Not sure what that is? A router?

RE: WIFI EXTENDER



It's a gadget that extends one's wifi. Captain Obvious here. Ha! I want to push my wifi further outside my home. I'd prefer to talk to people who have actual experience with one rather than to the person who wants to sell me one.

RE: WIFI EXTENDER

You place it about halfway between your wireless router and the location you want to receive the stronger signal. some have ethernet connectors so you can hardwire to a hub. others just act as repeaters.

RE: WIFI EXTENDER

some are weatherproof and have parabolic antennae so you can aim them in a certain direction to concentrate your signal delivery.

RE: WIFI EXTENDER



Have you had experience with one, Zero? I ask because I want to know if they do what they say they will do. I want to extend by many feet, not just a few.

Some are as simple as raiding your kitchen and using a vegetable steamer and crazy glue.

I have used one indoors, the Western Digital wifi extender that has an ethernet port to hardwire a desktop that is far from my source signal. I still use it to great advantage. I am guessing you want to use your wifi device at the pool or at an out building far from the house.

RE: WIFI EXTENDER

In NJ I have 2 acres and lots of trees. I was unsuccessful with wifi and resorted to a conduit with a 150ft ethernet cat6 cable and a switch at the other end. It proved to be the most reliable and strongest signal. At the source end I have wifi and 4 hard wired computers, and one desktop using the WD extender. At the receiving end I have wifi and 3 hard wired computers. It has been in place for 5 years and has not needed any repairs. The system has 3 seprate wifi broadcast signals each with their own passcodes.

People used to speculate. I don't think anyone knows for sure.

I feel sorry for that man. His sexuality is on the front page of every gossip rag in the land. I wonder if people in other countries are as nosy as so many Americans are.

Yeah..

I dunno, I always had you pegged as a female, you know, with all the shopped dick pics and stuff, but then..

That's like total dude speak. Or an IT professional chick. Are you an IT geek, Zero?
