Increase wifi range of Airtel Fibernet

Gina sood
Ques. I got airtel fibernet wifi but need a booster or router to increase the range. Please suggest the brand and specifications

Ans. To extend the range your first option should be to buy a new router with a better range. This will give you a solution to the problem without increasing the complexity of the solution. A particularly useful router would be the following: TP-LINK TL-WR841N 300Mbps Wireless N Router http://www.flipkart.com/item/RTRD7HN3JJYF6WN2
A 2 antenna router has a better range than a single antenna router. This solution is good enough for a 3bhk house wherein the router has been kept at a centrally located place in the house for a uniform connectivity all over.

Now coming to a multi storey house, in this case you would require a WiFi repeater so as to propagate signal to the floors where the router is not present. TP-LINK TL-WA750RE http://www.flipkart.com/item/RTRDY9NVKBBNGYMU

TechTantrik always recommends tp-link WiFi routers and repeaters as we have found tp-link products to Excel in our tests for reliability and ease of use. Other brands have failed on a lot of parameters related to reliability like freezing, heating issues, connection drops etc.
