Well you can call me stupid but what i did was buy 3 of them, they had them at best buy for a little while, idk if they still have them but they were on sale for like $15 each. I aimed middle one across the house, one aimed towards basement and the last one aimed upstairs. No matter where i go in the house i always have full bars of wifi. In the basement the connection used to drop all the time, with this thing i have full signal. upstairs i only had 2 bars, now i have 5/5 bars!!! I cannot stress how good this thing is.
