    Default Wifi extender
    My sister lives on the floor below me and we are trying to share Internet to save money. Is there an option out there to plug into my iPad 2 to get better wifi service from her. Only getting 1-2 bars at the most???

    There are numerous wifi extenders that boost a wifi signal. You could also use a powerline adapter and install another wifi router upstairs.
    Until the next time… And if I help you out, give me a "Thanks!" Thanks!

    Don't use an extender it drops wireless speeds, what you want to do is run a wire from your sisters to your area and then add a wireless access point to get full speeds. You can use numerous types of access points one that I like to use is pakedge but they are very costly. Another thing you can do is get an airport express and configure it as a wap and you will have full internet speeds.
