Inexpensive WiFi repeater

Wireless networks are great, they make connecting to the rest of the world so much easier. However, you are always limited by how strong of a signal you get. The farther you are from the router, the less chance you have to connect. Today I've found a relatively inexpensive repeater that might help with boosting your signal.

The aptly-named Mini from Meraki is a simple WiFi repeater that needs only a power outlet to work. It has a few extra features that make it stand out from other WiFi repeaters. The biggest feature is that it has a standard ethernet port so that you can jack-in with something that doesn't have built-in wireless. It also comes with great online software that allows you to manage your network and plot out your repeaters on Google Maps.

These little guys are available for only $49 each.
