We use Netgear because we have a Netgear router - works flawlessly. Probably best to go with one that is from the same make as you router.

We first were using another make (Fritzbox which is a highly rated German make). But we had nothing but trouble with it.

Best is to use one from the same make as the router. But be aware that those extenders have to be placed midway between the router and the PC. Better check first whether that is possible - e.g. electric outlet.
