This problem can be solved by the use of a Wireless Extender, also known as a Range Extender. The job of a Wireless Extender is to take the signals from the primary router or access point and rebroadcast it to create another network of a secondary level. Because of this repetition of signal, it has been named Wireless Repeater also.


Using a Wireless Extender will give you the following benefits:

  • Enhancing the Signal Strength- By repeating the signal from the router, a Wireless Extender amplifies the signal strength. This allows the user to access internet at a good speed even when sitting away from the router. You wouldn’t have to change your or the router’s location. The Wireless Extender should be placed somewhere between the router and your computer to increase the range.
  • Overcoming Obstructions- The signals from your Wi-Fi get weakened because of the walls and doors it has to pass through. By using a Wireless Repeater, the impact of these hurdles can be reduced and the signal strength will remain equally strong at a father location.
  • Useful for larger spaces- The best use of a Wireless Extender can be made at large spaces such as in offices where many people have to constantly use the Wi-Fi for work and a good signal strength is required at all times. In many shopping complexes and other public areas wireless internet can be made available to many people by using this technology.  

A Wireless Extender acts as a bridge between your computer and the signal source. To derive maximum benefits from this product, buy it from a reliable source only.
