Expand the range of your wireless network!
Expand the range of your wireless network! The Linksys
Wireless-G Range Expander is the easy way to increase the
effective coverage of your wireless network.
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 “bounces” the signals out 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.
The Range Expander is perfect to help cover large areas in
multi-story homes, warehouse environments, public spaces,
wireless “Hot Spots”, and outdoor venues—anywhere you need
extra coverage for your wireless network.
The Wireless-G Range Expander is compatible with the Linksys
WAP54G Access Point, and both the WRT54G and WRT54GS
Wireless Routers. It works with both Wireless-G and Wireless-B
clients so you’ll get the benefits of increased coverage, even
with a mixed network.
So, expand your wireless network’s effective coverage the easy
way, with the Wireless-G Range Expander.
