My wireless base station, MN-700 does not have enough range to
adequately cover my whole house. Is there a booster product I could buy to
expand it's range?

More about : 700 range

No, there isn't. As you may already know, wireless networking can be
limited by environmental objects, including certain types of walls,
appliances (refrigerators, washer.dryers, microwaves) and definitely the
location of the base station. Have you tried moving the base station
higher, lower, away from walls and other electrical devices? Have you tried
changing the channel, up or down?

Not a booster but a MN500 running as an access point. It
has to be connected to your lan with an using an ethernet
cable.
