Rave Reviews for the original BearExtender PC (previous version)


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..."

 

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."

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 Bearifi PC: 7 networks

 

Without BearExtender PC, only 7 networks detected

 

The built-in 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi card on our Microsoft Windows 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 Bearifi PC: 14 networks

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


Benchmark

The following test was conducted by Engadget.com. Read the full review here.
Engadget tests show BearExtender strong at 240+ feet while internal Wi-Fi has dropped out
At 240 feet, the internal WiFi card has dropped to almost 0% signal strength. At the same distance, BearExtender PC has more than 75% signal!
 

Sharing BearExtender with Connectify Hotspot

With BearExtender PC and Connectify Hotspot (3rd party software available for purchase), you can share Bearifi PC's stronger signal with other nearby Wi-Fi devices, including other computers and even tablets and smartphones. 

 

Example HotSpot


With Bearifi PC and Connectify Hotspot, you create a new shared connection that allows other Wi-Fi devices to take advantage of BearExtender's stronger signal. 

In this example below, Bearifi PC is picking up a Wi-Fi signal from a public Wi-Fi tower that the tablet and cell phone cannot detect. With Connectify Hotspot, the Bearifi PC shares this connection as a new Wi-Fi signal that the table and cell phone can detect and use.
