I find them to not always work with every router.
Because of that I use the old ROUTER AS A WAP solution.
Using BT Hotspot 500 with BT Router is in principle fine. In practice if you wish to extend say to a garage with its own way at the domestic distribution unit (radial or ring) does not work - BT confirm this.
They suggest try Panasonic. Will this work when the power supply of the two units are on separate ways, even separate RCDs?
Thank you for your quick response. Why considering these products? Need a solution to get wifi into garage (where there is now a new office) which works. Any working solution is welcome. Main domestic router however, remains BT (existing provider).
PS As a newcomer, I am ignorant about starting a new thread.
Sorry but the forums are wonky at the moment.
I use the usually "ROUTER AS A WAP" and connecting that over powerline networking or that powerline bridge to WiFi device. The one thing I continue to not use are extenders since my clients are a little demanding.
Example in a box solution?
The most popular one is the WRE54G but not everyone prefers that model. If you take a look at the reviews on http://www.wifirepeaterreviews.com you will get tonnes of reviews on it. Some people appear to prefer it just because its easy to use and you don't really have to be concerned about it being the "best". But then there's a bunch of people who are interested in their latest releases which are just picking up steam. Take a look either way and you'll find something on there.
Light bulbs you shouldn't buy
There are plenty of dimmable LED light bulbs, but make sure you don't buy the ones that flicker when you dial them down.
