I have a weak wireless signal in my basement.

The Best Buy people suggested a device that will increase my wireless signal using my home electrical wiring. One device plus into the router and and electrical outlet. The second device plugs into an electrical outlet in the basement. The wireless comes from the basement device.

Has anyone used something like this ?

I tried using a similar device a couple months ago that was suppose to provide an ethernet connection using the electrical wiring, but it did not work well.

thanks

This does nwork well but be warned there is interferance in the signal and yopu may not get the full bandwidth of wireless.
I do believe you can get wireless repeaters aswell that if it can see a signal it will braodcast the same signal from another area.
