upstairs room is getting no wireless connectivity. main level is fine
Posted on 2007-11-15
i have identical dell dimension desktops both with internal linksys wireless B adapters.
they both get great wireless connectivity to a new linksys N router when located on the main floor.
Once i move either of them upstairs to my sons bedroom, the wireless signal connection get detected but gets zero strength and no internet.
What i have done:
connected an ethernet extender that flows thru the electrical wiring in the house.
an etherent cable connects from the router to the extender in the electrical outlet on the main level.
the other adapter is plugged in my sons room to the electrical outlet.
the ethernet cable runs from the adapter in my sons room to his PC.
the etherent network on the desktop reports 100 MB connectivity, but in reality it is very slow and erratic. have to hit refresh a few times to get web pages. i believe the electrical current is interfering with the ethernet traffic.
What are my best options here for getting some internet connectivity in my sons room?
