If you get a WAP and place it even 20 feet on the other side of a wall, it usually helps. Extenders can be hit or miss.
Hi, let me explain my situation first. I am managing a motel and we currently have a 256K DSL connection with a Linksys Wireless-N router. Some of our units can't recieve a strong signal while others can. I'm assuming it is because some users are using a b/g card and not an N. My question is, in the first unit where the signal cuts off, if I were to put a wireless extender in that unit, would it work then, or does it have to have a signal to begin with? The signal is on right outside the door but dies when I go inside.
Also, being that we only have a 256K DSL connection, is the wireless limited to that bandwidth also? Even if the router says speeds up to 54Mbps?
The property is fairly large and I would like to provide Wi-Fi for all the units without having to install an internet connection in other units.
