Mikele Posted August 9, 2016 Report Share Posted August 9, 2016 This post may get a little long, so ill give you jist of it first. JEFA Tech WIFI repeater. In my experience it is junk...Now for the why. This isn't met to knock or sling mud, just some fyi from first hand use. I bought this gadget to extend the park wifi range. it works by picking up a weak signal and repeating as a stronger signal. So, in parks where you may be to far for a good signal this is met to "grab" that weak signal and make it usable. I have been next to a WIFI tower and have only been using as secure connection for my devices. We then moved to a new site with a tower next to us again. YAY for us. well that tower went down. I thought no biggie i got this. Not so. After all this gadget is suppose to find the other signals. There are 5 Towers in a direct sight line from me only a max of about 50/75 yards or so away from me . I am able to to scan with 2 smart phones, amazon fire stick, our laptop and a tablet. All of these devices see multiple WIFI signals, but most of em are to weak to use reliably. The repeater however will NOT see them. Even with the outside antenna connected it still doesn't get the number of signals the other devices see. I emailed the company and they were willing to send a new unit at no cost and even sent return postage. Very helpfull. but the new one is no better. After spending 7/8 hours trying to get it to work, i couldnt get this thing to work. I could stand beside the outdoor antenna with a smart phone and connect to the internet, whereas the repeater would not. SO i called asking about a refund and they denied the request. Reason being i had purchased it 6 months ago. Well, thats fine as they have that choice, but for the 6 months i havent needed it. Then when i do need it, it wont work. So be warned or take it with a grain of salt, but im not happy with this purchase at all Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
