Late to the party, but... I've used this technology (actually the RE450,
which is the AC1250 model) at a couple of customer sites to extend a
network until they could put in wiring for a new Access Point. Simple
and effective. Also has Ethernet jack if you want to place anything else
locally; could also be used to place an AP temporarily, with the RE's
own network off or on dummy SSID.

Thanks for thinking about this, Philippe. I was hoping to avoid a complete
redo of all devices hooked to to wifi due to time constraints. I stumbled into
a brand new relatively inexpensive Mesh extender.
$49 bucks or so at B&H --more than 3 times the cost of the N300 gizmo but no
need to worry about 2 separate logins. I think my current modem/router is past
its sell -by date. I don't know much about the optical connection business. I
suspect the setup will be more complicated than it looks for a non-network savy
person. I determined after a bit of research that debugging my Vera controller
wifi issues would burn hours--tech support had it all done in 40 minutes and knew
all the usual culprit complications. I was correct in my assessment. I don't
know how they make any money on such devices that are so finicky to get set up in a
stable fashion given the tech support time burned.
