D-Links DAP-1320 Wireless Range Extender MSRP $49.99

     To boost your signal in a weak area you place the DAP-1320 near the area where your Wi-Fi signal is weak. It simply receives your protected signal from your Wi-Fi wireless router, boosts it, and then retransmits it further into the area where your signal was previously too weak to be effective.
     Since it is wireless, it only needs you to plug it directly into any standard electrical outlet. The last step is to give it access to your protected network so it can start to boost and retransmit your Wi-Fi signal.

The Sleek 4G Cellphone Booster

See photo and watch the video.  It has no internal battery so it needs to be plugged into the cigarette lighter of your vehicle. To use it you will also need to place a magnetic base antenna on to the roof of your car. 
     The way it works is the rooftop antenna collects the weak cellular signal and adds enough gain to get it to the Sleek 4G cradle booster.  The cradle passes on this stronger cellular signal to your phone.
