I have a 2Wire 2701-HG gateway on my AT&T DSL downstairs. Recently
it has slowed down considerably, and cannot reach one room in the house.
I started investigating "extenders" or repeater stations to bounce the
signal into that one room, but I cannot find the best product to use
with the 2Wire gateway.
I have already determined that my hardware of choice, the Apple Airport
extreme and express base stations, will not work with the non-WDS 2Wire,
so that's out. I've also looked at the Linksys WRE54g, but I'm not sure
if that would be the best fit for my 2Wire WEP-protected system. I'm
trying to find the best hardware for the job, and would appreciate any
The computers that are operating on the network are all Macs running
Snow Leopard; the only non-apple product is the 2Wire gateway that we
unfortunately can't get rid of or change thanks to AT&T.
So what would ya'll suggest we use to bounce the signal into that last room, or is it possible to do so?
