Great wifi extender, great range!

on 4/24/2013

Had trouble spots in my house where my main wifi router had trouble reaching. I would only get 0.5mb - 1.0mb, when I had a signal. Now I'm able to get 8mb-12mb in former dead spots! Highly recommend for extending the range of your wifi!

Bought this to have another wi fi access point on the other end of the office. When I connect the base unit to the router and plug it to the power outlet, the wi fi strength of the wireless router increase dramatically. I didn't even have to plug the access point in.
