Extend Your Reach
Have you ever found yourself in a wireless dead zone in a business or your house? Of course you have, while the new wireless routers on the market are quite strong, they aren’t perfect. Now a days we can purchase wireless extenders which aren’t too incredibly hard to use and they are perfect for adding a bit more power to your existing wireless network, or even hard wiring your computer into the wireless network without using the router. The business class extenders can be a bit more complicated for logging in, but you just need a computer and an active wireless connection and you can create an even stronger wireless network. We use a couple in our building to provide a strong network between multiple floors. You can find the extenders pretty much anywhere these days and they are not terribly expensive.
