Extending wifi range
« on: October 04, 2012, 02:27:34 PM »
Wanted to share an interesting gadget I just discovered.

My N7 is a "walk-around" device, but as I move from the 2nd floor of my house (where my wifi router is located) to the 1st floor my signal goes from "excellent" to "poor"

I wanted to call to your attention an interesting gadget to extend your wifi coverage and solve this problem.

The "N300 Universal Wi-Fi extender form Edimax" is about the size of a multi-outlet power connector.  It's easy to sync this with your wifi-router and relocate this gadget anywhere in your house when your wifi signal needs  a boost.l.  It simply plugs into the nearest electrical outlet and regenerates your wifi signal.  Can move it from outlet to outlet without loosing synch.  Costs $50 (less at Amazon).  Found mine on-sale at NewEgg for $25.

So now my N7 signal strength is "excellent" throughout all areas of my multi-floor house.

I've used the Linksys (CISCO) version for a while, but now use a DD-WRT flashed router as an extender/repeater.
