NETGEAR announced the easy and affordable solution for
eliminating wireless dead spots at home: the new NETGEAR Universal WiFi Range
Extender (WN3000RP), now available from major retailers worldwide.
A rapidly expanding constellation of Internet-enabled
mobile and entertainment devices including tablets, smartphones, Blu-ray
players, game consoles, laptops and televisions are connecting to WiFi networks
from around the house and even outside on decks and patios.
A big driver for this trend is the increasing
availability of movies, TV shows and other video through online streaming.
Consumers want to watch streaming video on their laptops, tablets and
Internet-capable televisions, creating greater demand for strong WiFi
This makes WiFi dead spots more unwelcome than ever, but the answer up to now – running an Ethernet cable
through walls and ceilings to add a second wireless access point – has been
inconvenient and complicated.
The NETGEAR Universal
WiFi Range Extender increases the coverage of home networks by automatically
repeating the wireless signal from a WiFi router or gateway.
The extender is a single, compact, self-contained white
cube that plugs into any AC outlet. No new wiring is required, and setup takes
only a few minutes. When paired with routers that have a “Push ‘N’
Connect” (WiFi Protected Setup) button, the only configuration required is
simply pressing the “Push”N’ Connect” button on the router and then
on the extender.
Dynamic LED indicators on the extender help find the best
location for WN3000RP in the home, usually about halfway between the router and
the wireless dead spot.
The extender supports 802.11b/g/n and works with all
common WiFi security standards including WEP, WPA and WPA2.
Today consumers are connecting more and more wireless
mobile devices and Internet-capable TVs to their networks, from more places in
the home. These devices are often used for high-bandwidth activities, such as
video streaming and multi-player games, that require rock-solid WiFi
connections,” said Damir Skripic, product line manager for Connected
Entertainment at NETGEAR.
The NETGEAR Universal WiFi Range Extender makes it
possible to enjoy a robust wireless connection in remote corners of the house
or outdoors, in places that now have low or no WiFi signal,” Skripic added.
