Western Digital, a computer hard disk drive manufacturer, recently released a device to strengthen internet connection for all Wi-Fi enabled devices.
The My Net Wi-Fi Range Extender is designed to provide faster and stronger wireless network coverage for all Wi-Fi devices in the home or office. It caters for all who desire to extend their wireless connection across the home.
“Today’s home is filled with multiple Wi-Fi connected devices simultaneously streaming movies, music and TV shows on services such as Netflix, Hulu Plus, VUDU and others. The My Net Wi-Fi Range Extender provides faster speeds at greater distances, enabling HD streaming to the outermost areas of the home” says Scott Vouri , General Manager for WD’s connected life solutions group.
The device is able to perform this task with its 3×3 multiple input, multiple output (MIMO) antenna array design. This design allows users to extend their network coverage significantly, compared to the 2×2 design used by many other devices.
Setting up the device is pretty simple; one can use Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) to connect the range extender to their existing home network with a push of a button. Then, users can check the Wi-Fi signal strength indicator lights on the front of the range extender to find the optimal signal-boosting location in their home. Once all the indicator lights are lit, the My Net Wi-Fi Range Extender is in the best location to provide maximum performance.
