Does it matter if i use a Nighthawk R7300DST without the DST and with a AC1900 Wifi Range Extender ?

Does it matter if i use a Nighthawk R7300DST without the DST and with a AC1900 Wifi Range Extender ?

 

 

I bought the AC1900 wifi range extender because i thought it was a better solution for my wifi instead of the smaller device that is the DST?

 

Do i have to use the DST in order to make my wifi work better or can i keep using the wifi range extender?

You should be able to use it without the DST.

like @DarrenM says, you can use the extender without issues.

I'd check into trying the powerline since you already have it. You might be surprised. the downfall to using a wireless extender is that it take roughly a 50% bandwidth hit because it has to recieve and retransmit. The powerline device doesn't have that downfall. Plus extenders increase latency.
