Wireless internet is no longer a luxury, it’s a necessity. If you’re paying for internet service, then expecting to have full Wi-Fi coverage throughout your home or business shouldn’t be too much to ask. Unfortunately, unless you shelled out some serious dough for your wireless router, you’ve probably become all too familiar with Wi-Fi dead zones. Netgear agrees that is no way to live. TheirUniversal Wi-Fi Range Extender ($70) provides a powerful and elegantly simple solution to this dilemma. Having just installed one in my home, I can vouch for the simplicity of this device. If you have a power outlet between your router and your Wi-Fi dead zone then you’re set. Once powered on, the extender finds your current network and sends out a repeating signal, providing a potent extension of your network. Presto, your third floor half-bath now has more signal strength than your local Starbucks. As the name suggests, Netgear’s extender is indeed universal, allowing for the extension of any network signal while also maintaining your security standards. Go on; bask in your network superiority.
