This item is a dual-purpose device. It will work as a router (if you have a modem) and it also works as a signal extender to increase the range of your wifi signal beyond the limits of your router. You use it as either/or (not as a router AND range extender. The price at local ISP for same item was $100, this was $70. It is rated the #1 of top 10 2016 routers. It claims 3-minute setup time, but I doubt it took that long. A touch screen guides you through the setup steps. Within minutes I had it connected as an extender to our primary wifi router, then, voila, I was back on line. It rebroadcasts the wifi signal to allow for a strong connection in a separate building from our primary router, which is also an Almond. So far, it seems to have fixed all my internet connection problems, so well that I have even resubscribed to Netflix, now that I can stream again. It is a cheap and simple fix to what had been a several-months-long vexing problem every time I tried to connect to the internet.
