Selecting the best Wifi repeater is essential for maintaining a strong wifi connection. Not many people will have an in-depth knowledge about wifi repeaters, so we thought we would review and offer our recommendations for the latest repeaters for sale. So, without further ado, let’s look at our two top repeaters – the D-Link DAP-1320 and the TP-Link RE350.
Best Wifi Repeater Guide
First up we have the D-Link DAP-1320. This is one of the more inexpensive devices and actually one of the smallest that we tested. If you have more demanding network requirements, we wouldn’t recommend it, but for a small home network, it is ideal for this purpose. The size of the device needs to be seen to be believed. It’s actually smaller than a standard plug, so there is no need to worry that the D-Link interfering with other devices.
It comes with a WPS button that allows you to seamlessly connect the repeater to your router. If required, there is also a manual setting. In this setting, it will offer you the choice to connect to your usual network or another network within the range.
In terms of how easy the repeater it is to use, it is ideal for people who are inexperienced with networks and more advanced users alike. And at around the $25 mark, it offers excellent value for money.
Another repeater we would recommend is the TP-Link RE350. Whilst this isn’t the fastest, it does offer a fantastic range for a very good price.
Setting up the repeater is quite a straight forward process. All you need to do is plug it in and press the WPS button on the device and you are ready to go! Once the device is operational, you can elect to switch the lights off so it doesn’t act as distraction while you work, which is a nice feature to have.
There is one Ethernet port that is positioned on top of the repeater, which I admit is an unusual location. I guess it will only affect some who have a different wiring/plug setup to compared to others. It can seamlessly connect your devices to the network, but it is not able to function as an access point.
The TP-link RE350 rightly earns a place in our best wifi repeater guide since it offers excellent value for money without you taking a dent to your bank account.
