We have Telecentro in our two-level apartment and their modem-router's WiFi signal (2.4 and 5GHz) is weak upstairs. The metal stairs definitely don't help! Upstairs we have my husband's computer and and a smart TV in the bedroom. The bedroom, where the stairs land, is the point with the worst signal, streaming is sometimes affected to the point that Netflix disconnects entirely.
I had planned to buy a range extender during my stay in Europe, however I am unable to have videocalls with my husband while I am here, plus I don't know when I will be bale to come back. It also seems that range extenders are cheap also in Argentina - there are 450 Mpbs used and new for 10 to 25 USD.
I see on amazon.it that there are 1200 Mbps for 40 USD. I was thinking to buy a used 450 Mbps one for my husband while I am away, and then bring from Europe a better one and I am looking for recommendations.
This one is the best seller on amazon.it for about 40 USD. I suppose this is plugged into an electrical socket upstairs, whereas the used range extender available in Argentina for 2000 ARS should be cabled to the Telecentro router downstairs.
