Why You Should Get a Wireless Range Extender?
You must be aware about what a range extender is before knowing why you should get one. An
extender is a device used to boost the wireless range of your existing router as your wireless
router is not able to cover a large home, office or other places. You can also install another router
at your place but that will cost you much. A router cost range between $200 to $300 and the cost
of an extender is just $50 to $60. So, just see the difference. It’s better to get a cost effective
wireless range extender to boost the signal. There are various other benefits of an extender, let
us now discuss.
When you are experiencing lack of signal or no signal at all in some of the corners of your home
or office then it is recommended to buy and install an extender. WicommFi premium range
extender AC750 will be a great one for you. The setup of the device is so easy that you would
love it at the first time installation. Just scan the QR code given on the front panel of the extender

parental controls, changing the name and password of the wireless network and set security
encryption. This extender is having dual band frequencies (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz). The 2.4 GHz is
