Home network set up
Posted on 2009-05-13
My client has got a Virgin Boadband. He has two desktop computers in the front room and this is also where the Virgin modem is. Then there are two wireless squeeze bozes in the back room and a laptop. I am lookin for the best solution to run all devices on the same network.
I have bought N range wireless router , devolo homeplugs, and a network switch.
If I run a wireless router the signal at the back is quite week. The laptop does have N range wireless card , which I installed at the same time.
I tried to put the router in the middle of the floor using homeplugs but then I could not figure out how to connect the two desktops in the front room.
I am having a bit of a problem with the set up , hence I need your advice. I was thinking of installing two wireless card on the desktops but one of them has got Windows2000.
I could not find the compatiable card + I am not sure about the signal strength.
I appreciate all your comments.
