Router questions
« on: 4 Sep 2020, 06:36 pm »
Would a newer , better router give us better WiFi connection when outside our house ?
My wife was looking at a new router for $215!! Yikes !!
Can anyone recommend a new router that works great and is less expensive?
Thanks !!!

Possibly but a mesh network with one of satellites nearest to where you want outside coverage would probably be better. It's still going to cost you at least $150+/-.

There is a much cheaper option which is to simply buy an extender for your existing router. Less than $50.

What do you have now as a router and how fast do you want the outside connection to be meaning are you going to be surfing the web or gaming outside?

I picked this up: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07FT3LFD6/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Works well all the way to our property line about 100 feet.
