    My wife takes quarterly trips to a remote part of Texas. Zero cell signal and very weak Wifi signal. It is very hard to get a decent BBM voice chat with her. Would a Wifi extender help? Not familiar with them and how they work.

    If she's sitting next to the router and still has a rubbish signal then no but if the bad signal only occurs at a distance then yes it should help

    She is away from a central building that has the router, in a cabin. The extender would be placed in her room not at the "midway point" that the manufacturer recommends. I don't understand how they work? Are the antennas high powered and can reach out farther for a signal or something?

    You need to have it at the furthest distance away from the router where she still gets full signal I would guess. If you put it in her room which has almost no signal there wouldn't be any to extend right?

    They work as a repeater does on a cell tower to help forward the signal. It must be able to reach the signal at a reasonable strength to be forwarded to a further distance.
    That product won't give you the desired solution you are looking for.
