I might get the Netgear AC1200 WiFi extender to boost my WiFi in my home. My WiFi PC loses its WiFi connection. Do WiFi extenders work?

    IF there were no other WiFi systems within half a mile, it would work but half your transfer speed; the extender has to receive, then re-transmit everything.

    With other WiFi, it will be far slower than that. The 2.4GHz band is vastly over used and only one device can transmit at a time, without interference and loss of data. The more devices there are than "hear" each other, the slower everything gets.

    Use ethernet or get Homeplug units, and leave WiFi for things that cannot possibly connect any other way. You will never regret it.
