Has your home wireless network ever left you disappointed? There is a good chance that if you have not upgraded your router or at least gotten a Wi-Fi extender that your home wireless network has left you frustrated at some point in the past. Homes with multiple stories often report having wi-fi issues trying to connect all of their devices. Most of the time, this is pretty simple to fix. Routers only have so much range, and in many homes, there are dead spots with a little to no signal. A high-quality Wi-Fi range extender will help to get rid of those dead spots and improve your network.
