Extend your Wireless Range for Whole Home Coverage

Linksys Wireless-N Range Extender

Linksys Wireless-N Range Extender

So you have a wireless network in your home but you have found that you can’t sip on lemonade from the backyard while surfing the internet,  you can’t send the kids down to the basement for their daily video gaming tournment to get some peace and quiet and tranforming all that space in the attic into your dream home office seems impossible because your wireless signal won’t reach.  Well that is all about to change with the new Linksys Wireless-N Range Extender (RE1000).   

The new Linksys Wireless-N Range Extender helps take your wireless network signal and basically “boost” it so that you can get a signal in more places throughout your home.  This will help eliminate deadspots as well so if you have specific places in your home that don’t get a good signal, the range extender will help deliver the signal to that spot.  

What is also cool about the Range Extender is that it also acts as a bridge – which means if you connect a game console, Internet enabled TV, a media server or networked Blu-Ray player and get them access to your wireless network and the Internet. If you wanted all the entertainment devices connected just plug in a switch into the Ethernet port on the range extender and you have them all wirelessly connected! Its like a signal booster and a bridge all in one.
