Anyone have any success with or recommendations for a WiFi range extender or repeater? I recently tried the WN3000RP wireless extender made by NetGear, but unfortunately it has turned out to be nothing but an absolutely worthless piece of junk. Iím a little surprised though, since I was using it with one of their newer compatible RangeMax wireless-N routers.

I currently use W- Net extender there OK but do struggle with signal, the problem is metal in walls still interferes with signal.

You need to get the antenna on the other side of that metal wall.
