Hi,
My name is***** will assist you.
You can use a NETGEAR Range Extender.
The range extender receives your existing wireless signal and extends it to hard to reach places.
I will get you a link for the extender.

30ft*
Expert:  Randy IT Tech replied 1 year ago.
yes, the average distance is 100 ft. It mainly depends on the building construction materials and other things that can cause interference. Where is the Netgear located?
