WiFi Range Extender questions.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello,
So when i'm upstairs at my desk, the wifi signal isn't strong enough so i can put my phone it, so i'd like to buy an extender, this one;

Now, alot of people say they work, but poorly, so, is this true? do they work but poorly?
And, my modem is placed downstairs next to my tv, where do put the extender in the contact? next to my modem, or can i put it in one upstairs?
And once hooked up, can more than 1 laptop connect to it?
Greetings.

It's a WiFi repeater.... it takes a weak wireless signal and rebroadcasts so the signal is strong again. You should place it somewhere that gets a decent signal from your main router.

The Ethernet port is just so you can connect a device to it and use it as a wireless bridge as well.
