Which Wi-Fi extender should I buy?

Hi, I have a dual-band router that is not reaching all the rooms in the house, specifically my brothers room and mine as well, all the way on the other side of the house. I want to buy an extender for the WiFi, but I don’t know which one to purchase because all this stuff in reading about extenders is that you have to buy certain ones for certain brands. Do you guys happen to know which extenders I should be able to buy and use? Is buying an extender the best route to take?


Software/Hardware used:
Linksys EA9500 Dual Band Router

Hello,

I am using TP-LINK TL-WA850RE at home. It works well. Distance between wifi router and Tp-Link wifi extender is approximately 13 meter and there is few walls between these devices.

    It depends... If you require use of the seamless roaming feature, you'll need extenders that support it. If not, it may depend on how much money you want to spend. Other factors might also limit choices. Without a list of requirements, there's no good way to know what is needed.

    As you are using Linksys router, it is better to use the same product to get more gains. You can consider Linksys range extender (specially Mu-Mimo) for the same, while other brands are also there. It can works with almost all Wi-Fi routers.
