2.4GHz is an overused band and is being replaced with 5GHz. In 2018, I wouldn't recommend getting anything 2.4GHz, especially a 300Mbps device which will realistically give you about 20Mbps max. There are many gigabit (AC1200) ones out now for a little bit more, and those are definitely worth the investment if you need one.

Not true, today we still have a lot of small and cheap devices in our home that are using 2.4GHz. Thermostats, printers, budget phones, wifi sensors, etc. Yes, this band is overused, yes we need to try to stick to 5GHz as much as possible, but sometimes we have no choice...

True, but these IoT devices or other 2.4GHz devices can't really benefit from the extra speed/range that an extender can give them. I'm not saying use a 5GHz only router or AP, but a 2.4GHz is not needed unless for a very specific case.

Question regarding these wifi extenders, If I plug it in and set it up with my phone and then I plug an ethernet cable going from the extender to my iptv box, will the iptv box receive internet? I've been thinking of upgrading my existing powerline adapter I use on my iptv

IMO these are junk
I tried one about 2 months ago
Didn't help anything
Sent it back to Amazon for a refund

Just my opinion tho
Maybe others have had better luck than I did

Would not buy it as there are better alternatives from reputable brands.
Poor merchant reputation: located in China, no warranty stated, means only 30days Amazon warranty
And the person who posted clearly works for the company.
I'd stay away..
