5 Great WiFi Boosters in Malaysia to Improve Your Signal

Wi-Fi boosters (also known as extenders or repeaters)  are designed for one main purpose: to enhance and extend your existing Wi-Fi connections to weak or dead zones.  In this post we highlight some WiFi boosters in Malaysia that you can buy. These devices can be great for large homes and offices and when your wireless router is placed in an inconvenient location.

However, there is a downfall to extending your wireless Internet connection over air nonetheless. The farther out you expand that wireless connection using a Wi-Fi extender, the slower that internet connection typically becomes. Although, if you’re not looking at streaming games or  videos, then you usually don’t need to worry about that point as much.

If you are keen on getting a Wi-Fi extender to broaden your Wi-Fi reach, consider buying these Wi-Fi boosters in Malaysia.

Aztech HomePlug WiFi Booster

The Aztech Wi-Fi Repeater is simple and easy to set up. Its main goal, like most Wi-Fi extenders is to boost the wireless signals to areas not reached by router or access points. Plugging it directly into any power socket around, it will grab the available wireless connection and extend its wireless Internet capabilities. It will pickup wireless signals and bounce them off to blind spot areas where wireless signals are unstable or inconsistent, thus providing stable Internet connection in areas where Internet is needed. It also scores point in its portability and low price tag of RM130, available online at Lazada. It’s cousin, Aztech Wifi and 300Mbps Wireless Extender, is available at a lower cost of RM113.

AirPort Extreme (Extra Mention)

Apple AirPort Extreme

Apple’s latest AirPort Extreme wireless router isn’t exactly a Wi-Fi booster per se. It is more of a beefed up version of its older cousin, the tinier more compact wireless router called the AirPort Express. The AirPort Extreme has 3 Ethernet ports, dual-band connection to take advantage of all wireless frequencies, which gives you better connection strength and allows up to 50 users at a given time.

Available at RM649 from the Malaysian online Apple Store, it is a great way for Mac users to connect to powerful Wi-Fi signals around the house or even a small office. The AirPort Extreme is a different solution than buying a Wi-Fi extender, as it already boosts the signal from the main power source.  Thus you hopefully won’t need another Wi-Fi booster.

Great article, very informative and precise. Two questions though, how many of these are still viable options in 2015? and are there better & more reasonable options available in the market today?
