Best WiFi Extenders 2017 – Top Wireless Repeaters – Complete Guide & Reviews

Published by: Zack Fuller | Last Updated: July 12, 2017

Your wireless router can only reach a certain distance in your house. Notice that in areas where the router is a bit far, your WiFi signal greatly drops or completely diminishes – this is called a dead zone.

Having a solid WiFi connection in all areas of your house can be difficult without the proper equipment. You can transfer your router to a central location, but even this can be ineffective – which is why you may need an extender.

WiFi extenders will improve the coverage of your connection and can improve overall connection speeds as well.

We have looked through many WiFi extenders and repeaters to compile this list. We purposefully did not include some of the high-end and very expensive models. We focused on consumer versions for home and small office use. Look through our top 10 best WiFi extenders of 2017 here.

1. NETGEAR AC1200 (EX6150-100NAS) – Best WiFi Range Extender To Buy In 2017

The NETGEAR AC1200 EX6150 is a device that will extend WiFi signal in homes that have spots where wireless Internet reception is poor or unable to reach.

It supports both the 802.11ac protocol that functions in both the 5 Ghz and the 2.4 GHz ranges. This means it will work with any wireless setup in your home, regardless of how new or old it is.

Product Features

All you have to do is plug it in and wait for the green light to turn on. When you see the green light, it means the router is within range. A red light means it is not within range.

The setup process is easy. Simply press the WPS button on your router. If there’s no WPS button, then use the NETGEAR setup app or log into it manually via a browser.

If you want to use the EX6150 as WiFi access point, feel free – you can. Just plug the Ethernet cable into it and then you can connect to it with WiFi. It has speeds of up to 1200 Mbps. Also, distance, walls, and other signals play a role in how setup will go, which means each setup is different when it comes to transfer speeds.

Pros
  • Stream HDTV without buffering
  • Effectively covers WiFi weak and dead spots
  • Distances of more than 65 feet can be covered
Cons
  • Slightly more expensive than other units
