  • Can you please explain what are the differences between those 3 models.

    • The expensive one with the fancy design says it can do ax (wifi 6) but I'm not sure on that or that there would be any benefit in doing so thru a repeater

  • I have used previous model. it claims to be long range but doesn't work. Old router was better than that.
    I wouldn't use this brand again.

    These are not very good if you are looking to extend your wifi coverage using one of these as a wireless repeater. The advertised 1200Mbps maximum bandwidth is made up of 900Mbps for the 5GHz band and 300Mbps for 2.4Ghz, but keep in mind that in repeater mode half of that bandwidth will be consumed by the link between the extender and your router.

      Greeting for WAVLINK team. Repeater is a network device to restore and regenerate signals, which will inevitably cause some signal loss. The good thing is that it can expend the wifi range to where your main router can not reach.

  • Wavlink routers (not Wi-Fi-extenders) have been reported to contain back doors. Worth doing your own research with any products that can view your network traffic.

    • The link you gave says "Unfortunately, the affected devices go beyond just routers: we discovered that Wavlink’s wifi repeaters have the same backdoors."

      A wifi repeater is the same as a wifi extender, so this device is very likely to have the security problems that are listed. Downvoting for that reason.

      In the article they pointed out an attack on the Internet server, trying to find out a bac kdoor through a public IP address. The Chinese IP in the report is not related to our c ompany and the IP was trying to upload a malicious file on the router. However, the ar ticle has already clarified for us that the response packet returned to the 404 error "Fil e Not Found", which means absolutely no effect on the router. Currently, there’s a possibility to access the router from YOUR local network, meant to be checking your Internet status or firmware upgrade. Once again, we don't have remote access to any router, and therefore not any chance to access a bac kdoor, if there’s any backdoor at all.
      If you have any questions, please contact us via [email protected]. Our Support Team would appreciate the opportunity to follow up with you in order to properly address the concern.

      • the ar ticle has already clarified for us that the response packet returned to the 404 error "Fil e Not Found"

        It doesn't say that in the article, and the rest of your answers seem to be logical fallacies of the "red herring" type: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_fallacies#Red_herring_...

        The Chinese IP in the report is not related to our c ompany

        The article doesn't list an IP address, so that's an invalid claim. And the article expressly points out that "We never claimed that the Chinese IP address attempting to exploit the backdoors and vulnerabilities was related to Wavlink. That was simply to confirm that the vulnerabilities were being actively exploited, which we observed on our test device."

        I'm not going to argue any further on this topic, I'll let OzBargainers draw their own conclusions.
