Rave Reviews for BearExtender PC


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.."

Shane McGlaun | I4UNews.com

“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 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."

Without BearExtender PC: 7 networks

 

Without BearExtender PC, only 7 networks detected

 

The built-in 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi card on our Microsoft Windows XP laptop can only detect 7 networks. One network is at the top of the list, the last 6 are shown above. Notice how the networks “Sasha”, “Henry” and “aaron” are low.

With BearExtender PC: 14 networks

 

With BearExtender plugged in, double the number of networks: 14!
14 networks are now detected thanks to BearExtender PC Wifi signal booster, twice as many networks as the built-in WiFi card!
The networks “Sasha”, “Henry” and “aaron” are all boosted.

High Speed 802.11n WiFi Signal Booster

 
BearExtender PC is also a great way to add 802.11n wireless networking capability to an older Windows computer.
802.11n offers higher transmission speeds and greater range over 802.11g and 802.11b networks
Note: BearExtender PC is compatible with 802.11g and 802.11b networks, but to take full advantage of the BearExtender PC’s 802.11n capability, you must use the device with an 802.11n wireless standard router or access point.

Easy Setup

 
1. Install the software from the CD-ROM
2. Plug in the USB cable and turn off your built-in Wi-Fi
3. Select your Wi-Fi networks from the list

Sharing BearExtender with HotSpot Mode

 

With HotSpot Mode and a compatible computer setup (see requirements below), you can share BearExtender PC's stronger signal with other nearby Wi-Fi devices, including other computers and even tablets and smartphones. 

This turns your computer with BearExtender PC into a HotSpot.

Windows requirements and Setting up HotSpot Mode

  1. HotSpot mode requires Windows 7 or Windows 8. Your internal Wi-Fi card must also be functioning.
  2. Download Connectify Lite software from Connectify.me

Example HotSpot


HotSpot mode creates a new shared connection that allows other Wi-Fi devices to take advantage of BearExtender's stronger signal. 
In this example below, BearExtender is picking up a Wi-Fi signal from a public Wi-Fi tower that the tablet and cell phone cannot detect. In HotSpot mode, the BearExtender shares this connection as a new Wi-Fi signal that the table and cell phone can detect and use.
