I am looking for a home solution to expand my wireless network. It does not matter if linksys or dlink or netgear. I want to have multiple wireless router/AP to connect one another wirelessly to extend the wireless signal in the house. I rather not use booster antennae. Please let me know what brand and model.

thanks

Any brand/model that allows for bridging or repeating with work for you. Just look through the models features to ensure they support them. It sound like what you want is the repeater feature.

Yes it's the repeater feature that I want but I can't find any linksys or dlink or netgear that give me the option. Is dual band the same? I see linksys say dual band...


thanks

Dual band is for having 2.4ghz or 5ghz.

How is this?

I would advise the you look at the models you are interested in and find their manuals. Some site may not list the repeater function in their features. The WAP I personally use is a Cisco WAP4410N, it has this feature and plenty of others. Has nice signal range too.
