Even though I gots my N+ certification 19 years ago I have really no clue how this gadget works would love some advice. Some background: our internet comes through a radio tower setup and finally ends up in my little 4 port wifi hub which then dispenses the power of the internet to my wife and brood. In 2 weeks time we are moving to a new house which is much larger and which most certainly will have dead spots for our wifi.
My plan was to ask the ISP who is moving the radio equipment to the house to sommer install something that will make the wifi coverage reach across our new mansion. They quoted me R1300 for some kind of repeater thingy to do just that. To my ears that sounds like a ton of money and there must surely be a less expensive alternative. Doing some research I see that takealot sells something like this https://www.takealot.com/netgear-ex2700-n300-wifi-range-extender-essentials-edition/PLID46644700?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI8vv4v7S54wIVzICfCh1BowDnEAYYBCABEgJ78fD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds for R369 and looks like it will do the job.
Will it do the job? How will it work? Will it switch on, pickup the wifi from our little hub and then just … extend it?
Your wisdom and experience in this matter will be appreciated!
