Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Those are some pretty nice setups. If I were looking for an extender, it would one of the two Netgear offerings, because I have always had great performance from their products.

I use a dual band Netgear half way through the house, it slows the signal down about 20%-30% but it gets there.

Instead of an extender, I would go with a mesh system. With a WiFi range extender you have two (or more) separate WiFi networks. With a mesh system, you can move from one end of the house to the other without changing networks.

WiFi range extenders repeats a signal. Repeating causes signal loss.

Mesh networks are more efficient and seamless. And they are a lot easier to set up, using your smart phone.

You have a lot of choices for a mesh network: Google system, Samsung, Linksys, and Netgear. I have a Google mesh system. My WiFi signal is strong all through my small house and in my back yard to my fence. And the signal is strong in my front yard all the way to the street.

I take back my comment above. After clicking on your links you are talking about a mesh system.
