„What is Amazon Echo?

Amazon Echo is designed around your voice. It’s always on—just ask for information, music, news, weather, and more. Echo begins working as soon as it hears you say the wake word, „Alexa.“ It’s also an expertly-tuned speaker that can fill any room with immersive sound. “

Netgear wifi booster WN1000RP

I haven’t post pictures of the unpacking of my iPad Air last year therefore the pictures of the Netgear WN1000RP hadn’t been posted too.

So now I was able to write a 3 month review of my expierence with the Netgear wifi range extender. The setup is as easy as it can be.

All parameters can be edited via a webpage and after a reset everything works fine without need of further assistence.
