Tenda A9 is a wireless N300 universal Wifi range extender, which increases the existing WiFi coverage and enhances the signal strength. With one button extension, smart signal LED, wall-mount design and universal compatibility, it is easy for users to boost wireless networking. A9 is an excellent option for you to drop WiFi dead zones and optimize your networking.


After using this wireless router, we found the following benefits of Tenda ext_repeater wireless extender :

  • Fast Two-step Setup – No Complicated Network Settings

Users can install the A9 by merely two buttons: the WPS button on the home router and, the Range Extender button on the A9. The device automatically validates and secures the connection, and immediately extends the network reception to additional rooms, courts, and other areas of the home otherwise influenced by poor existing coverage.

If a user’s router doesn’t include a WPS button, the A9 is designed with easy setup for smartphones or tablets. The plug design enables you to place the Tenda A301 immediately in any power outlet and improves your wireless signals from there. No matter how large your workplace or home is, you can enjoy smooth, undisturbed wifi coverage with Tenda ext_repeater.

Just plug in the A301 range extender into a power socket or extension cord. The built-in WPS is the only button to be pressed once it’s ready. You’ll have to press the WPS button on your router first.

Tenda also includes a manual setup option for the few chances where the WPS should fail, or your router doesn’t highlight a WPS button and function. There is a sticker at the back of the unit that explains how to connect to the setup interface from where you manually can connect it to your WiFi network as well as define various settings.

  • Dual External High-Gain Antennas Stay Connected

Tenda A9 transmits data at up to 300Mbps using the 802.11b/g/n standard – external, router-quality antennas reliably cover an additional 200 square meters of the home or office. The Extender seamlessly extends the network: users do not need to reconnect to a different SSID. As a wireless adapter, the Tenda ext_repeatercan connect a wired PC via a secure Ethernet connection, taking full advantage of the dual antennas.

The Tenda A301 will work well with any standard WiFi router which is capable of HD video streaming and gaming alike. However, this Tenda ext_repeater is mostly for web surfing due to the older standards used. The wireless range extender is using the 2.4GHz band, and it is compatible with 802.11 b, g, and n devices. With just 300 Mbps at our disposal with maximum coverage, the N300 standard surely isn’t the fastest.

The WPS button is on the front, and an LED field encloses it with four sections. The LEDs have two colors to show more information and also are easy to distinguish. It will show if it has power, is connecting, how good the wireless signal is and also show when the LAN port is being used.

  • Attractive, Unobtrusive Design and Easy Placement

Plugging in directly into wall outlets, the A9 is minimal and features a patterned, beautiful design. Unlike other adapters, it won’t block the second outlet. A front signal-strength LED helps users find the perfect place within range of the primary router – green means a secure connection, yellow means it needs to be placed closer.

The two external antennas help with reliable coverage over those who only own internal antennas. You can alter the angle up to 90 degrees. Though it would have been great if the internal antennas could be turned or replaced with aftermarket antennas, Tenda ext_repeater does not come with this flexibility.

The performance of the A301 extender is rated for a max EIRP to a route of 58mW and max EIRP to a device of 98mW. The range is measured for up to 100 meters inside and up to 300 meters outside. It shows compatibility with 64 and 128-bit WEP, WPA, WPA2, Mix WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK wireless encryptions of AES, TKIP, and TKIP&AES types. Wireless Access Control, as well as MAC filtering, is also included.
