How to supplement a Nighthawk extender


How to supplement a Nighthawk extender

I am using a Nighthawk X4 AC2200 Wifi Range Extender - Model EX7300 - in my home, but it does not give me sufficient coverage. Is there a way of adding a second extender to the existing network? If so, must I purchase the exact same model, or is there a less expensive extender I can use in combination with the Nighthawk? I am using the Windows 10 Home Operating System.

Re: How to supplement a Nighthawk extender

You can add a 2nd extender. 

just make sure to go:


Reason why is the extenders a can end up connected to each other if they're to close togther. 

If you have to daisy chain, you might want to set one with its own unique ssid instead of running it as mesh.
