New WD Wi-Fi Range Extender boosts home wireless coverage
WD has unveiled its My Net Wi-Fi Range Extender to expand wireless home networks into out-of-reach areas of the home. It's available now at select U.S. retailers and online at wdstore.com at a manufacturer's suggested retail price of US$89.99.
The selectable dual-band My Net Wi-Fi Range Extender provides faster, stronger and more reliable wireless network coverage to computers, smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles, media players, smart TVs and other Wi-Fi connected devices that suffer from a weak Wi-Fi signal within the home, explains Scott Vouri, general manager for WD's connected life solutions group. It provides faster speeds at greater distances, enabling HD streaming to the outermost areas of the home, he adds.
My Net Wi-Fi Range Extender's power comes from its 3x3 multiple input, multiple output (MIMO) antenna array design. The range extender also features a Gigabit Ethernet port, providing a high-speed Internet connection for distant, wired-only entertainment devices.
