i'm looking to improve my wifi coverage in my house. my modem and router are situated at one end of my house (bottom floor) and unfortunately, i can't put it in any other place except that one room. coverage is good until i go to the other end of my house (top floor). this is where it struggles to connect to my network and even if i do connect, its pretty darn slow i currently use an older linksys router (e2000) as my wireless access point. i've had it for a while now and i've been thinking of upgrading. i've come to the conclusion of a few options 1) buy a new router and hope that the range improves and i can connect without any worries about speed - the cons are that this may get expensive (top rated routers are almost 200, if not more) - still may not improve range 2) buy one of those range extenders and have it plugged in the dead zones - cons are that i heard these suck and dont improve speed at all 3) wireless repeating...what is this and how can i have incorporated with my current setup?
