I live in an apartment and my router is in the living room on the first floor. My bedroom is on the third floor so the wifi does not reach it. I was wondering which wifi extender works best for my Samsung Note 3 and my Iphone 7?
Always avoid wireless repeaters, extenders that connect back to the router via the mains wiring to a LAN port on the router are generally the best. Dual band units will be more expensive than single band ones.
The problem with all single band units (or the 2.4GHz band on a dual band unit) is that there are only three wireless channels you can use - 1, 6 or 11. Your router will be using one and the extender needs another. This is before you start considering how congested with other networks the 2.4GHz band is, if it is bad no extra wireless AP will help at all, in fact, it could make things worse.
Before spending any money, you really need to use a Wi-Fi analyser in your property first just to see how congested this band is.
