WIFI Extender Review – Today I am going to review a product from Xiaomi called Mi Wi-Fi Range Extender Pro. This device’s function is to strengthen the WIFI signal that already weak in your area. In my case I work mostly in the backyard, I still have a WIFI signal there but sometimes it disconnected for no reason. So the problem here is clearly signal stability. I decided to try this WIFI extender hoping that I will eliminate the problem.
If you have an internet speed problem then this device will not help, you must sort out the problem first. The device purpose is to extend the signal that already weak in certain location
Let start my review below and hope you find it useful

Wait until the process finish
You can set up SSID (WIFI network name) the same or different from the original WIFI name you want to extend the Signal. In my case, I choose a different name because with the same name I cannot choose which WIFI device I connected to.
If you cannot connect to Mi Wi-Fi Range Extender Pro from the apps, make sure to choose the country as China (Mainland) although your location is not there.
