All advice I read and give tell us that is not where it belongs unless you want speed and coverage issues. Use some powerline bridge to get the router into the center of the home and it should be fine.
I have a d-link dir-655 extreme router. I am on comcast 20mps service I only get 65mb on wireless.
So I need help/tips on possibly improving that speed.
Also the router is located in the basement on the left side of the house in the back. Upstairs to the far right front side I have a media player which gets a decent amount of wifi. I am wondering how can I improve the wifi speed and coverage in my house. I dont know if I should use a repeater, extender? I was suggested a repeater and locate it half way upstairs or downstairs(below the upstairs media player) or should I use another router for an extender/hotspot (I think that is what I was told).
Please any help and information will help a lot!!
