As a matter of fact, there are a lot many things that you need to consider prior to going down that rabbit hole. Fortunately, we're always there to help you.

Why do I need a Netgear WiFi range extender?

If you're reading this post, then it's safe to assume that you have issues with the WiFi connectivity in your home or building. You're encountering dead zones and blind spots in areas that are far away from your existing WiFi router, or spots in your house where your devices won't connect to your home network.

Despite the fact that the range of your existing WiFi network signal may not be the culprit. There are numerous reasons why your internet is funky. For instance, hundreds of people keep their WiFi router the same for years without replacing it. This is the incorrect way absolutely. If your main WiFi router is more than 3-4 years old and your WiFi is acting up, then you should replace it as soon as possible prior to doing anything else.

Note: If your WiFi router is new and up-to-date, then it can be a disaster if you place it poorly. So, it is recommended to place your router openly at a higher shelf.

Experts say - the physical distance between a WiFi router and a device (wired or wireless) isn't the only thing that can hamper the signal strength. Networking routers should be placed in a central location of the house. On the other hand, you must keep the router away from metal appliances, electronic gadgets, Bluetooth speakers, cordless phones, and thick walls.

Though the router is the backbone of your home networking system, still it is not enough to cover larger space. To cover a larger area of your home, you might need a Netgear range extender.

Generally, the biggest step will be pressing the WPS buttons on your extender and the router simultaneously to establish a strong, powerful, and reliable internet connection between the two.

If your Netgear extender has an ethernet port, you should see whether you can connect it to your existing WiFi router that way or not. After all, using a wired connection is always faster and secure than a wireless connection.

Where should I place it?
