Extend your wireless network’s range

Most wireless routers these days have a good range but in some homes like in Spain, where metal rods are used in concrete support pillars and with thick walls too in some cases, the wireless range is reduced significantly. Additionally, one thing a wireless signal will not do, is go around corners.

One solution is a wireless repeater. This simple device is configured to your wireless router settings along with its wireless code and then, simply plugged into a wall electrical socket at some distance away from the router. The signal is picked up and then repeated at strength for further distance connections. In some cases adding 2 or 3 of these devices can effectively make a signal turn corners if placed correctly.
