You probably deal with enough distractions when working from home, and spotty internet service shouldn’t be one of them. If you suffer from an unreliable connection, a network extender (also known as a WiFi extender, range extender, booster, or repeater) could help by extending the reach of your home’s WiFi network.
While a booster can improve coverage if you have a dead zone or two, it will not increase your bandwidth or speed, and it can blanket every part of a large, multi-story home. The extender works by connecting wirelessly to a WiFi router and creating a second network that reaches a different part of the house. It’s not a perfect system, as it can result in some reduction of speed in the extended network, but considering the average cost is only $30 to $140, it could be worth a try. To learn more about network extenders, including what they can — and what they cannot — do, take a look at this handy infographic.
