If you want to optimize your home network before you connect a Wi-Fi extension, you can buy a long phone or network cable and lead it from the phone's telephone jack to a central point in your home. This would lead to a slightly better Wi-Fi connectivity in more areas in your home. This will not prevent the signal to ghost at the bottom of the garden, but if it is the furthest corner of the last room you are trying to reach a central placement of your router can work for you.

Choosing your brands and models Wifi Extender
Without wishing to dig deeper into the brands or the best models of Wifi Extender, as this guide is not intended for an extensive Wifi Extender purchase guide, we recommend you simply purchase the same Wifi extender as your router. For example, if you have a Netgear router, you buy a Netgear Wifi Extender. And use a Motorola Wifi amplifier if you have a Motorola router.
The reason for this simple recommendation is that although WiFi is a standardized technology, different manufacturers can always design or code things a little differently. Some manufacturers implement small differences or "functionalities" to increase their performance and can use different terms or technological terms.
These small differences can lead to unexpected errors or difficult to diagnose problems. Compatibility is the first consideration when choosing your ideal Wifi Extender. Save yourself from possible problems simply by going to the same brand setting. This way, you only need to deal with a set of terms or even customer support, rather than cross-references and search.Minidiva 300Mbps Wireless-N WiFi Mini Router Repeater Range Extender Booster 802.11n/g/b
Signal Booster vs. Range Extender
Some people confuse signal amplification with most commercially available Wifi range extensions. Signal amplifiers are usually connected to your router or computer peripherals to increase or increase the signal strength. Range extensions are often stand-alone devices that repeat signals from your network.
Signal amplifiers can be limited so that even if your routers can send signals to devices, your client devices may not have the ability to transmit this information. However, they can be great for 1-way transmissions. Signal amplifiers can still have performance problems when the wireless signal is blocked by several walls or metals.
How does a Wi-Fi repeater work?
A WiFi repeater actually contains two wireless routers, similar to the wireless router that you already have in your home or office. One of these wireless routers selects the existing Wi-Fi network. It then transmits the signal to the other wireless router, which transmits the amplified signal.
How do I install a Wi-Fi Repeater?
Wi-Fi repeaters are very easy to install. All you have to do is place the repeater in a slot that can receive your existing Wi-Fi network, and then install the power supply. You can then use the computer to connect to the Wi-Fi Repeater and enter the logon data and password of your existing wireless network so that the Wi-Fi repeater can connect and expand.
