I've yet to encounter a network without problems. But there are ways to solve this system. It's quite simple really and your better network folk know how. Let's keep it simple and place a wifi access point on each floor. If we can't wire these have your installer use Powerline bridges to get the internet to each access point.
The one true dead end is to search from a router that will do the job.
Hey guys, I was hoping for some help when it came to my home's wireless internet and such. My home is around 10,000sq feet, with a full walk out basement. So in all, 3 levels. I have SBC DSL in my house, running at their 3mbps package. The internet has always been shaky, getting many random disconnects/drops. And internet in the basement? forget about it, any signal down there is nothing less than a miracle. My router is on the ground/middle floor and very centrally located. My goal is to be able to get a strong and stable signal throughout the entire house, all 3 levels, no matter where you may be in the house.
In the basement, I have this makeshift movie room. It was meant to be a garage of sorts, but we never ended up using it for that purpose, and instead converted it to a "movie room". There is NO signal in that room, internet or cell phone. Because it was never intended to be a movie room, and a garage instead, the room is surrounded in brick. 1 foot on the sides, 10 inches on top--in terms of thickness. The doorway to the room is about 5 feet wide and is pretty much the only part of the room, not surrounded in brick. What I want is to be able to play my x-box or ps3 or wii online there, no problem. I want to be able to surf the net in there no problem, I want to be able to stream netflix in there no problem. Not only there, but through out the entire basement. My brother's room is on the other side of the basement, a lot closer to the router, not surrounded in brick, and he cant get any internet down there.
What do I have to do to get my house covered in a stable and strong signal?
