they work differently then range extenders do. They plug into your router instead of repeating the signal does. They have amplifiers on them while traditional high gain antennas are passive. Some of those are universal and others only work for a few routers. And yes, Amped has one! http://www.ampedwireless.com/products/sb1000.html
Awesome! Their stuff is very smooth to setup. it's basically a full power access point that doesn't need a LAN cable to the router. About the LED light... hmm never noticed that on the SR20000G... it prolly did it differently.... oh well
with the SR20000G you can be wired and wireless for setup.... the initial setup has to be done with the wired connection, as it has to give it a DHCP IP to configure. it relies on the router or access point that you are extending for that after the setup. When the SR20G would loose connectivity with the R10 I couldn't get an IP address from the extender. I purposely did screwed up a few times for the review to see how good it is at fixing itself and it was pretty easy to get stuff back to normal. It actually was able to operate on 20Mhz mode while the router was in 40Mhz mode as well.
well, Ive got some wi-fi analyser apps on my S3 to make sure i pick the right channel, got some 9dBi Antennas from TP-Link from a left over project and generally speaking I get about 60-70% signal from where i sit so I dont think i'll have much of a problem.
Im trying to find the spec/datasheet on how powerful my current edixmax repeater/extender is so i can compare them but i cant seem to dig up any solid info on broadcast strength and stuff like that. as for the SR20000G, Do want, but its way out of my price range - not that i need half of the features on it that are being advertised.
thing is you have to have a stable signal to repeat a stable signal. also you gotta make sure you don't communicate on a congested channel as well. this goes for all brands and not just amped. repeaters are very missunderstood devices. i got way better coverage with it then my netgear (however I tested the SR20000G and not the SR10000) and the coverage was awesome.
They are on pretty equal footing honestly. Top speed is only about 15MPH difference and what the Spitfire has in climb the Mustang makes up in Dive and endurance (range). In all honestly they were built for two VERY different jobs. One was an escort. The other an interceptor. P38L would kick both of them in the nuts anyway so what does it matter? lol
