Nice Wireless Repeating

The home network I have operating didn't exactly have much range - no signal downstairs and one side of the house away from the office was a total dead zone.

At least, it was sucky until today.

Via Amazon, the Amped Wireless High Power Wireless-N Smart Repeater and Range Extender (SR300) arrived today.

Setup was a snap. I plugged it into the laptop and it immediately found the wireless network. I configured it and added further password protection and in less than 10 minutes from the time I started opening the box it came in, it was up and running.

I now have a full signal in the basement and throughout the house.

Tash will be most pleased as she was annoyed that she couldn't sit with the laptop and do work in a variety of locations.

Darn nice product, with a very elegant and easy to use interface. The SR300 is a nice small and unobtrusive rectangle with two antennae poking out from behind a picture frame in a central spot of the house so it can repeat and amplify the signal coming from the office. A great and pretty inexpensive way to end dead spots around the house.
