The D-Link DAP-1320 wi-fi extender is on sale for $24.99 on the D-Link web site and at participating retailers for Black Friday. I think I'm going to have to get one at Office Depot tomorrow afternoon after I get off work.

Got it. Set it up. Works as advertised. Hopefully, this will allow the signal to bypass the interruption of signal when my father-in-law is in residence (keep my wife from complaining). grin

Worth every penny. smirk

It interfaced with the ASUS easily?

WPS buttons in the proper sequence worked flawlessly. I did have to hard reboot the ASUS afterwards, so I could log in to it again. grin

IOW RTFM? grin They have a WPS button, great. Thx.

Have not set one of those up yet. For even the regular price a nice compact solution.

My local cable TV/internet provider has a new service they've named "Echo." It's whole house wi-fi. They will, for $29.95, come out and install access points in order to eliminate wi-fi dead zones. Of course, that will also cost you an extra $10/month plus $3/month for each AP installed. Their APs are directly wired to the cable, however. If you should need additional APs installed or a service call to correct a problem, that's another $29.95 charge.

I solved my household's wi-fi weaknesses with a one time $24.99 purchase of a Dlink DAP-1320 wi-fi range extender (essentially a wi-fi AP). It was a Black Friday special which normally retails for $40 or $50 depending on where you shop. Set up was effortless and took mere minutes.

This really isn't rocket science, folks.
