English is not my native language but I hope you will understand me anyway. I have range and speed problems with my current wireless setup and I need advice on how to improve them. I have broadband via fiber (100 Mbit/s). The network socket (ethernet port in the wall) is located in my closet (red dot - see image below) and I have connected an AirPort Express (802.11n) straight to the socket in the wall via a short ethernet cable. In my living room, about 8 meters (26 feet) away from my AirPort Express, I have a Mac Mini (802.11n) (blue dot - see image below) inside a IKEA PS cabinet (made of steel). The problem. I only get 9-10 MBit/s. I know steel will make it harder for the Wi-Fi signal to reach the computer, resulting in lower speed, but I really like the style and material of the cabinet so I don't want to exchange it for something else. I don't want to put the computer on top of it. I want it to be inside. Neat and tidy. I hate cables. How can I improve both the range and speed of my wireless network without buying a new cabinet or using long ethernet cable? I want to use wireless only. Is it even possible to use wireless N and get close to full speed (100 Mbit/s)? I like Apples products but I'm open to other brands.
