    What do the negative number in between the router name and the signal strength signify?

    Wifi signal is commonly measured in dBm. It is measuring the stregnth in decebels. Its not really negative, (because that would be impossible to have negative wifi signal), just the lower the number, the better the signal. I think they are negative because it measures signal loss. (I think)

    As the description says, it removes the IOS limit imposed which prevents you from seeing weak networks. It does NOT boost the power of the wifi hardware in the device. Hope that clarifies.
