My router is in the front of the house, and a WiFi signal has to travel through several walls and many stainless steel kitchen appliances emitting electromagnetic interference. I could barely get a dial-up speed signal in the bedrooms, and forget about the backyard. The HooToo unit solved everything! It couldn't have been simpler to set up. Just make sure your SSID is visible and that you know your WiFi network password. I now have a signal out to the farthest stretch of my backyard (about 80 feet from the original router) and the bandwidth is about 3 Mbps at the edge of its range. It gets faster at closer ranges. I also love the unobtrusive design that's not not much bigger than a wall plug. It even mounts vertically or horizontally to avoid blocking the other power outlet.
