Common Solutions to Resolve WiFi Range Limitation Problem

How to resolve the problem? There are following options you can choose:

1: Buy another internet service, which provides you a newer and stronger WiFi router with new package.

This options will NOT be adopted by most of people since it is really a money wasting solution, and, it does not guarantee you can get extended WiFi range;

2: Buy WiFi Extender, which maybe more and more popular solution (really? not sure actually)

Since WiFi Extenders are cheaper than before, so this option might be easier for you. You can choose it but I will not talk about this option here;

There are multiple good WiFi Extender deals on Amazon now, some models are sold by Amazon itself with more reliability. So you can choose them now, check here.
