Do you want to eliminate internet dead zones in your home and office? Then, you definitely need to have a WiFi Range Extender.
WiFi range extenders complement your home internet router by extending WiFi range so that you will eliminate the proverbial “dead zones or deadspots”.
Today, we are going to take a look at the Edimax Wi-Fi Smart Plug WiFi Range Extender. It has a wall-plug design so that it barely takes up space. But, the Edimax Wi-Fi Smart Plug WiFi Range Extender does have a few extra features up its sleeve.
Here are the features of the Edimax Wi-Fi Smart Plug WiFi Range Extender:
- Range Extender boosts wireless signal to “Wireless Dead Zone” flawlessly
- Parental Control & Guest Wi-Fi Network
- Features Wireless Environment Analytics
- Good Night Mode & Wi-Fi Scheduling
- Free EdiRange iOS & Android App
- Works with Any Wireless Router / Access Point
- “Ultra-Mini” size and wall-mounted design
- Easy Setup via Smartphone
First, let’s talk about its design. The Edimax N300 WiFi Range Extender sports an “ultra-mini” wall plug design, which actually means that it is quite smaller than the competition. If your house has some small sockets, it can actually fit in without you having to worry about other appliances plugged into that socket.
Another unique feature of the Edimax N300 WiFi Range Extender is its “Good Night Mode”. Basically, you can turn off the WiFi Range extender so that it will not suck up your electricity when you sleep at night. You control the Good Night Mode feature by using its companion app, the Edirange.
The Edirange is an app that you can download from the iOS and Google play stores. Aside from turning on and off the Good Night Mode feature, it also analyzes the WiFi environment so that you will know if you have good WiFi signals anywhere on your home. It also lets you tweak the Parental controls right from your smartphone so that you do not need to go to your computer or laptop to set it up. All in all, it is an amazing companion app and I just love that the Edimax N300 has it.
As far as installation goes, it is really very easy! There are 2 ways you can set up the router. First, you can just press the WPS button on the Edimax N300 WiFi Range Extender, while also pressing the WPS button on your router. Then, it should be setup in less than 2 minutes! If your router does not have a WPS button, you can setup the N300 using the Edirange app. It is so easy to install that even people who are not tech-savvy can install it without problems.
There is one thing to note though, the Edimax N300 WiFi Range Extender only amplifies WiFi signals that take advantage of the Wireless N technology. This means that it is only limited to 300mbps of throughput. Still, I don’t see most people going beyond that, at least in the home setting.
The Edimax N300 WiFi Range Extender is an inexpensive and highly feature-rich WiFi Range extender thanks to its Edirange app. This WiFi Range extender only costs $24.
