No more slow WiFi at home: this repeater speeds up the Internet for only 11 euros

He Wifi It is the most popular solution when connecting home devices to Internet. Its comfort and convenience have made it the preferred option compared to connections by Ethernet cable, approximately 70% compared to 30%. But WiFi, although it avoids the hassle of having to run cables throughout the house, has its drawbacks.

The main one of them is the decrease in coverage as one moves away from the router. Walls, doors and furniture reduce the speed of the connection which, in no case, even with the device next to the router, will reach the one provided by an Ethernet cable. One solution to this very common problem is to use a WiFi repeater. Also known as a signal amplifier or network extender, it is a small device that plugs into a wall and amplifies the WiFi signal making it reach stronger places in the house where it does so weakly.

There are many WiFi repeaters and in all price ranges, but if you want a simple and economical solution you can find them from prices as cheap as the €10.99 that the ME10 from the Mercusys brand costs and is currently among the 10 best sellers on Amazon.


This device expands the coverage on the frequency of 2.4GHz and allows speeds of up to 300Mbps. Its use is as simple as connecting it in a place where the signal is still strong enough to provide greater intensity from that point, something for which the device has an LED indicator that shows if you have a good connection at the chosen location -green- or if it is too far from the router -red-. You just have to press the button WPS on the ME10 and on the router to connect.

It also has a Ethernet port with which it is possible, for example, to directly connect the laptop by cable, which avoids speed losses from that point, or if you already have a wired network, connect it to it and use the ME10E as a WiFi access point for the wireless home devices.


This is one of the cheapest WiFi repeaters that can be found and one of the best rated on Amazon, but it may not be suitable if you have a router and devices compatible with WiFi networks on the frequency. 5GHz. This offers faster, more channels and better manages a large number of connected devices, but it also loses intensity more easily than networks on the 2.4 GHz frequency. ME30 from Mercusys offers coverage on both frequencies and a combined speed of 1.2 Gbps: 300 Mbps on 2.4 GHz and 867 Mbps on 5 GHz. Its price on Amazon is 19.99 euros.
