Home Wireless Setup??
Posted on 2011-10-02
Im tryiing to figure out the best way to provide wireless throughout my entire condo. I just moved and my new condo is almost 4500sq feet, my cable modem is in my office with my wireless router near the front door. When trying to stream music or use other wireless devices most of them barley get a signal on other ends of the condo. Im confused as to what i should do, should i buy a wireless access point or wireless extender. Im just trying to perform what i think should be a simple task, extend the range of my existing wireless router but when talking to folks at BestBuy etc.. no one seems to have the right answer. If anyone has any recommendations on what is a great wireless router and a great accessory (extender/repeater) please let me know. Is it easy to set up once i get the "extender/repeater"? Im guessing i will have to plug a laptop into extender/repeater and give it an IP on the same subnet, heck , i dunno, HELP....
