I've heard some mixed reviews on Amped products. What actual products do you use and what are you opinions of them in regards to security, speed, range, and consistency?

Dual stream (300Mbit) is nice. Looks great for adding wifi to your existing wired network. The high gain antennae and high power radios are really good for range - one of Amped's strong points.

Looking at the dashboard it looks like it does not have a repeater (wireless range extend) or adapter (wireless->Ethernet) function though.

Note: The AP20000G is NOT a router. It is a High Power Dual Band Wi-Fi Access Point that attaches to your existing router.

So, what's the difference between an access point and a range extender?

I just bought an R20000G router which worked great for one week. Then, it's range wasn't so good anymore. Not even close to what Amped Wireless advertises. I am trying to figure out whether to add an AP or an RE.

An access point is wired to your router and a range extender is a wireless connection to the router. In either case, you will be connecting to a new SSID set by the AP or RE. If you have the means of wiring an AP to your router, that is the way to go. Otherwise, you will need to go wireless and use a RE.

For example, if you have your wireless router mounted in the garage and the signal can't reach your rear deck, you can either run network cabling through your attic and walls and connect it to the AP or you can find a central location, in the house between the garage and deck, and wirelessly connect the RE to the router.

An AP or RE will not replace the router's wireless signal. You will be adding additional, stronger signals. Thus, you should be able to see the signals from the router and AP/RE.

I went through the same technical garbage before I learned the difference. It would seem the whole intend is to confuse and dumbfound people. When in fact, they both are the same with the only difference being wired or wirelessly connected to a router.

Hope I helped.
