We don't follow the instructions to place the wifi router in a central location. I've found some to place wifi routers in the basement (yikes, worst possible location.)
You don't need a Wireless-N Access Point but that will do the trick. Just follow the setup instructions and you'll get more coverage. Here I use posts 18 and 19 of this forum's top posts to use common routers as WAPs. (I don't duplicate that inside replies as that would be duplication of efforts.)
In short why not move the WRT400N to a central location?
I am new to this forum and thank any responses I do get. Here is whats going on
I have a Linksys WRT400N hooked up to the cable moden on the first floor of a 3 floor home. I have recently moved into the top floor and I am only able to run wirelessly. I am able to get a connection but it is only a low connection, so it goes in and out.
I was thinking of picking up a Linksys WAP610N to put on the second floor to possibly boost my connection a bit. My question is am I right in thinking this will get me a stronger connection? Do you have other suggestions to help?
At this time I have my pc and xbox360 connected wirelessly if you need that info. If you need any other indo please let me know.
