WiFi repeater for Zyxel EMG2926

Can anyone tell me what hardware Videotron recommends to extend a Zyxel EMG2926 router?

 

Thanks,

 

Brad

Hi!

 

Through our Custom Wi-Fi service, techs install a combination of D-Link DHP-P610AV, DHP-W610AV, DHP-W611AV and DAP-1620. Those devices are freely available in the market and can be used to extend any WiFi network.

 

They're about 85$ in most stores, but Videotron bills 75$ a piece with free install, through said Custom Wi-Fi Service. Tech support can set the service call for you. 

 

Cheaper devices do exist, but cheaper isn't always better!

@PascalP

is there any plan to offer a "real" wireless mesh system?

repeaters are not as good as a real mesh system... with repeater, devices tend to stay connected to the "wrong" repeater until signal is completely lost and then switch to the other repeater. 

With a mesh system, devices will switch from one wireless to the other transparently.

Hello @zadigre,

 

Unfortunately, we do not have details on this yet. However, we take a close look at any service improvement opportunities and your interest in equipment that uses mesh Wi-Fi networking is well noted. 

 

Stay tuned!
