Top 4 Best WIFI Repeaters for your Money

  1. NETGEAR N300

For around the cost of $30-$40, NETGEAR offers one of the most reliable and effective repeaters on the market, all for a pretty low price. It lengthens wifi signals to 300 Mpbs, which is quite the long range. It is simple to install and will give its consumer little to no issues for installation.

The power generated from the N300 is quite good, but won’t exactly match that of your router. This is due to the gap the SSID will go through from your router to the actual repeater device. However, this will happen with any repeater device, so it isn’t to be expected to outperform your main router. For the price of this device though, it’s quite shocking at how much it is capable of doing, for being a lower-priced repeater on the market.

Overall reviews of this product have made it to be seen as the best wifi repeater on the market, and for good reason. Reviews capitalize on the low price, long range offered, and simple installation to make it easily our top pick for a wifi repeater.


One wifi range extender that doesn’t exactly fit in with the rest, the MSRM is on the top of the market, despite not having a well-known name attached to it. Coming in offering 300 Mbps, similar to the NETGEAR N300, the MSRM’s range is lengthy, and again comes in at around $30-40.

What makes this unique however from other repeaters is the sleek black design. It looks magnificent, whether that be in your home or office. Also, the installation time is around 5 minutes, making it one of the simplest to perform on the market. Besides design, price, and range however, this grabs the number two spot due to how far the signal travels, and not because of distance. If you have thicker walls in your home or business that you need a wifi signal to travel through, the MSRM is easily your best bet, as it is designed to travel through thicker walls.

Reviews of the MSRM have again, all been positive. Many costumers have awed over the amount of range the MSRM is able to bring, covering every inch of the designated areas.

  1. TP-Link AC750

The cheapest in terms of price this list ($24), the TP-Link AC750 comes in at number three. What makes this product interesting is the technology built within it. It comes with smart signal indicator, which will aid you in finding the best-suited area for the repeater for maximum coverage.

The design is sleek, and the device isn’t bulky or shaped to be out of place. It will fit right in with any home décor or business. The range itself will extend out to about 10,000 square feet, and is equipped with three internal antennas. With that alongside the smart signal indicator, and range should be the least of your worries with this product.

Installation time can take a bit longer, 10-15 minutes on average, which still isn’t a lot. Reviews again have been mostly positive. Costumers of this repeater praise the range, and say it is one of the best wifi repeaters on the market. With the cost, it’s hard to argue that statement. However, the setup can be a bit confusing, especially to new consumers in the field. Overall however, if you are on a budget and shopping for a repeater, this is your best bet!

  1. NETGEAR AC1200

If you are looking for a powerful wifi repeater and aren’t too worried about cost, the NETGEAR AC1200 is the best option. Coming in around $60-$70, this deluxe wifi repeater is by far the most expensive on the list, but for good reason. It extends up to a whopping 1200 Mbps, making it cover the furthest range as well on this list.

Other than that however, everything else is default, wall plug, 1-port fast ethernet, etc…It also comes with though, 5 Ghz dual band, which isn’t available in models such as the N300, listed above.

The reviews, like every repeater in this list, have been positive. It is similar to the N300 in terms of practical performance and design, but just has much more range than its counterpart. For a home, unless rather large, I’d say the N300 or any other repeater listed above would do its job. However, if you are looking for a wifi repeater that needs to cover a massive space such as an office, then, the NETGEAR AC1200 is the way to go!
