" ...  We are very much enjoying our new range extender from Linksys. ... It was extremely easy to set up and has provided the side of our house furthest from our modem with much better WiFi coverage. ... My brother lives in our lower level bedroom and had issues with his cell phone WiFi signal being dropped constantly off of our modem. ... Ever since we set up the extender he hasn’t been dropped once!  ...  "

" ...  We recently installed WiFi security cameras and needed to extend the reach of the WiFi signal to one of the cameras that was furthest from the router. ... After much research and reading of reviews I settled on this Linksys AC1200 Dual-Band WiFi Range extender. ... I didn’t have to do anything to my existing router (Apple AirPort Extreme).  ...  "
comment
" ...  This wi-fi extender solved that and boosted connectivity for everything else in that area of the house.  ...  "
comment
" ...  If you need this to extend your coverage from one corner of the room to the other, or to the next room, buy it. ... Otherwise, pick another one as this one does not boost the signal enough to extend your coverage from one corner of the house to another, or onto the garden, garage etc.  ...  "
