I have my desktop hooked up through Ethernet and the router is hooked up as far from the phone line as we can manage. We've fiddled with the channels and tried using a new directional antenna but our iMac doesn't get a decent signal from the bedroom. Sometimes it manages to last out but then it drops and then it just gets annoying. Wireless internet is supposed to make things easier not a complete nightmare! So we're either thinking of using a wireless repeater like this or a powerline adapter . One repeats a wireless signal from the original router and the other would let us use an ethernet cable in each room. Any suggestions on which would work better? I'd really like to be able to use wireless but I've never used either so I don't know which would work better. Thanks anyone who can help with this I'm going to pull my hair out.
