ZyXEL PLA5236KIT AC900 Powerline Wireless Extender Kit

Posted on 19 April 2017

ZyXEL, a popular manufacturer of networking devices, has now introduced the PLA5236KIT AC900 Powerline Wireless Extender Kit. This extender has greatly fulfilled the needs of people who wanted their internet to work well even in every corner of the house. In fact, it is a better choice rather than spending more on TP-Link Deco M5 or a new Wi-Fi connection.

The proposed price of this device is $85. It includes a power line WI-FI access point and a power line adapter. At first, the adapter is connected to an existing network and plugged directly into the wall socket. Then, the access point is plugged at another socket in another part of the house. This extends the home network to the access point.

For this extender to work well, the electric wiring must be attached continuously and the units must be plugged directly into the wall socket. The setting up of this device might be challenging for those who are inexperienced, as ZyXEL products have to be connected to a web interface.

Other ZyXEL products have been great but the PLA5236KIT AC900 Powerline Wireless Extender Kit failed to make a strong impression. Various tests were performed and the average internet speed using the device was 250MBs, much higher than the average speed you get from an extender, which is 100MBs. It is important to note the extender gives a good speed when close to your mobile device but if it’s a bit far away, the speed falls to less than 100MBs, which is a matter of concern.

It is obviously the most affordable choice and is effective as well to some extent. You only get what you pay for as you cannot expect much from it. It will simply share a moderate cable and increase the range of the connection. If this does not fulfill your needs, you should check other devices.

The bottom line is that it gives a good service when compared to its price. Nowadays, none of these types of products are available at an affordable rate, so people must buy this instead of spending high amounts of money on any other device, without compromising on performance.
