Wifi booster - don't waste your money!

I ordered the wifi booster for $99 because my service is so spotty and so slow. Big waste of money. I actually lose my connection more often on some sites when the booster is plugged in.

What was the original problem you were having that caused you to believe that the WiFi Booster might help? 


Are you sure the booster is properly placed, as in halfway between where you have a powerful signal and where the signal drops to nothing?  


If specific sites are dropping the connection, but not others, this wouldn't be as a cause of the WiFi Booster, as the booster is indifferent to the sites you're on, as well as your online activities in general.  All it does is extend the HT2000W's WiFi signal in the same general direction that you've placed it.
