We found an easy way for non-techie people to boost the WiFi signal inside their home. While the name may be intimidating, the Netgear N300 WiFi Signal Extender (Model EX2700) (available on Amazon) is a quick and easy way to boost the WiFi signal inside your home. NO MORE DEAD ZONES. NO MORE INTERRUPTED STREAMING. After months of Googling how to boost your WiFi signal, and finding nothing but super technical instructions, we we're pleased to find a solution that didn't require our inner MacGyver.
If parts of your home don't receive a strong signal, you probably need an WiFi range extender to provide coverage in the dead zones of your home. After careful research, we now know the difference between "boosting" and "extending" the WiFi signal. The illustration above shows how your router may be too far away from parts of your home. With a Netgear N300 WiFi Extender, you can create a copy of your wireless network and create coverage in hard to reach areas like basements, garages, and possibly your yard.
WiFi has become a necessary utility in many homes. People are choosing to "cut the cord" to cable subscriptions and signing up for steaming viewing services like Amazon Prime Video, Rabbit TV, and Netflix. Instead of listening to CD's and MP3 files, we're streaming our favorite artists with iTunes Music, Spotify, and Soundcloud, all of which work best with a strong Internet connection.
The Netgear WiFi Range Extender is Small
We ordered our WiFi extender from Amazon using our Amazon Prime membership for FREE shipping. The extender is very small. It comes in a recyclable brown box as seen below.
The content of the box are simple. It includes a quick start guide and the WiFI extender. No power chords or adapters, because it plugs directly into an electrical socket.
The instructions were pretty easy to follow. When reading the reviews, a reviewer said they weren't clear, but that wasn't the case at all. The review was years old. They must have fixed the problem since then. You can read the Amazon reviews for yourself here.
