Range. Can never have enough of that thing. In the battles of old, when two knights fought, the one with the longer sword would usually win. These days, combat is no different: if your weapon can shoot farther than your opponent’s, he’s probably in for a rough ride.

While Netgear knows the importance of range, routers aren’t exactly used for bloody battles, so figuring out how to add more range to their broadband devices may have been tricky early on. “Wait…” said a board member. “I know: let’s make a Wi-Fi range extender! After all, who doesn’t need Wi-Fi?”

And thus, the Netgear EX6200 AC1200 WiFi Range Extender was born. Well, not exactly, because this model is a far cry from the massive and largely useless range extenders that were being churned out early on. That’s not to say it’s invisible, though.

The first thing you’ll notice when you unpack this device is that it’s a standalone gadget very much reminiscent of your router. Yes, that means your desk is going to be getting a lot clunkier, even though Netgear did their best to make up for that with superb aesthetics.

We’d wager you were expecting something like an additional antenna or plug when you first heard the words “range extender”. Upon seeing this high-tech gizmo, you might have felt terrified. Heck, maybe even threatened. And, without the Netgear EX6200 manual on the ready, you were probably correct.

Connecting the EX6200 to your router can be a challenge in itself. The manufacturer didn’t exactly make it intuitive. And, once you’ve done that, you have to worry about setting the two devices up to work together without sabotaging each other. Unless you follow the link to our Netgear EX6200 user manual, that is. As soon as you open our fancy instructions, your worries will be dispelled and you’ll soon have more Wi-Fi range than the telecom company wants you to: http://sharedf.com/documentation/netgear-ex6200-owners-instruction-manual/
