The Amped Wireless REC22P is our top choice for Wi-Fi extenders. It's easy to set up, and it delivers better range, better speed, and better security than any of its competitors. It played an important role in solving our Wi-Fi coverage problem in our home office, and allowed us to easily connect to the Internet from any room in the house. The REC22P's dual-band design provides better coverage over longer distances than single-band extenders, and it supports both 5-GHz and 2.4-GHz signals. It has two internal antennas (one 5-GHz, one 2.4-GHz) and two more external antennas (one 5-GHz, one 2.4-GHz), and all four receive antennas have powerful amplifiers. The REC22P uses a dual-core processor, which delivers faster and smoother performance than single-core extenders, and it automatically switches between 5-GHz and 2.4-GHz channels. The REC22P uses the latest 802.11ac wireless standard, which provides 1.17 Gbit/s speed, which is more than twice as fast as standard 802.11n routers. The REC22P uses WPA-2 encryption, which is much stronger than standard 802.11g routers and much safer. The REC22P is small enough to fit on your desk, but it's powerful enough to reach the farthest corners of your home. The REC22P has a 10-foot cable that connects to your modem.

Amped's RE1750A AC1750 Wi-Fi Range Extender offers solid performance and ease of use, and it's an affordable way to expand the range of your home Wi-Fi. It's easy to set up, and the range extender is compact and unobtrusive, so it doesn't clutter up your entertainment center. The RE1750A uses 802.11ac Wave 2 technology, so it supports faster speeds and longer range than Wave 1 extenders, but it's the only extender we tested that supports the same 5GHz frequency band as Wi-Fi routers, so you won't affect router performance. The extender has 4 Ethernet ports, 2 USB ports, and 1 DC port, so you can connect a large number of devices to the extender, including game consoles, smart TVs, and streaming media players, as well as wireless speakers, security cameras, and IP cameras. The RE1750A has 12,000 square feet of coverage, so it offers some added coverage over our previous pick (the Netgear EX7000), but the EX7000 is more efficient at boosting Wi-Fi speed. The Amped device also has a 5GHz dual-band that draws less power than single-band extenders, so it's more energy efficient. The Amped device also broadcasts its SSID in a stronger signal that is less susceptible to interference.
Discreet plug-in design is easy to install and works with any standard router, it also includes 1 gigabit port to bridge in your wired devices
The Amped Wireless REC44M is a power-packed Wi-Fi range extender that is ideal for large homes or those with multi-device families. It has six high power internal amplifiers and four high gain external antennas, which work together to extend your Wi-Fi network to over 12,000 sq. ft. of additional coverage. The REC44M also supports MU-MIMO (multiple user, multiple input, multiple output), which allows you to stream multiple HD and 4K media streams simultaneously without a lag. The REC44M also comes with Elite Support, Amped Wireless' free, US based, in-house, technical support. The REC44M is also backed by a 30-day money-back guarantee and a one-year warranty.
Elegant and compact plug-in design installs discreetly in any room
The Amped REC15A has one of the fastest Wi-Fi speeds we've tested, and its dual-band design means it can handle fast 5GHz Wi-Fi traffic as well as 2.4GHz devices. It also has a lot of memory, with 4GB of built-in storage, and it can support up to 10 devices, so you can set up multiple networks. The range extender is also quiet and has decent battery life. The biggest downside of the REC15A is that it doesn't support MU-MIMO (multi-user, multiple-input, multiple-output), so it doesn't provide as much bandwidth as some other MU-MIMO routers. The REC15A also has only one Ethernet port, which means you can't connect wired devices. One reviewer said the REC15A took longer than usual to boot up, and other users had trouble getting the extender to work with their router. The Amped REC15A is easy to set up, and its range performance is excellent for the money.

The Amped Wireless Pro SR600EX is a very powerful, professional-grade Wi-Fi extender. It has the features you need, including external antenna ports, a 600mW amplifier, a 60dB amplifier gain, and multiple wired and wireless ports. It has longer range than our previous top pick, the Amped Wireless SR600, and is significantly more powerful than a typical router. It also has several advantages over the less expensive Amped Wireless SR400, including longer range, higher wireless power, and support for a wider range of Wi-Fi network protocols, including 802.11a/b/g/n/ac (Wi-Fi 5), 802.11b/g/n (Wi-Fi 4), and 802.11n. The Amped Wireless SR600EX also has two Ethernet ports, which are useful for connecting wired devices, such as a computer or a switch. However, the SR600EX's range isn't quite as good as the Amped Wireless SR700W, which we tested separately. The SR600EX is more expensive, and it's a little bulkier than the SR700W. The Amped Wireless SR600EX is also less powerful than the Amped Wireless SR1000, which costs less but has less range.

The Amped B750EX is an affordable, compact extender that works well, as long as your Wi-Fi router is in range. The AC750 Wi-Fi signal it delivers is strong enough to reach areas you usually can't. It connected our entire house to Wi-Fi, including the basement, where our router was struggling to reach. The extender's signal strengthened Wi-Fi signals in our kitchen, living room and bedroom, and made it easier to stream HD movies without buffering. The extender has a port for plugging in a cable modem, so you can remove it when you're not using it. The extender also lets you prioritize Wi-Fi signals for gaming and streaming video, so you can make sure those signals are strong without interrupting your Wi-Fi for other online activities. The controls are simple and user-friendly, and it's easy to set up. The Amped B750EX is easy to set up and is reliable. However, it only has 300 Mbps of Wi-Fi speed, which isn't fast enough to stream HD movies or gaming without lag. If you're not using a cable modem, the Amped B750EX would work fine. But if your Wi-Fi speeds are slower, or you want a stronger signal, the Amped B750EX's competition is stronger.
Compact & elegant design, equipped with a modern digital clock display for discreet desktop or wall-mounted placement
Amped Wireless' AC750 Wi-Fi Range Extender (TAP-EX2) is the best-looking and best-performing Wi-Fi extender we've tested. Its industrial design is sleek, and it has a slick touch screen interface that's better than the old Xbox-style controller that other extenders use. The touch screen makes it easy to set up, and the extender has a one-year warranty that covers parts and labor. The AC750 comes with three ethernet ports, one USB file sharing port, and dual 3.5mm audio ports, so you can connect multiple devices, including smart TVs, game consoles, and PCs. The extender's range is also impressive, up to 10,000 sq. ft., and it's highly secure, as it doesn't support WEP or WPA encryption. The extender is also more stable than other extenders we tested, and it's extremely easy to set up. The extender uses a short-range Wi-Fi protocol called 802.11AC, which delivers faster speeds than 802.11N, and it also supports MU-MIMO (multi-user, multiple input, multiple output), which allows for better streaming of video. The extender also claims to eliminate Wi-Fi dead spots by repeating your Wi-Fi signal throughout your whole house. The AC750 has a 3.5mm headphone jack, so you can watch television without interrupting the extender's signal. The AC750 also lets you stream music from your phone or laptop wirelessly. The AC750 is also compatible with Alexa, so you can control it using voice commands.
