You are learning first hand why. OK, what do I use? Mostly what I'll reveal next.
1. WAPs. I can use a WAP or a "router as a WAP" to give another area coverage.
2. From the other CNET Forum, this link.
3. Relocation of the router.
To this day I still find routers in bad locations like a basement. No matter how many times you tell them, they are still found in the wrong location.
Hi, any help with my issue would be greatly appreciated. Uninterrupted music... I remember it well back in the day.
I have an airplay speaker, made by libratone. Looks very nice, fails to deliver. Since it only ever achieved 40% signal quality talking to my router in the next room( base technicolor tg582n) , I decided to purchase Tplink's TL-WPA4220T KIT and boost the range of my wifi signal all of the 5m (plus wall) to the speaker.
Originally, when plugged in, it failed to work, and I contacted the manufacturer who informed that extenders didn't support airplay. However they released a firmware upgrade and gave me complete assurance that were I to upgrade the devices it would support airplay...
Unfortunately, despite my best efforts, the solution eludes me still. All of the wifi works strongly, the I-devices all connecting well to the network but... The speaker, when connected to its nearest wifi extender , (showing a 95% signal strength), isn't then visible from a device connecting to the Same Boosted wifi zone, but is visible if the ipod is connected to the base router!!
I find this hugely bizarre, and it means that I can't sit in the same room as the speaker , and still control it, which is kind of the point?
I am losing the will to live trying to sort this out, the holy grail of seamless uninterrupted music from my ipod. Next weeks lottery numbers for anyone who can give me any advice! * best efforts anyway.
All that remains to be said is enjoy the bank holiday weekend., thanks for your consideration.
