Could do with some help on a technical matter!
My wireless comes into the house at a specific point through Virgin cable, but this means my router is in the worse possible place for my office, especially since I have changed the furniture meaning the router is quite low down. Mrs Y not having "all those ugly wires laying about" so physically moving it is not really an option.
Connected to outer are the following bits of kit:
Xbox 360 - hard wired
2nd Xbox 360 - hard wired via homeplug (this works brilliantly, but I had trouble adding further homeplugs - not sure why!
Wii - Wireless - connects fine
Home PC - Wireless - works fine, but sometimes link is pretty week
Work laptop - wireless - connects but regularly drops the network (Which drives me batty!)
So, reading about a Tenda Wireless AP/Router, I'm thinking this could be for me. Anyone have any experience of this? The comments I see seem to suggest that you hard wire to it - which is fine, but can't it be used as a wireless signal booster?
Do I have to have any functionality on my existing wireless router to make this happen or is all the clever stuff in the Tenda (or equivalent)?
I think I have covered all the pertinent facts, but if anyone has any questions, just ask - but I am really keen to get your help on this...
