Whether someone is at home, work, school, hotel, or sporting events, chances are they would love to be connected to Wi-Fi. Cellular networks are much better than they were years ago, but there’s still nothing like a quality Wi-Fi connection. Like every radio, Wi-Fi access points only have so much output power, and even at ideal power levels for an access point, it may not extend to the far reaches of an area. A common way to reach hard to reach areas is with an extender. D-Link Wi-Fi Audio Extender will help extend a 2.4GHz b/g/n Wi-Fi network and also has a little bonus, audio streaming!

A disorganized network can make any upgrades a challenge to complete in a timely, organized manner. However, organizing your network cables can be much simpler than you think. Imagine your network printer goes out and you have to replace it, but when you go to the cables to remove it from the network and replace it with a new one, you unplug the wrong one.
