If you are surfing the Web on a smartphone, tablet or laptop near your WiFi router, you likely get a strong signal. Move a bit farther away from the router and the connection will get weaker. It isn’t uncommon that there is a location in your home or office that gets a very weak signal or none at all.
If this is a problem for you, a WiFi range extender can boost the signal so you get a strong connection in the previously problematic places. There are a number of such devices available and today I’m featuring the NETGEAR N300 Wi-Fi Range Extender Essentials Edition which currently sells at Amazon for under $30.
It supports all of the major WiFi standards, though it doesn’t use the very fastest speeds available in some routers. Rarely does anyone have service fast enough to truly take advantage of those high speeds so it isn’t that big of a deal. It simply gives you a great bang for the bucks.
