Introduction

Linksys Wireless Signal Booster

Linksys Wireless Signal Booster
Summary Discontinued Jan 2004
Signal amplifier for 2.4GHz wireless products. Handles two antennas.
FCC certified and compatible with the Linksys Wireless Access Point (WAP11) and Wireless Access Point Router (BEFW11S4) only.
Update 8 June 2004 - Discontinued January 2004
30 June 2003 - Once again available for sale.
17 June 2003 - Temporarily removed from market by Linksys due to FCC request.

Pros • Provides both Transmit and Receive signal boost
• Can be used with any 2.4GHz wireless product (with proper cabling)
• No software required
• Affordable
Cons • May not significantly improve range

The range of 802.11b wireless networks seems like the weather... everyone talks about it, but no one can do much about it. Well, Linksys may not be taking on the challenge of getting the skies to cooperate with your weekend plans, but they have set out to improve your wireless network's performance!

Their WSB24 Wireless Signal Booster adds a new trick to the wireless network builder's toolkit. But can it really help you drive out the demon dead spots and let you take your wireless notebook to your favorite chair and sit in a comfortable position?
