In May last year, Strategist contributor Hanna Hanra found that her home Wi-Fi couldn’t handle Zoom, Skype, and large downloads — so she took a punt on a well-reviewed extender. She was besotted, writing: “You don’t even need to put in the password. You literally plug it into the wall socket in the same room as your router, some lights flicker and it appears in your Wi-Fi options.
The real genius is that it smoothly connects to your electronic device when you move out of range of your original router, with no disconnection between the two. It mercifully works with any router or broadband provider, and as I have gratefully discovered, can push the Wi-Fi through even the thickest stone wall and up stairs.”
The Netgear Wi-Fi Booster is now 20 percent off (£28, down from £35) and available for next-day delivery, should you have an urgent Zoom call scheduled.
