    Hello!

    I need your recommendations for wireless equipment for my home.

    Here's the scenario
    -My fibre connection comes into room A and connects to an ethernet switch.
    -I need a wireless router to create a LAN inside my home and create the wireless network in part of my house
    -I need a wireless repeater to extend the network to the rest of my house
    -Preferably "N" equipment
    -Possibility to connect external storage (optional)

    What can you guys recommend me to purchase?

    Thank you in advance!

    Well, two of the new AirPort Extremes will do what you want when connected via WDS, but that's probably not the cheapest option. Most brands of router should have either the option of a WDS-type setup or a different component that is solely designed to extend the network. Whatever you do, make sure you buy your equipment form the same brand to ensure compatibility. Then all you have to do is check if they allow for external network storage and network extension. In short, the Extremes are probably the easiest route to follow, and you'll know they'll work. :)
