plug in range extender recommendations?


[link to this post]
 
Following the demise of my Billion 7800N I replaced it with a D-Link modem and Belkin router.

I'm finding though that the wireless is quite a bit weaker.

Was looking at a Netgear range extender such as a NETGEAR WN3000RP-100UKS that I can plug in to a socket in the hallway which is in the centre of the house.

Anyone any opinion on these?

Virgin (ADSL) => Namesco => Newnet => O2 => Plusnet => Zen => Newnet => Zen => Freeola => Vivaciti (using O2 Wholesale DSL) => Xilo (C&W Wholesale) => Xilo (O2 Wholesale) => Xilo (TT Wholesale due to O2 Wholesale closure) => Zen LLU
Router: Billion 7800N
