Issues with Extending Wireless Network
Posted on 2014-01-15
I am trying to extend a wireless network... they have something in place, but it drops off dramatically in the casita even though they have FULL signal... they get only 1mb download speeds... but in the home they have 15mb+... So the solution I have used in the past with other clients has been:
A e1500 Linksys router
NETGEAR Powerline 200Mbps to N300 Wi-Fi Access Point (XAVNB2001)
~ONLY 1 time did the above scenario NOT work... oops NOW 2.. hehe
What I tried to use today was:
NETGEAR XWNB5201 Powerline 500Mbps to N300 Wi-Fi Access Point
I could not get it to work at all.
One device I have used, when the setup did not work above is:
Amped Wireless High Power Wireless-N 600mW Smart Repeater and Range Extender (SR10000), which is probably what I will try next... but just want to see what my other options are out there.
My question is, what do you guys use for Routers & Extenders to extend ur networks??
& Networks that are stubborn & have a lot of walls (with who no what in them, that block the signal), what devices do you use??
Thank you for any help!
