Is it worth it to buy a Wi-Fi repeater?
WiFi extenders can, in fact, expand the range of your wireless network. But their effectiveness is limited by a host of factors, including the speed of the internet connection coming into your home, the distance from your router, the areas in your home in need of WiFi coverage, and the WiFi demands of your family.
How long does a Wi-Fi repeater last?
If your situation is different, and you rely on your extender to provide internet access to important devices or parts of your home, then you may want to consider replacing it from time to time. There is no definite time frame for replacing a Wi-Fi extender, and one can last for ten years or more.
How far can a Wi-Fi repeater work?
Without additional help from boosters and such, a router can broadcast a signal within a limited area of about 150 feet (depending on the type of router you have). Boosters, extenders, and repeaters can spread your Wi-Fi signal much farther—up to 2,500 feet.
