NOTE:  The maximum distance or range is only achieved if the device is set up in an environment that is devoid of any interference.  The router being used with the range extender can also affect the range that it can provide.  For example, using Linksys RE6500 with a Wireless-G router would make the range extender operate on a Wireless-G speed.
