For a long time, we have been battling off and on with low signal strength on a wireless pc on the other side of the house. In an attempt to rectify or correct this problem, I ordered a Hawking Hi-Gail USB Wireless-G Dish Adapter which I just found out today from the company, AxionTech.com, that it is discontinued. It was my understanding this wireless adapter works great at enhancing or increasing the signal strength of routers which are required to transmit through walls.
From a previously closed post, I also got a suggestion to buy another wireless router and reconfigure it as an AP or Access Point. It is also my understanding from this now closed post that most modern routers already have an option to select AP within its setup or configuration. If not, there are 3rd party firmware applications which can be used to reprogram the firmware of the router just as long as the router supports it. One such firmware application mentioned was DDWRT which would give a new menu interface of the router.
At any rate, I am wondering what I can do on both, the wired and wireless side to put the issue of low signal strength to rest. Any feedback given to this question will be deeply appreciated.
I will look forward to hearing back from everyone and trying out any suggestions given.
