If you're looking for a small, sleek Wi-Fi extender, the D-Link DAP is a great choice. It's not only the smallest of the extenders, but it's also easy to set up and use. If you're looking for an extender that allows you to connect a smart TV or gaming console to your network, though, this option doesn't include that feature.
