RangeBoost vs. antenna




Well if you go to best buy or any other electronics store you see all the wireless devices that will extend your wireless connection. And a stronger wireless connection will provide faster data transfers. Well my solution is not to buy a range booster router but to get an external antenna. I bought a D-Link router that is nothing more than a router. It is the entry level model, wbr-1310. Well our house is really long so the wireless signal needs to go about 45 feet through lots and lots of walls to get to my bedroom. I thought about going and buying a more powerful router but they cost about $100. So I decided to go with a 4db antenna that plugs right into the router. It was only $20 on Newegg.com. I paid $23 for the router on sale. So you do the math but it was a lot cheaper and gave me really good results. The pictures below show the before and after on my MacBook Pro.
