At my day job in the finance industry, we have been using iPads for our mobile computing needs. Recently, we switched to new Windows 8 tablets, due to new software that we needed to run. With the adoption of these new tablets, though, we lost the 4G network that our iPads had – so we moved into using a local wi-fi network to run these new tablets.
The first problem we noticed was dropped connections. Then it was that in some offices no connection could be made at all. I did some research and decided to check out the High Power Wi-Fi Adapter. Given this introduction, you can probably guess that I would not be writing about it here if it did not work out…
The High Power Wi-Fi Adapter by Amped Wireless has proved to be very beneficial. It is refreshing to find a product that does exactly what it states on the box: It extends the range of a regular router to provide internet connectivity to, in this test, a 7000 square foot building through at least three cinder block walls, all without adding any software.
Anyone who has a Windows 8 tablet or laptop would definitely benefit from picking up one of these adapters.
