Extending Wireless Network Range

by pmooney / November 4, 2003 5:10 AM PST

I currently have a wireless router positioned in one end of my house. However, i need the range increased to reach the other end of my house, hopefully on all 3 floors. Will a wireless range extender do this, or is there another product that will extend the range of my network?

I can place my repeater half way from the new location to the final location. There are many models that do this.

At a store and other places. They cost what they cost.

Why do I write this? I'm not a store and have no idea what city, country you hail from.
