Such devices can be of different shapes, sizes, and speed rates. Most wireless extenders plug into a standard electrical socket.

7 Best Budget WiFi Extenders in 2021

By Robin Owens 5 days ago, Extenders

Affordable and high-quality WiFi extenders.

best budget wifi extender

The best budget WiFi extender can’t replace an existing router, but it works in conjunction with it to improve a signal. This system resembles stereo amplifiers that are used to control Hi-Fi systems. They’re powered by electricity and aim at boosting an original WiFi signal by transmitting an amplified one over the air.

To achieve this technical goal, WiFi extenders have two WiFi antennas, one – for signal capturing, the other – for transmission. Such devices can be of different shapes, sizes, and speed rates. Most wireless extenders plug into a standard electrical socket. You can also configure them with a WPS button or a special smartphone app.

Top 7 Best Budget WiFi Extenders

  1. NETGEAR EX3700 - Compact

  5. TP-Link Deco M5 - With Alexa
  6. NETGEAR EAX8000 - 4K HD stream
  7. NETGEAR Orbi - 3Gbps speed

Since modern Wi-Fi extenders use the same reliable encryption protocols as main Wi-Fi, you may not worry about your privacy. However, be ready to speed drops.

When choosing the best budget WiFi extender, it is important to get the one that matches the specifications of your router. If you have an AC1900 dual-band router, purchase an AC1900 dual-band extender (or higher). Moreover, decide whether you need a desktop or a plug-in device.

How to Choose the WiFi Extenders?

how to choose the best budget wifi extender

Transmission Speed

Check the specifications to learn the maximum transmission rate for each band (Wi-Fi network standard). For example, at 2.4 GHz (802.11n) up to 300 Mbps, at 5 GHz (802.11ac) up to 867 Mbps.

This is the maximum theoretically possible speed, not real. The higher it is, the wider the bandwidth of the amplifier and the higher the real speed of the Internet connection will be.

Wi-Fi Standard Compliance

If your wireless router uses current 802.11ac standard, you need to choose a suitable extender. The older 802.11n version works slower and is often limited to one band.

Thus, it creates a bottleneck in the WiFi coverage area, slowing down your browsing and streaming.

Range

Dual-band WiFi extenders are capable of collecting a signal from a router and transmitting it with minimal interference. This happens they use one band to intercept a signal from a router and the other to transfer it across a house.

SSBs try to cope with the task using a single band, which can result in weak signals and interference from other devices operating and transmitting on the same frequency.

5G Support

Most WiFi networks operate at 2.4GHz nowadays. Support for WiFi networks at 5GHz allows you to switch to almost free frequency as well as significantly increase WiFi speed.

When it comes to wireless networking standards, the newest and fastest 802.11ac standard only works in the 5GHz band. 5GHz supports 802.11n and 802.11ac. So, if you have a lot of neighboring Wi-Fi networks that results in constant disconnections or low WiFi speed, then switching to a 5GHz Wi-Fi network is the right decision.
