I’ve been Googling all day and can not find a reliable long range WiFi extender. I’ve been using a ring chime pro to bridge the gap but it doesn’t work. Any advice on what is a good long range WiFi extender?
I have a sky router.

Depends on what you mean by "long range". Depending on distance, the band you're trying to use and what the walls between the router and ring chime are made of, there may not be any decent solutions.

Since most routers these days can also act as extenders, the market has shrunk for these devices. But the last I looked, the NETGEAR EX8000 (reviewed) was pretty good. Don't bother with any of the little wall-plugged extenders. I doubt they'd do the job.
