Amazons drops the prices of TP-Link Wi-Fi range extenders

Did your family acquire new wireless devices during the holiday season? Does your home have internet dead spots where you can never maintain a strong Wi-Fi signal? In either case, a Wi-Fi range extender may be the best answer. Adding a range extender to a wireless network is fast, easy, and relatively inexpensive, especially compared to buying multiple wireless routers or setting up a mesh network. Amazon dropped the prices on TP-Link Wi-Fi range extenders in a timely sale when many families are using recently acquired mobile and gaming devices.

The size, layout, and physical aspects of your residence plus the number and types of wireless devices can affect performance.
