In my house I have ATT U-verse with a 2Wire 3800HGV-B
Ideally I'd like to use a different wireless router in place of my 2Wire but after a lot of research and failed attempts I'm not going to ask at this time.
I have CAT5e run to every room in the house. These lead back to a gigabit switch which is plugged into the 2Wire.
There are a few dead spots in one end of the house. I purchased a Linksys RE1000 Wireless-N Range Extender but it grabs your wireless signal, the poor signal that it is, and does a poor job overall.
I returned the RE1000 because I'm looking for an AP that I can plug into one of the CAT5e jacks in a bedroom where the signal is low. In a perfect world I'd like to maintain the same SSID/encryption as the 2Wire. Can that be done or do I need a secondary SSID? What device has the capability I'm looking for?
