Eliminate WiFi Dead Spots: NETGEAR Universal WiFi Range Extender Boosts Reach of Home Networks and Is Ready in Minutes

Enjoy increased wireless coverage for video streaming, online multi-player gaming and more with the NETGEAR Universal WiFi Range Extender (WN3000RP) helping to connect devices including tablets, smartphones and Internet TVs

SAN JOSE, Calif., June 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — NETGEAR®, Inc. (Nasdaq: NTGR), a global networking company that delivers innovative products to consumers, businesses and service providers, announces the easy and affordable solution for eliminating wireless dead spots at home: the new NETGEAR Universal WiFi Range Extender (WN3000RP), now available from major retailers worldwide.

A rapidly expanding constellation of Internet-enabled mobile and entertainment devices including tablets, smartphones, Blu-ray players, game consoles, laptops and televisions are connecting to WiFi networks from around the house and even outside on decks and patios. A big driver for this trend is the increasing availability of movies, TV shows and other video through online streaming. Consumers want to watch streaming video on their laptops, tablets and Internet-capable televisions, creating greater demand for strong WiFi connections.

This makes WiFi dead spots more unwelcome than ever, but the answer up to now – running an Ethernet cable through walls and ceilings to add a second wireless access point – has been inconvenient and complicated.

The NETGEAR Universal WiFi Range Extender increases the coverage of home networks by automatically repeating the wireless signal from a WiFi router or gateway.

The extender is a single, compact, self-contained white cube that plugs into any AC outlet. No new wiring is required, and setup takes only a few minutes. When paired with routers that have a “Push ‘N’ Connect” (WiFi Protected Setup) button, the only configuration required is simply pressing the “Push ‘N’ Connect” button on the router and then on the extender.

Dynamic LED indicators on the extender help find the best location for WN3000RP in the home, usually about halfway between the router and the wireless dead spot.

The extender supports 802.11b/g/n and works with all common WiFi security standards including WEP, WPA and WPA2.

“Today consumers are connecting more and more wireless mobile devices and Internet-capable TVs to their networks, from more places in the home. These devices are often used for high-bandwidth activities, such as video streaming and multi-player games, that require rock-solid WiFi connections,” said Damir Skripic, Product Line Manager for Connected Entertainment at NETGEAR. “The NETGEAR Universal WiFi Range Extender makes it possible to enjoy a robust wireless connection in remote corners of the house or outdoors, in places that now have low or no WiFi signal.”

Pricing and Availability

The NETGEAR Universal WiFi Range Extender (WN3000RP) is now available worldwide from major retailers – in stores and online –with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $89.99 in the United States.

    Great idea. The challenge for Netgear will be to get it to work. Personally I was able to use this device for one time only. Does that qualify as a successful proof of concept? Not sure.  Anyway, another thing I was unable to do with it..was to completely flatten it by driving over it with my car. Useless piece of crap of hardware. It is not even compatible with Netgear products.
