When we use Wi-Fi booster device like extenders then we are really concerned about the setup of our Wi-Fi booster device with Wi-Fi router.

As these boosters will re-broadcast the Wi-Fi signals and make them available in areas where router was not able to do so, the correct setup of Wi-Fi booster is always important.

Here at www mywifiext net setup details page, we bring the setup tips for Wi-Fi booster like extenders.

Choosing Wi-Fi Extender Brand

While most of the people look for much info for selecting the extender, I would like to simply recommend going with the brand that your router is of.

Every manufacturer has its own standardized technology, different manufacturer’s design and code vary a little differently. To boost the performances every brand has their different technological wording or terms.

So if our router and extender are of different brands then there might be a case for compatibility issue. In such case we will to cross reference both brands and will be bit problematic to resolve. So using router and extender of same brand is recommended.

Extender speed

Extender’s speed rating should always be equal to or higher than our router’s speed. The lowest speed becomes the entire network speed. So an extender with same speed rating or higher rating as that of our router is recommended for better overall network speed.

Installing extender at right place

After purchasing the correct extender we need to place them at correct place in order to get correct speed and over entire required area. Extender is like a pseudo router, so we should place it in the same way as we do for router.

Extender should be placed at such a place from where it gets full network with router i.e. router’s signal should be good at that place. Also we should take care of correct distance between router and extender.
