How Netgear Extender helps the signal to boost?
Netgear Extender extends the wireless signal of the main router. It takes the signal from the router and then transmits it to the dead zone areas. Dead zone areas do not have signal at all. So, the extenders help to reach the signal into the dead zones. Dead zone areas around your home can be yard, parking area, garden etc. If the extender can work as a repeater then it is good as repeater amplifies the signal before transmitting.
