Need to increase wireless network coverage
Posted on 2006-05-21
I have very poor wireless network coverage in my house because the builder installed aluminium backed boards creating Faraday cages. What is the best way to optimise wireless network coverage in my house?
The equipment I have is D-Link DSL-G604T ADSL modem/wireless router. This works in half the house but doesn't reach beyond that. N.B. The eqipment is in my study (which is at one end of the house but necessary, however, I have 2 ethernet RJ 45 sockets connected to it located in the middle of the house which I can plug new equipment into).
Can I buy an extender/wireless access point which is compatible to do this? Should I buy different equipment and scrap what I already have?
Please recommend the appropriate hardware (manufacturer and model nos.)
