I would like to use two AC1200 Range Extenders in my home with my router. Is this possible? If so, can you pls provide guidance on configuring.
Re: WiFi extenders
Is it possible? Yes.
Should you do so? Depends.
I usually recommend if users are needing more than 1 extender to move to a wireless mesh system like netgear orbi or MK nighthawk.
Reason why is standard extenders drop throughput 50%. This happens because they have to use the same chip to go router----extender and then extender-----device. And they can't do both at once. so they're going to take a speed hit. this gets even worse if you daisy chain the extenders (router----->extender------>extender)
they can work if they're setup in a star configuration
But they can have issues when setup using a mesh setup as they can end up connected to each other.
so it gets more complicated.
Its why I usually recommend the move to a mesh system if needing more than 1 extender.
also in AP setup: RAXE500->EAX80
