What to look out when purchasing a Wifi booster?
The main thing to consider while buying a booster or extender is the Wifi standard. The latest is AC wireless standard and even AD has come now. The new standard comes with increasing speed. Also, consider the band frequency as there are now two bands in the Wifi extenders. One is older that is 2.4 GHz and another is 5 GHz band. If your router is having older standard than N then purchase a new one with a newer standard.
If you have a router that provides a speed of 400 Mbps then there is no need to purchase a wifi range extender that provides a speed of up to 1200 Mbps. No worth of spending this much amount then. Also, consider the number of Ethernet ports. Purchase an extender with four LAN ports or Ethernet port. This will ultimately increase the number of devices that can be connected to the extender.
