Netis WF2414 Conclusion
The Netis WF2414 is competitively priced, that’s for sure – $14.99 at time of writing. For a product this cheap, it can’t be all that good, right? Erm… wrong! If you want to do the basics, like Internet browse, file share, and email etc – this little gem does the job perfectly. Ok, it doesn’t have the 5GHz frequency or have QoS, but to be honest, these features aren’t compulsory or even beneficial for a lot of people.
The WF2414 is very simple to get up and running. The supplied CD is intuitive and only takes a few moments to go through the steps to get you on your way to Internet connection and adding wireless clients. The WPS function works very well, making client connection very straight-forward. Within the menu system is the option to use the Repeater function. Pairing with other wireless routers is completed in a few clicks and works well if you need to extend or boost your wireless coverage into an area of the office, or home that was either previously unreachable, or was a blackspot in your wireless coverage area.
For a simple, cheap solution for your wireless and Internet access – you can’t go wrong with the Netis WF2414.
