7 of the best Wi-Fi extenders for increasing your wireless range



For those looking for more than just a Wi-Fi extender, delivers. It also acts as a media server and an access point, offering additional value to the end user. While testing shows it performs very well in terms of 5GHz performance, its 2.4GHz performance is somewhat lagging. It uses AC1200 technology for increased speed, range, and reliability, and is backward compatible with older wireless systems.
There is a power status indicator and an internet status indicator on the front of the device, so you can easily see if your connection is ready to go. On the back of the unit are four gigabit Ethernet ports, a Reset button, a Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) button, a Power button, and a USB port. While having a USB port is convenient for file sharing, it’s only a USB 2.0, rather than the faster USB 3.0. 
Setup is a breeze and takes just minutes with the mobile app, or by using the WPS button. It offers a choice of WEP, WPA, WPA2, or WPS secure encryption. There’s even MAC address filtering, and guest-zone features.
