Ordered it anyway!
Thanks.

Yes. It's not a "powerline" adapter. So it basically takes the existing wifi signal it can find. And then boosts that signal. The problems with this method is 1. If your signal is 1 bar, it will only boost that 1 bar signal. So your laptop with have a stronger connection to a 1 bar signal.
2. May not be the case anymore (especially if you have 2 antennas) but these type used to have to accept the existing signal. Which takes 2 bars of signal away. Meaning it can only give out 2-3 bars signal.

I'd recommend powerline adapters with passthru if you need the plug still
How good/useful are these?.

As we've had an Xiaomi one before (from GearBest), and it unfortunately wasn't up to scratch.

And needless to say, getting that cheapish Device from GearBest obviously meant it was coming from China/Hong Kong, etc.

So obviously wasn't worth the time/money/hassle (neccessary), to inevitably post it back to them, or whatever?.

So had to unfortunately write it off as one of those multiple 'lessons of life' (or something?, lol).

I'm assuming that this one will be a wee bit better, perhaps?.

Hahahahahahahahaha great mind's really do think alike, huh? (cough cough).
Bought as been after one for a while just to reach the back bedroom. Worth a punt for a fiver. Thanks OP
I've got something similar - as a wifi extender to a weak spot works fine but it doesn't like playing second fiddle to the main router and will make your main routers WiFi go off!!

So, if you've a weak spot say in your garden this should pick up your Internet connection fine but when you are back in the house nearer your router you'll find you need to turn this off which can be a pain in the butt, but in my experience with this that's what will happen
Good price for a brand name one, but looks like it lacks the multimode feature that some of the nameless ones have (repeater/client/AP).
The coverage indicator LED is a good idea though.

The electrical socket part of this, is it a 2 pin configuration?, a 3 pin configuration?, or something else? (eg. it rather power's itself off via USB, or whatever?), thanx.
Used one of these a few months ago when I was extending my parents WiFi network. Really impressed overall, worked straight out of the box, very simple setup, decent coverage. For a fiver its worth it.

Plugs in to a 3 pin socket.
To be fair I use mine using an Ethernet cable so why it knocks out the WiFi on our main router is a bit of a mystery , maybe I’ve got it set up wrong but I’ve tried it without using an Ethernet cable and it works fine - but still knocks out the main routers WiFi

Unlikely to be faster than 30mb as it's not dual band, so terrible if you want fast broadband

Pretty sure this is the one I have, watching Liverpool game via it now on IPTV
I just made a Foil dish and that helped my Wifi.
Do these half the throughput? At moment I get 70m down. Don’t want it dropping to 35 even if I do get a stronger signal. Ty
Came on to look for a WiFi extender and this was top of the highlights. Cheers OP and Hotdeals.

If you're plugging the ethernet cable in to Lan port marked WAN or WLAN then the main router starts to act like a modem only allowing you to use the extender as your WiFi access point. Also check the router setting and switch off the WAN settings if it still knocks out the WiFi.

I guess your exerience. I wouldnt know.
Reviews on this on Amazon are poor
I think it's about time that double plug sockets are replaced by tripples with usb. Even my hallway needs more than a double. I've got my ring doorbell 2 plugged in and a night light sensor but I dry my hair dryer there and i want a socket for a cordless Dyson. I want a spare too 😁

How comes?


This only extends the slow 2.4ghz signal not the hubs 5ghz wireless AC signal. I your happy with 20-30mb then its worth it for a few pound
