TRENDnet AC1200 WiFi Range Extender, Gigabit, MIMO, Dual Band, Beamforming, TEW-822DRE
A WiFi repeater or extension is used to extend the coverage area of your Wi-Fi network. This works by receiving your existing Wi-Fi signal, amplifying it, and then radiating the extended signal. With a Wi-Fi repeater, you can effectively double the coverage area of your Wi-Fi network – reach the corners of your home or office, separate floors, or even extend to your backyard.TRENDnet Extender Gigabit Beamforming TEW 822DRE
The Best Wi-Fi Developer – What Is a Wireless Extension?
Wi-Fi extensions are simply connected to your existing Wi-Fi connection and a relay to provide a stronger signal in the widest range.
These units will not reach wire-bound connections, nor will they improve the overall network speed. However, if you simply want to make sure that you can get a signal on the top floor of your home in general, they are the cheapest and easiest option. Also note that there are different nominal speeds for Wi-Fi N and AC ranging from the basic 300Mbps from N to the path to routers that provide 1,900Mbps and more.
The long and short, however, is that if you use something older than a Wi-Fi N-compatible router, you'll be better off replacing it. Even routers, which are available for ISPs free of charge, have been released in the past years, so that all connection problems can be solved simply by a free upgrade.TRENDnet AC1200 WiFi Range Extender, Gigabit, MIMO, Dual Band, Beamforming, TEW-822DRE
