Amazon has again marked down two of their pricier Wi-Fi extenders. What do you use a Wi-Fi extender for? You may have a Wi-Fi network in your home, but the signal is weak or almost nonexistent in some corners of it.
We have our own recommendations for the best WiFi extenders, which you can read here. But we wanted to make you aware of these price drops.
NETGEAR AC1200 Wi-Fi Range Extender is on sale for $68.99 (regularly priced at $99.99). The AC1200 is ideal for HD streaming and gaming. Why? Its FastLane Technology uses both Wi-Fi bands to establish one super high-speed connection. This model also has an Ethernet port that you can use to connect a game console or smart TV to your Wi-Fi network.
NETGEAR N300 Wi-Fi Range Extender, Essentials Edition (EX2700) is on sale for $29.98. It’s an inexpensive solution if you’re using an Amazon Fire Stick in another room and want to boost the signal a bit to prevent any lag in your streaming.An Ethernet port helps connect wired devices such as a game console, smart TV or streaming player to your Wi-Fi network. A Smart Signal Indicator Light helps you place the extender in the perfect spot of your home. This device has universal compatibility, a two-year warranty and 24/7 technical support.
Whatever you buy for a Wi-Fi extender, it should be suited to the particular needs of your home. There are a wide variety of models worth looking over that do a good job with extending reception in those hard to reach corners of a house or multi-floor condo. Most models are universal and will work with the hardware already in your home, but it’s a good idea to check the typical range of the extender.
