Are you still working from home? It has its perks (no commute! Sweatpants all day!), but it can be a liability when you head to another room and the internet goes down. Help is here: The TP-Link AC750 Wi-Fi Extender (RE220) is currently available on Amazon for just $23. (That’s $12 off.) This ingenious gadget will extend your service to the far corners of your home… and beyond.
Cast a wider net
The TP-Link AC750 extends the range of your home Wi-Fi network while giving it a much-needed boost in speed. If you live in a large room and your router is on one side of your house, but you want a strong and fast Wi-Fi connection on the other side, this extender will come in handy. This little guy can cover an additional 1,200 square feet and deliver up to 750 Mbps (megabytes per second) for faster internet service.
“My bedroom is a Wi-Fi dead zone. It doesn’t matter how good my router is, I often lose the connection altogether or get a really weak signal,” shared one five-star reviewer. “I placed 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 versus one bar. Most importantly, my bandwidth speed is somewhere between 3 and 3, 8 times faster than without an extender.”
Meanwhile, this Wi-Fi extender also works as a mesh network, so you can seamlessly go from room to room or floor to floor without missing a beat. Unlike traditional Wi-Fi extenders, you don’t need to reconnect to an extended network to get better range and speed – the AC750 will automatically sign up for you. Essentially, it creates one large Wi-Fi network in your home rather than several smaller ones.
“I really love… that it’s a mesh network,” the reviewer continued. “For those of you who have used older extenders where you logged into a separate network, you know how frustrating that can be.”
Green means go!
This plug and play device is ready to use. Simply plug the TP-Link extender into an outlet near where you want to boost the signal, double-tap the green button, and it automatically syncs to your home’s Wi-Fi network. That’s it. Your home’s Wi-Fi signal is effectively reflected off this device’s antennas to give you a strong, healthy signal throughout your home.
The extender also features a built-in Ethernet port, making it easy to give your laptop or streaming device a faster, more robust internet connection. It’s like plugging directly into the internet.
For $20 (down from $35), the TP-Link AC750 Wi-Fi Extender (RE220) is a lifesaver that can revive internet dead zones and turn your home into one big hotspot for almost all your devices. This is especially important for those of us who work from home.
Added another five star reviewer: “The extender works perfectly in my house. It significantly boosts my modem-router combo and delivers a strong and stable signal to the room where I hold my meetings. In fact, my Wi-Fi analyzer app says the signal from the TP-Link RE220 is usually stronger than the signal from my modem-router combo!”
