Still working from home? It has its perks (zero commute! sweatpants all day!), but it can be a drag when you decamp to another room and the internet goes out. Here’s help: The TP-Link AC750 Wi-Fi Extender (RE220) is on sale right now for just $18 at Amazon. (That’s $17 off.) This genius gadget will beam your service to the far corners of your home…and beyond.
Casting a wider net
The TP-Link AC750 extends the reach of your home’s Wi-Fi network while also giving it a much-needed speed boost. If you live in a big space and your router is on one side of your home, but you want a strong and fast Wi-Fi connection on the other, this extender will come in handy. This little guy can cover an additional 1,200 square feet, as well as delivering up to 750Mbps (megabytes per second) for a speedier internet service.
“My bedroom is a Wi-Fi dead zone. It doesn’t matter how good my router is, I will frequently lose connection altogether or get a really weak signal,” shared a five-star reviewer. “I put this extender…between the dead zone and my router, and the connection is amazing. I rarely lose connection. I generally have two or three bars compared to one bar. Most importantly, my bandwidth speed is anywhere from three to eight times as strong as it was without the extender.”
Meanwhile, this Wi-Fi extender also works as a mesh network, so you can seamlessly go room to room or story to story without skipping a beat. Unlike traditional Wi-Fi extenders, you don’t have to reconnect to an extended network to get better range and speeds — the AC750 automatically logs in for you. In essence, it creates one large Wi-Fi network in your home, rather than multiple smaller ones.
“I really love…that it’s a meshed network,” continued the reviewer. “For those of you who have used older extenders that made you log into a separate network, you know how frustrating this can be.”
Green means go!
This plug-and-play device is ready for action. Just plug the TP-Link extender into a wall outlet near where you want a signal boost, tap the green button twice, and it automatically syncs to your home’s Wi-Fi network. That’s it. Your home’s Wi-Fi signal will effectively bounce off this device’s antennas to give you a more consistent signal throughout your home.
The extender also comes with a built-in Ethernet port, so you can easily give your laptop or streaming device a faster, more solid internet connection. It’s like plugging directly into the web itself.
For $18 (down from $35), the TP-Link AC750 Wi-Fi Extender (RE220) is a lifesaver that can revive internet dead zones, turning your home into one large hotspot for nearly all of your devices. This is especially important for those of us working from home.
Added another five-star reviewer: “The extender works perfectly in my house. It boosts my modem-router combo significantly and provides a strong and steady signal into the room where I hold my meetings. In fact, my Wi-Fi analyzer app tells me that the signal from the TP-Link RE220 is usually stronger than the signal from my modem-router combo!”
