Linksys WRE54G

details: Wireless-G Range Expander
hardware type: Wireless Range Extender
date added: 2011-07-27
updated: 2013-04-10
Unlike adding a traditional access point to your network to expand wireless coverage, the Wireless-G Range Expander does not need to be connected to the network by a data cable. Just put it within range of your main access point or wireless router and it will repeat the signal to remote wireless devices.

This "relay station" or "repeater" approach saves wiring costs and helps to build wireless infrastructure by driving signals into even those distant, reflective corners and hard-to-reach areas where wireless coverage is spotty and cabling is impractical.

Installation is a snap with the Range Expander's Auto Configuration button. Just plug it in and press the button. The Expander will find your wireless network and configure itself automatically.
