Extend the wireless signal
We’re living in a world where the Internet plays a major role in most people’s lives. Either we need it to work, to make our school projects, or just to download our favorite podcasts, we need it.
But what can you do if, even though we’re living in such developed technological days, your Internet speed is not that speedy after all?
Ever heard about WiFiBlast Range Extender? This device is a wireless signal extender, meaning that it captures your existing WI-FI signal and makes it even stronger.
This way you can use your connection from spaces that were once too far away.
Most of us have had issues with our internet connection in the most inappropriate moments. I’m sure you can relate to this! Actually, I always have this problem when I’m at my parents’ house.
Maybe it’s because the house is pretty old and maybe the construction material doesn’t let the Internet “bless me with its magic”. This is exactly why I decided to let you know more about what I’ve learned on this device.
The WiFiBlast Range Extender was thought to speed up your connection with up to 300 Mbps, even for the rooms that we’re not, by any means, capturing any signal. Moreover, the brand claims that their product is not that difficult to set up.
The story behind the device
Some found really entertaining the story that this device comes with. Apart from the website where you can buy it, you can access another site, containing a news-style story.
So we’re introduced to Rick Bennett, who’s really anxious about not being able to do his work from home. His internet connection is so slow that he has to wait five whole minutes just to check his emails.
Therefore, he decides to take the matter into his hands and calls his internet provider. At some point, two technicians come to his place to check things out. One of them claims that his internet provider is ripping him off and this is what causes such a slow connection.
As the technician goes to his car, he comes back with a device, the WiFiBlast Range Extender. Rick is reassured that he won’t face any more issues because this WiFiBlast will reconnect the split channels from his router and blast the signal throughout the house.
As convincing as this story aimed to be, I didn’t fall for it that quickly. I decided to go further with my research and I’m going to share my findings with you.
Also, I made some comparisons with other products you can find online, on Amazon. So sit back and enjoy the read!
How does it work?
You just have to plug it into a wall, like you’d do with other similar WiFi extenders available on the market. In order to set it up, just plug it in and choose whether to set it up from your phone, tablet, or through your computer.
As far as I’m concerned, I think that the phone setup is much easier, but you be the judge of that. You just open your Wi-Fi settings and connect to “WiFI Repeater”.
Fill in the field that shows the IP “192.168.101”. to log to the next page, use the word “admin”, then tap “repeater mode”. Choose a customized name and password for the repeater.
Finally, connect to it with the password that you just created. And you’re done!
However, if you choose to set it up via your desktop computer, things might be more difficult.
