Netgear says it can fix your spotty WiFi
Like an itch in the middle of your back, most people have a place in their house that WiFi won't reach.
Today at the Consumer Electronics Show, Netgear put forth a couple of gadgets designed to make network bridging and boosting easier for the average homeowner.
The Universal WiFi Range Extender can double a signal's strength, says ZDNet, and all consumers have to do is plug it into an outlet -- preferably somewhere halfway between the router and signal desert in your home. Available March 2011, the Universal WiFi Range Extender will retail for under $100.
Another bridge, the Universal Internet Adapter for Home Theater 3D and HD, will have four ethernet ports for peripherals. It should hit stores before the end of the month and retail for about $170.
Finally, the The Netgear Powerline AV 200 Nano Adapter Kit is the smallest AV adapter around, and ZDNet says its good for small businesses with "certifications for high security and data encryption." It will also ship in March and should retail for about $140.
