Whole Coverage for Large Multi-rooms FlatFor the large multi-rooms flats, single wireless router can not provide a perfect WiFi environment and there are always WiFi dead zones at the balcony, study or bathroom and so on. It is easy to realize WiFi coverage for the whole flat by placing an A9 at the right place according to the signal LED (the LED should be GREEN), and boosting the signal to the whole flat. Strong Signal and Wide CoverageWith 2*3dBi external antennas ,Tenda A9 can provide strong singal and extend the existing WiFi coverage to 200?. Also, by optimizing the software and hardware, the anti-interference ability is improved much, so that A9 can provide stable signal and guarantee the large WiFi coverage.

Bargain!

Just remember that this repeater does not have an Ethernet port to plug devices into it directly, everything has to have WiFi.
Also there is no 5GHz support, which is mostly relevant for people living in urban areas.

Extremely simple setup, ideal for technophobes.

How does a setup work for this? I live in an industrial estate where the WiFi is provided in the form of an open network (where you have to sign in after) or a secured network where you have to enter your username and password in the settings. This has never allowed me to setup any xiaomi smart devices (especially builds). I was thinking this could be an alternative if I could set it up properly.

2 options that I can think of...

1. WiFi router with WISP support
Once setup the first device that connects for Internet access will be presented with the usual login page, anyone that tries to connect afterwards will just piggy back on the initial login.
Notice that dependant on security settings for the WiFi network you may have to repeat the login every couple of hours/days.

2. Ask the network admin to add the WiFi MAC address of the device in question to the list of permanently allowed devices/associate the device with your account login, so it can connect without the need to login.

I can manage the MAC devices myself, hence being able to use Xbox, Alexa and the like. However, the Xiaomi smart device setup is very specific. It will only allow you to connect to WiFi networks that require Password ONLY, no username + password and no open networks. I suppose I either need a router that will allow me to set it up in such a way or a WiFi extender like this depending on how this is setup.

Not much available in regards to user manuals.

The Tenda A9 does have the option to re-broadcast the remote WiFi with a different WiFi name/password in its web-interface. So as long as you can add the MAC addresses of the smart devices to the main WiFi networks' allowed list this should do the trick for you.

Ordered. Approximately where is the optimum place to locate this in relation to the router (downstairs) and upstairs bedroom (at back of house) with weak reception?

Thanks for the advice. I live in student halls and just read that I am not allowed to use WiFi extenders (due to obvious reasons). However, still a shame they don't provide an option to get pre-generated keys to connect to a common network and instead you have to use your username and password which I don't think many smart device companies integrate within the app setup process. I think it's a pretty unique case but a shame nonetheless as I love using coloured lights to create mood scenes when I go back home.

The Tenda A9 has a LED light at the front that indicates signal strength to the router. Place it so that the LED light is solid green and devices in the upstairs back rooms show a good signal as well. Finding a good spot is really down to trial and error.

Even lower end WiFi routers/access points nowadays have the option to broadcast multiple WiFi networks (e.g. one open/password less and another that needs a WiFi password). It is all down to them being bothered enough to accommodate you.

Your only option will be to talk to the IT people, may be bribe them with chocolate/biscuits.

Try a TP-Link WR702N or WR810N in ‘hotspot router mode’. I use these when I go away to hotels, etc. And need to attach devices that can’t see the authentication page. The TP-Link will authenticate then create its own standard network for devices behind it, like smart cameras and lights that can’t get to the auth page. I found this wasn’t in EU firmware but uploading the US firmware added the mode back in. You can mask the network so it’s unlikely anyone will notice. I think those devices (or newer) are exactly what you need as it creates a normal link for you to use.

Now that's s $64000 question lol
You've got to think line of sight.
First, pair it to the router in the same room.
Then maybe try in the room directly above the router (brick walls and metal are what causes problems, wooden floors aren't so bad)
Otherwise about halfway between the problem spot and the router, try upstairs and down

Wow not colour blind friendly at all

Cheers op, ordered!

Will this boost a bt openzone?
Chuffing cheap!

Have some (more) heat OP!
esar09/11/2019 13:23

Cheers

Not conclusive, as I need to enter an email and password to log in. I will give it a go for that price and see what happens.

In that case you'll need something like an old mobile to log in on then, and then create a hotspot (that the extender can connect to)
Eastender?!?
Let's hope this fixes the WiFi at my place
fastcarmaniac09/11/2019 16:18

Already have dispatch notification


Probably being drop shipped, but I could be wrong
Does this connect through, for example my virgin media modem and it's password? just like a tp link or a Netgear extender?
Same price as when posted last and bought on 5th October
Good spot Imran

Place it where the signal is still strong but inbetween your dead spot and the your main router.
