Do I need a Wi-FI Booster?
If you have any areas in your home that have a poor signal, then you could benefit from a Wi-Fi signal extender. If are looking to extend Wi-Fi coverage to additional structures or garages, you could benefit as well. Use the HughesNet Mobile App’s wireless signal gauge to help you identify places in your home with a poor signal.
How does it work?
The HughesNet Gen5 Wi-Fi Booster uses the existing wireless signal from your HT2000W modem to repeat the signal in areas of your home where the signal may be poor. With a quick set-up, the extender will configure the same SSID as your modem so you have no additional passwords to remember.
