Suggestions Range Extender

I have a dead zone in the far corner of my house and was considering adding a range extender to my XR500.  Can anyone suggest a reliable compatible extender?  Thanks!

Re: Suggestions Range Extender

I'd recommend the tri-band line of extenders. Standard extenders (single/dual band) drop throughput 50% and increase latency. The tribands have a dedicated 5ghz chip just for router---extender communication that decreases that latency and doesn't take that same speed hit. 

 

Tribands: 

EX7500

EX7700

EX8000

RBS40V (has extender mode)

RBS50Y (also has extender mode) 

Current setup: CM2000-> RBKE963B-> Trendnet TEG-S380-> GS716T-> pi-hole
also in AP setup: RAXE500->EAX80
