" ...  After setup I moved the transmitter to other side of home in garage (same outlet as garage door opener), roughly 45' from router. ... My internet at home WiFi router is about 180/12 and on wireless in garage I get roughly 150/8. ... Ping is slightly less than on home router but good for most tasks. ... Signal strength covers entire front yard which is about 70' from transmitter which steel garage door closed.  ...  "

" ...  I was searching for a stronger router when I read something about powerline adapters and I'm glad I did. ... I priced out better routers and the cost of running cat 5 upstairs but these powerline adapters solved my problem for a lot less money. ... And I instantly had almost the same signal speeds as I had when plugged directly into the router. ... The drop-off in my case was very, very small and the connection is quite stable.  ...  "
