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. Upgrading to a higher performance wireless router may increase your home’s wireless signal sufficiently, but adding one or more Wi-Fi range extenders is often a better solution because you can position them where the need is greatest.

These new Eero PoE devices are for serious Wi-Fi setups only
The Eero PoE 6 with the price listed.

At the annual Amazon hardware event, router company Eero has announced two new devices for serious connectivity: the Eero PoE 6 and Eero PoE Gateway. These are not for your average Wi-Fi setup.

PoE, or power over ethernet, is a way of bringing wireless connectivity to wired infrastructures, especially made for professional installers and businesses. The Eero PoE 6 is a dual-band Wi-Fi 6 access point that covers up to 2,000 square feet of space with connectivity, including connections for more than 100 devices. Eero says it can go "almost anywhere ethernet cable can be pulled," including being mounted flush to surfaces like walls or ceilings.

This dongle can bring a superfast Wi-Fi 6 connection to your old computer
The Netgear Nighthawk A8000 Wi Fi 6 adapter

To upgrade to Wi-Fi 6 you would customarily need to buy an entirely new laptop or replace the Wi-Fi card in your desktop. Netgear has come up with a clever way to avoid this. The Netgear Nighthawk A8000 adapter simply plugs into any USB slot and brings instant Wi-Fi 6 connectivity to your computer.

What it does is retroactively bring Wi-Fi 6 to older computers, allowing them to enjoy the same high bandwidth and speeds as brand-new top-of-the-line machines with Wi-Fi 6-capable receivers. It supports all three Wi-Fi bands -- 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, and 6 GHz -- and can deliver blazing speeds of up to 1.2GBps, which is comparable to an ethernet connection. However, there is a catch.
