When choosing a wifi booster, it’s best to check out the specifications first to make sure it’s compatible with your and whether or not it will fit your needs. These are:
- Single or dual-band wifi
- Price point
If you’re using a dual-band router, it’s best to choose a dual-band wifi booster to support both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz bands. A single band extender will work just fine and although you won’t get faster speeds, you will still have extended coverage with the 2.4Ghz band.
Wifi boosters come in many shapes and sizes with some being super compact while others are huge and bulky. Usually, compact wifi boosters are easy to set up and can fit anywhere in your home. Large wifi boosters on the other hand occupy more space but has more features like multiple Ethernet ports for wired connections.
Many wifi boosters today come with extra features for more versatility and usage. Some devices offer audio streaming for music playback while others have several Ethernet ports for smart TV’s, PC’s, and gaming consoles. Consider the features and buy according to your needs.
Wifi boosters come in different price points. Usually the more you pay, the more features you’ll get. But you don’t need to spend a ton of money to extend your wifi coverage. Wifi boosters start at £20 all the way up to £100 or more.
