Advice on Wireless Range Extender

I purchased Pix-Link Wireless-AC|750M Repeater. Is this the best product for extending the range of our wifi network? If it is, I am having problems setting itg up - it is not plug and play.

THeres a link to setup on the web site under the support tab that diagrams several connection methods.

Is it the best option? No. If you want the best option, look into a powerline adapter. These use your home's electrical system to distribute internet throughout your home. They can be more expensive, but they work much better.

Actually, you CAN use this WITH a powerline adapter.

Powerline adapters work well. I have used various trendnet models. You can buy the tpl430ap kit. That offers powerline and wifi. A big flaw with it is that the ethernet ports interfere with the upper outlet but it works. I have since replaced it with a mostly wired network using unmanaged switches. I also have a few outdoor wired boosters for outdoors for my ring cameras. My stucco prevents good signals from getting inside. Those are wavlink ac600's

All this is good if one is tech savy. I am not. I need something that is Plug and Play.

If setting up through the phone, download the fing app. Connect to the device. Search open ports and it will give you the ip address of the device. Type the address in your browser and you can connect to the device to set it up. It should search wifi. Show networks to connect to. Connect to the home network and put in the login details. It should then reboot and be set up.

Powerline adapters are pretty much p&p.
