The problem with WiFi extenders

WiFi extenders will extend the WiFi signal only at the strength of the original WiFi network at the point at which the extender is placed. This means that if the WiFi extender is positioned at the very edge of a WiFi network, it will only extend at that available signal strength. If that is, say, one bar of WiFi coverage, it’s only extending the wireless network at those one-bar speeds. To make it more confusing, if your stand near the extender, your device will show full wifi signal strength but this is not an indication of network speed.Our advice – Go for a wireless access  point or mesh system and give range extenders a miss.
