how can i extend my airport extreme range

We have a large stone house, I have bought an airport extreme but the signal strength on my mac air and iphone have not improved from the old Belkin router I had. Can I get a booster?

    You can extend the range of your airport extreme by purchasing another of any apples wireless networking gear. Probably the best device to do this for most needs would be the airport express. All you have to do is hook it up connect using the airport utility and in there tell it you what to extend the range of an existing net work and follow the rest, just note that on the existing airport base station you will have to enable the check box under the network id to allow the network to be extended.

  • Regardless of the brand name you may favor, mulitple routers is the only honest answer.
