WiFi 6 repeaters are ideal for extending the coverage of a router with this latest connectivity standard, which is faster, more efficient and with greater range. In the case of repeaters of operators, we can use them to amplify coverage through WiFi, or extend it using an Ethernet cable and create a new access point at maximum speed and power.
More than 5 Gbps of speed thanks to WiFi 6
The WiFi 6 It is available on more and more devices, such as mobile phones, tablets, computers and even on Smart TV. Therefore, it makes sense to update our network equipment to get the most out of it from our devices. The repeater has two antennas (2 × 2) for the 2.4 GHz band and 4 antennas (4 × 4) for the 5 GHz band, being able to reach speeds of 573 Mbps in the 2.4 GHz band, and 4.8 Gbps on the 5 GHz.
The repeater has two Ethernet ports just like the previous model. Thanks to this, we can plug in a connector that goes directly to the router, and from there use it to repeat WiFi signal. With the other Ethernet connector we can take another cable to a computer or to the Orange TV set, being able to basically enjoy having a router in another part of the house. The repeater is integrated into the same local network and has smart WiFi, so the mobile or any other device automatically changes the access point depending on which one is closer.
The configuration of the router is very simple, being able to use the WPS button to synchronize it with the router, or simply by connecting the Ethernet cable and accessing the configuration web. The repeater has lighting of different colors and shapes depending on the type of connection we have made.
It costs only 19.95 euros, but on loan
The price of this repeater is also much lower than that of the previous model, costing only 19.95 euros. Of course, in exchange for having such a low price, the repeater is necessary return it once we unsubscribe from the operator. To get hold of it, it is necessary to contact the operator by phone, in addition to accepting a one-year stay. You can call the 1470 so that they inform you, as well as contract Orange fiber rates here.
The Orange WiFi 6 repeater can be used with the Livebox Fibra or the Livebox 6/6 +. However, if we are going to use it in amplifier mode, it will be necessary to use the WiFi 6 network of the Livebox 6 to be able to replicate the WiFi 6 network. Otherwise, the user experience will not be the best.
As we can see, it is a very affordable option to have a WiFi 6 repeater at home, since the cheapest repeaters or routers with WiFi 6 that we can use to extend our network at home usually cost something more, although in exchange we have them in property forever.
