your bandwidth by directing wireless traffic to a specific band.

Netgear Nighthawk EX7000 AC1900 Wi-Fi Range Extender is a genie.

If you think it, it’s probably true,
