      Answer

      Although I purchased a Netgear N router unit that had sufficient published range, I was unable to get a Wi-Fi signal to consistently reach the far end of my home. I kept losing signal while doing homework on my laptop and constantly losing my signal while streaming NETFLIX. So I purchased a Netgear N series unit as a bridge and placed it in a convenient out of sight area more than half the length of my home. Now I get full bars and zero streaming interruptions. It was easy to connect to my main unit by logging on and following the connections steps that linked it to my main router. Worth the $60 at Best Buy

          Answer

          I am not too sure about this but I can pick up my wifi up to my garage which is about 50 feet away from the router in the house. With the router extender I would think the distance may be enhanced, but you would have to check it out to see if that is the case.

          Answer

          After setting it up once. It will use your Wi-Fi signal to get internet. Then, just plug any non wireless device into one of the Ethernet ports on the extender or set it near the outer area of your router's range and use the Wi-Fi from the extender to go further than you were able to before.

            You simply setup by following the instructions typing the password for your hotspot. It will then connect to it anytime it is within range.
