Almond extended joy

We moved into a huge house in the fall, and one unforeseen downside to a big house is that our wifi signal doesn't make it from one side to another, upstairs to where we have our home offices. Yesterday I read David Pogue's review of the Almond router and wifi extender and thought that this might be a solution to our problem. Two minutes after opening up the box the Almond was configued and broadcasting our extended signal. So far, so good. Hopefully this will fix our problem...Stay tuned!

We also have an increasing number of wireless devices in the house pulling from the signal: three laptops (and only one is mine!), a Mac Mini media center, an Apple TV, three iPhones (one is my old one that is basically functioning as an iPod touch and bedside alarm clock), an iPad, and a Samsung Galaxy Note. I wonder if we need more bandwidth too? First world problem!
