When it comes to getting Wi-Fi strewn across huge areas, your options have historically been a little limited. Most routers needed specific range extenders in order to work together, and the universal solutions were fairly huge. But now, D-Link has introduced the Wireless Range Extender (DAP-1320), which functions with any router you have in order to extend the range of your wireless access point. It's barely larger than an AC outlet plug, and is ideal for pushing wireless signals to those hard-to-reach areas – eliminating Wi-Fi dead zones and broadening the range of a wireless network for seamless everyday Internet activities. For those in large homes or venues, this could make the difference between pulling your hair out and a useful streaming experience.

It's 802.11n and 802.11g compliant, supports WPA/WPA2 security and offers Wi-Fi Protected Setup as well. It's on sale now for $49.99, and yes, it'd make a great gift.

Now that's cool! This would be great for setting up an ad hock wifi network at outdoor venues, just plug these babies in at outlets around the area and walla wifi for everyone!

Wonder how many you can use at the same time?

I would need an AC unit now. Honestly, router is in basement and I still get great service two floors up.
