The Best Wi-Fi Extender

참고: https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-wi-fi-extender/

We’re confident that the TP-Link RE200 offers the best combination of performance and price among the Wi-Fi extenders we tested. You should still consider a mesh-networking kit before buying it though.

After spending more than 50 hours researching Wi-Fi extenders and testing 13, we think the TP-Link AC750 Wi-Fi Range Extender RE200 is the best way to get Wi-Fi signal to part of your house or apartment that your router can’t reach. It’s inexpensive, and it was the only pure Wi-Fi extender which improved speeds in every single test. But if you have multiple trouble spots or if your router is more than a couple of years old, you should consider replacing it with a mesh Wi-Fi kit instead.

Improved coverage, low cost

TP-Link’s RE-200 is a much better performer than its modest cost would lead you to expect. It was the only pure Wi-Fi extender we tested that never decreased the quality of the connection in any test.

The TP-Link RE200 is a dirt cheap dual-band wireless-ac extender. It improved the Wi-Fi quality in all of our tests, it’s easy to set up, it isn’t too bulky, and at $30, it’s a simple fix that costs a lot less than a major hardware upgrade. It was the only Wi-Fi extender we tested that was always better than not using an extender at all.

Extension without congestion

A powerline access point like the TL-WPA8630P can extend your Wi-Fi network further than a pure Wi-Fi extender can, and without competing so much with your existing devices—if your home’s electrical wiring cooperates.

*At the time of publishing, the price was $140.

A powerline Wi-Fi access point can be placed much further away from your router than a simple extenders, and—when it works—doesn’t interfere with your existing Wi-Fi. In our tests, TP-Link’s TL-WPA8630P beat all of the other extenders and hung with or outpaced even the more expensive Orbi and Eero mesh kits we recommend. But it’s much more expensive than the RE200, and buying any powerline adapter is a gamble, since your house’s wiring probably wasn’t designed to work with it. Older (pre-1980s) and more complex (more than one breaker box) houses tend to be especially problematic. But if you already know your house’s wiring is up to par, or if you’re willing to experiment and find out, the TL-WPA8630P is the kit to try.
