Tech deal: Half price Netgear Wi-Fi extender

As the well-known Christmas song goes: "Snow is falling, all around you. Children playing, having fun. It's the season, for rubbish Christmas telly. But your Wi-Fi, doesn't work."

It's a sad truth that not all Wi-Fi hubs can cope with the deluge of Christmas cooking tutorials, dancing show finales and festive drama specials that pour onto our screens in December. If streaming the latest TV gives your computer a mechanical cardiac arrest, it may be time to consider buying a Wi-Fi range extender.

PC World has a great deal on the Netgear WN2000RPT-100UKS Universal Wi-Fi range extender. Normally retailing for £45, it's now being sold for a low £19.99 with free delivery included. The device works to extend the range of any wireless router or gateway, boosting your Wi-Fi signal and increasing your coverage.

The extender includes four Ethernet ports, but also serves as a wireless adapter meaning that it's compatible to gaming consoles, internet ready TVs, and Blu-Ray players as well as PCs, laptops and tablets.
