AX8 RAX75

I have an ac750 extender. Would a Mesh system work better?

Re: AX8 RAX75

You have the RAX75? 

are you talking about purchasing/installing a mesh system like netgear orbi or just adding a mesh extender? 

Are you wondering if a mesh extender or AX extender would work better than an AC750? (btw, ac750 is a speed, not a model)

Re: AX8 RAX75

Thanks.
I just installed the AX8 RAX75 router and the extender I have is an old model WN3000RPv3, and it doesn’t seem to provide the same signal. So, I just am wondering if a better extender would improve the signal quality in thise hard to reach places, and I thought mesh extenders could be an option. As you can tell, I don’t lnow much and I want to make a somewhat informed decision on a possible purchase.
Any help or advice is greatly appreciated.

Re: AX8 RAX75

The WN3000RPv3 is an old, single band extender. Not much performance in it Smiley Happy

There's many options. there's many types of mesh extenders.

You can step up to a dual band extender, a triband (my recommendation), or even a AX extender.

Each has its own pro's/con's. 

Tribands tend to have better throughput over the dual bands by a decent margin. 

AX will keep the network all AX compatible but are more expensive right now. 

 

so its kind of up to you but any of those are going to perform better than the  WN3000RPv3

Re: AX8 RAX75

Thank you very much. I think I’ll go with a Tri Band. Is there any one you would particularly recommend?

Re: AX8 RAX75

The only one I've used is the EX8000 but they're all pretty solid. 

there's the EX7500, EX7700, EX8000.

2 of the orbi satellites also have extender mode

RBS40V (with alexa/speaker)

RBS50Y (outdoor)

I think the RBS40v is on sale on amazon currently.
