"Small, thin and very easy to use– a perfect solution...It can boost your signal by up to four times, giving you the freedom you need to roam...We found it easy to use, easy to set up and an excellent range extension solution."

Glenn Fleishman  | Macworld.com

"In testing, I found the BearExtender a wonder...I was able to receive a strong, usable signal from a 2008 AirPort Extreme Base Station that was nearly a block away, while standing outdoors and seeing at least 20 other networks. The MacBook’s built-in adapter worked only at a quarter of that distance."

Tim Stevens | Engadget.com

“To put it simply: this thing works. At 240 feet, with a concrete wall between us and our 802.11b/g router, our laptop's integrated WiFi receiver gave up the ghost but the BearExtender PC felt like it was just getting warmed up...at $45 this is great deal if you are cursed by low signal strength and just don't feel like dancing.."

"It's not often that I've come across a product that works perfectly, does exactly what it says it will, costs a lot less than its closest competitor and provides a real and salient difference in my computing experience...In my testing I found that a device showing 57% signal strength using the Airport card became 100% using the BEn3."

"...We tested it with an Apple AirPort Extreme 802.11n router and found that we could almost double the distance between it and the notebook. Much of the time the signal strength read 100, and despite the bulk of the antenna, it clipped to the lid of our test MacBook Pro and proved little of a hinderance..."

“If you have a notebook or desktop on your WiFi network that just won't connect, get the BearExtender for PC. This is hands down the best WiFi adapter I have ever tested and has connectivity and data speeds that blow away the competition."

Rick Maybury | Telegraph.co.uk

“The BearExtenderPC is currently the one to beat with a claimed fourfold increase in range. It clips to the screen surround so its high up and doesn’t get in the way."

Rick Broida | CBSnews.com

"Wi-Fi signal strength outside the Panera Bread where I’m currently working: two bars. Wi-Fi signal strength with the BearExtender PC plugged into my laptop, same location: five bars. I think that about sums it up."

Adam Scinto | the-gadgeteer.com

"At the end of the testing, I came away impressed with the BearExtender PC as you can tell by my review. The wireless capabilities of my laptop were significantly increased, which is exactly what it was developed to do. If you’re looking to increase the speed and range of your wireless, this is the product to buy."

Paul Lilly | TechBargains.com

“We don't hand out perfect 5 out of 5 scores easily...Simply put, we're impressed with the BearExtender PC on all fronts. It's compact and portable, it grabs hold of weak Wi-Fi signals when most other network adapters would wave the white flag."

You know how you search and search for a simple computer solution and finally you think you find what you want and for a myriad of reasons, it doesn't? And it only becomes apparent after you have wailed and gnashed your teeth for at least 3 hours?
The BearExtender is not like that. You order, it arrives, you install the software, plug it in, follow the very simple instructions, and it works.
I feel like Steve Jobs (or how SJ would have felt had he not passed). I can now watch live video from the far end of my property from the comfort of my own bed instead of geting up every 2 hours, getting halfway dressed (stout boots and a coat), grabbing a flashlight and stomping off into the night to check on the status of my pregnant mare. Who is always asleep and far from gruntled at being woken.
So thank you BearExtender. I Lub You.

5.0 out of 5 stars classy device, August 11, 2012

The BearExtender Mini has a beautifully simple design that integrates well with the Mac. It works far better than I expected from reading reviews of it's predecessor, the BearExtender (sans "Mini"). The software bugs that plagued the users of the first version must have been fixed on the Mini because I found the software easy to use and intuitive. It was up and running within 5 minutes of arrival and pulling in free Wi-Fi connections easily. It easily doubled the signal strength and speed of the AirPort that came with my Mac. My AirPort is now functioning as a Wi-Fi hotspot for my iPhone and Kindle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bearextender Mac, September 11, 2012

I recently purchased the Bearextender Mac for a friend. He had purchased a new iMac and wanted to use his old iMac in another part of the house. The signal strength from his router was poor in the room of the house he wanted to put his old iMac. Bearextender solved that problem completely. The connection strength went from 30% to 95% and works like a champ. This things works! A definite recommend!
