Giving your WiFi network better reach.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   Whether it’s the basement, a corner bedroom or the backyard patio….chances are your WiFi signal doesn’t reach everywhere in your home you’d like it to.   Amped Wireless has a number of simple solutions on the market, including the compact REC 15A,  that you can just plug in and set up with a smart phone or tablet.   Brand and Marketing Manager Lacey Neddo…

“In a nutshell, it’s a pretty simple device.  It works by actually grabbing your WiFi router signal, your home router or your office router, and it repeats that signal into this new extended network.   So the setup for it is fairly simple.  You find a place, we say, somewhere between, roughly half way between where your router’s located and where you receive no signal at all.”

The REC15A, which sells for under a hundred dollars, can cover a home as big as five thousand square feet.  You can find us at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
