I'd avoid the range extenders. They can be very finicky to get up and running and aren't always necessary. A single wireless router should easily cover a typical 2 story home of 2000 square feet or more. If it's not, you're either running into interference or your router is poorly placed.

Most of the time when I see this complaint, I find that the router is installed in a basement or inside of a cabinet. Placement is absolutely crucial. The router should be central to the home (as much as possible) and typically, the higher up it's sitting, the better.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
