Disclosure: I am a Netgear Ambassador and received a Nighthawk AC1900 Smart WiFi Router for review purposes. All opinions are my own.

Do you have dead spots in your house? You know, the areas around your house where your WiFi doesn’t have a strong signal. We have a few stops, one being the up stairs bedrooms and the other is outside on the back patio. It can be pretty frustrating for me, since I work from home, and need to more around the house with either a laptop or tablet. I try not to ground myself at my desk everyday, but find ways to spend time with the kids around the house.

Luckily, Netgear provided me a Trek N300 Travel Router and Range Extender to solve my problem. The Netgear Trek is a stand alone router that instantly shares any internet connection.

Instantly share any Internet connection and stay secure with firewall protection for public hotspots with NETGEAR Trek Travel Router and Range Extender. No longer pay multiple access fees for each device and turn a wired internet connection into a WiFi hotspot. With a powerful flip-out antenna, you’ll enjoy increased range whether you use it on the go, or at home.

After using the Trek for a few weeks at home and at hotel rooms, I find it easy to use. The compact design is lightwieght and gives a strong WiFi signal. I feel that the biggest obstiacal I wanted to over come was the lack of signal in my backyard. I place the Trek between my Netgear Nighthawk router and the back door to bridge the gap in coverage. Overall I recommend the Netgear Trek N300 as a key piece to my home network.
