If, our Wi-Fi network is not fast and reliable in our entire home as we want it to be, our family members are complaining about signal dropping or they are losing Wi-Fi connection consistently while streaming then, it means, our existing home Wi-Fi router is not capable of covering our entire house with high speed Wi-Fi. It could be due to the router itself or it could be due to the presence of thick walls inside our home. Under these conditions, the Netgear wireless range extender is very beneficial. By installing the Netgear wireless range extender in our home, we could get a steady and fast Wi-Fi connection all around our home.
# Speed Is the most important factor
While purchasing aNetgear wireless range extender, we should always the Wi-Fi standards supported by it. If we want to take best out from the Netgear wireless range extender, it should support the latest 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard. 802.11ac wireless extender delivers speeds up to 2.8 times faster than any basic router with old Wi-Fi standard. With such speed from a Netgear wireless range extender, we could enjoy streaming and high-end gaming without any interruption. And if we are using a router which doesn’t support the 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard, the Netgear wireless range extender with 802.11ac wireless standard would work with the old router and it would be able to deliver us with a high-speed Wi-Fi.
# Dual band technology
The Netgear wireless range extender should have the dual band technology i.e. for expanding the Wi-Fi signals received from the home Wi-Fi router, it should use two bandwidths: 2.5ghz and 5ghz. The idea behind for using the dual bandwidth inside the Netgear wireless range extender was to limit the no of devices in 2.5ghz bandwidth. We could simply use the 2.5ghz bandwidth for those devices which do not need very high Wi-Fi speeds. And the device which needs very high Wi-Fi speeds could be connected with the network expanded by the Netgear wireless range extender in 5ghz bandwidth.
# Ability to get connected with Ethernet cable
Sometimes, we do not want to use any device wirelessly with Netgear wireless range extender. Instead of that, we prefer a hardwire connection between the Netgear wireless range extender and any other device like a TV. So, under these conditions, we should always consider that Netgear wireless range extender which would be equipped with the ethernet ports. If we want to use any device hardwired with the Netgear wireless range extender, we could simply use an Ethernet cable to make a hardwire connection between these two devices.
