Netgear WN1000RP Wi-Fi Booster Keeps Your Mobile Devices Connected Dave Peterson July 23, 2012 News 2 Comments 175 Shares Google+ 137 Twitter 29 Facebook 5 LinkedIn 3 Reddit 0 Pin It Share 1 Buffer 0 175 Shares × Sometimes your Wi-Fi range is just a bit to small. That room on the end of the house that sometimes gets a clear signal, and sometimes doesn’t, can bring an abrupt end to a movie on Netflix. If you’re happy with your current router, but just wish it had greater range, Netgear has a simple solution. The WN1000RP Wi-Fi Booster for Mobile, is specifically aimed toward keeping our mobile devices like phones and tablets connected when we’re in parts of the house that may be dead zones now. The device plugs directly into a wall outlet, and works with 2.4 GHz b/g/n networks. Connection is essentially plug and play for those using WPS. Netgear has not said what the range of the device will be. The WN1000RP goes on sale this summer. 2 Responses Koko Zamoyski August 2, 2012 My wifi/router is owned by my ISP provider and does not have a “push” or “N” button. Can I still use this wifi booster? Dave Peterson August 2, 2012 It looks like setup may be a bit more involved (not plug-and-play) for routers that don’t use WPS, but if you have a router that operates at 2.4 GHz on b, g or n standards, it should work.
