Buy Belkin F9K1106 WiFi Booster

The Belkin F9K1106 wifi booster is designed to be big, iconic and meant to stand out. It has internal antennas, four LAN ports, but no USB or audio jacks and ships with a stand on which it sits.

Just like the Belkin F9K1122, it doesn’t perform well in environments where there are a high number of WiFi networks, suffering significantly from interference. This Belkin WiFi booster clocks in at just 112.7 Mbps in 2.4 Ghz and has a range of approximately 125 feet. In terms of bandwidth, the Belkin F9K1106 had roughly half that of the Linksys RE6500 and D-Link DAP 5120.

At its relatively low cost you may look at the Belkin F9K1106 as being a steal, however, if you’re looking for a WiFi booster that offers balanced performance than you may want to look at some of the better options on the market, many of which we cover on our best WiFi boosters page.

Buy Linksys RE6500 WiFi Booster

The Linksys RE6500 is a dual-band WiFi booster with two external 3dBi dipole antennae that can be aimed to improve signal range and quality. These antennae are pretty good, however, should you feel the need to replace them with higher quality ones you can easily do so. It has four LAN ports and a 3.5mm audio jack, however it unfortunately doesn’t have a USB port.

Setting up the Linksys RE6500 wifi booster is fairly simple, with its in-built software automating most of the work, including all settings on both bands, making it one of the easiest WiFi boosters to get up and running with. One thing to note however, this Linksys WiFi booster will likely setup its SSID to be the same as that of your network, which can make troubleshooting more difficult should you encounter any problems when setting the booster up.
