I have been tasked with finding a solution to extending a wireless network without cat 5e cables. So my first solution was lets buy a bunch of air port express's and make them repeaters across the distance we need. My answer was:"They are too expensive, what else can we use?" So I did some research and found a great D-Link product the DIR-505. No matter what mode I put these things on they run for awhile and then they drop the signal ( every time ). I've tried putting them closer together, and further apart. Nothing prevents this issue. They do not stay connected to the wireless router continuously, they do not do what is needed. So back they go. Although I was told they can extend a wireless network reliably, news is they don't. As a basic repeater, or hot spot they work great. I want to run drops off a router, and switch to the areas needed and and install real range extenders off the drops. If I can't do this does anybody have any suggestions to go wireless? I need proven results.
