I currently have a Belkin N1 MIMO wireless router and I am getting great reception all around my home. That is not the question. My question is how does a range expander help. I mean, is it necessary and will it help in some spots that aren't getting great reception? Thanks.

Truthfully, I'd be looking at hi-gain antennas and/or booster amps.

Hawking Tech has a number of products that will help you increase your wireless range. The root page is Hawking Hi-Gain™ WiFi Range Extending Products.

Some of the more interesting products are this Hawking [HSB2] Hi-Gain WiFi Signal Booster, which can be used on either end of a wireless connection to boost the signal power.

Another way to increase your signal strength is by the use of hi-gain antennas. You can choose from omni-directional or directional models, here are a couple of examples.

Hawking [HAI7SIP] Hi-Gain 7dBi Omni-Directional Antenna

Hawking [HAI15SC] Hi-Gain 15dBi Corner Antenna
