Ask the Answer Guy – Boosting Cell Phone / Air Card Signal.

Brent - How can we increase the signal strength of our cell phones and wireless cards while using them in our office or home?

Great question. What is the point of having a cell phone or air card if it doesn't work where you most often carry them?

Finally, get a full 5 bars at your office when you install a Wi-Ex zBoost cell zone and signal booster. They come with a bit of a price tag, but never before has there been a product that claims to accomplish this task so well and actually delivers when (and where) it really counts. Head to the Wi-Ex website and read up on the various products they carry. We recommend the zBoost YX510-PCS-CEL; it works with all types of carriers / phones simultaneously except for Nextel for the benefit of your entire office.

If you, like most, find yourself a little skeptical toward such a bold-claim, read this great review by cnet about this established solution to a long-time problem.
