Review: The 5 Best Wireless Access Points (2023)

Wireless access points and wireless range extenders are often compared to similar, or even erroneously interchangeable, devices. However, they are completely different devices.

The access point can not only further expand your existing wireless network, but also expand the wired function of the network by plugging the Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port on the access point and additional devices. The access point accesses the network directly through the router through the Ethernet cable. The router uses power over Ethernet (PoE) to power the access point. It then becomes a wireless network access point, broadcasting its own individual signals over an internal radio. Then, multiple wireless devices connect to the access point through wireless standards, such as Wi Fi or Bluetooth, rather than to the router.


The wireless range extender actually acts as a simpler access point. They are also often referred to as "wireless repeaters". Like access points, they can also enhance existing wireless signals, but only by amplifying existing signals from the router to their area. If range extenders and other devices have Ethernet ports, they can also extend the network to one or two additional devices through Ethernet cables.
