Our internet connections weren’t built for everyone working from home, streaming Netflix round the clock and logging-on via our variety of gadgets, all in one go.

And though there are talks of lowering streaming quality and strengthening broadband connections, the fact is that a lot of us are finding our WiFi is struggling to cope.

The thing is though, we need strong connection for our new home offices, so we can log into Zoom calls uninterrupted or stream the latest blockbuster directly into our living room with no buffering needed.

So what’s the solution?

Although you could buy a whole new router or upgrade your broadband package, both are pretty expensive options. Looking for an affordable fix? The answer comes in the form of WiFi extender that costs just £18.

The TP-Link 300Mbps Wi-Fi Range Extender & Booster connects to your router wirelessly, strengthening and expanding its signal into areas it can't on its own.

The device also reduces signal interference to ensure reliable Wi-Fi coverage throughout your home or office.

Press the WPS button on your router and the Range Extender button on your 850RE within two minutes to easily connect to the network.

Given how clever this little gadget is for the price of £18 it’s little wonder that it’s received an impressive 4.9 out of 5 on Argos’ website.

One customer commented: “This product was really simple to set up and has extended my Wi-fi signal significantly. This is a really good value for money buy!”

While another added: “Very impressed with this , good value, easy to set up and improved the WiFi connection, recommend!”
