And does it provide any advantages over a single-band wifi extender? Or will the dual-band nature of the wifi extender be moot?
I have an Actiontec MI424WR wifi router (which is single-band), and I'm deciding which wifi extender to get. My house is too large to directly connect a second router to the Actiontec MI424WR router via cable (and my parents wouldn't like that).
So I'm thinking of getting a wifi extender instead, as my room is quite far away from the wifi router. The wifi still works, but the signal is often only 1-2 bars strong.
