Pros • Provides both Transmit and Receive signal boost

• 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?
