For those that worry about ever being in a wireless dead zone, don’t like to use the network at the local coffee shop or want to be really, really generous with their connectivity, there’s a new pro-smart repeater from Amped Wireless.
Called the High Power Wireless-N 600mW Pro Smart Repeater, it’s a wireless amplifier and antenna that, the company says, extends a local wireless network for a mile and a half. That’s right, 1.5 miles.
According to the company, only gets the full range when used with some other amped products such as the router, but even if it isn’t quite so powerful, it could, for example, provide wireless access to an entire 20-story building, even if one accounts for the signal punching through concrete. It sells for $180, competitive with other wireless network extension kits.
