My grandmother, in another state, has the same problem that everyone else has, which is that her standard home broadband wireless router just isn't powerful enough to feed the entire house.
So she asked me if she needs a new more powerful router.
Googling, I find *this* AP device, which purports to solve the problem:
Before I ask her to buy it, does anyone have experience here with that problem (of extending range inside a house)?
The option to move the router from the basement doesn't exist, due to the hard wiring, so, it has to go up two floors.
The out-of-the-box suggestion is because she's not going to do much configuration. I can do some of the configuration for her, but, it mostly has to be *designed* to extend the range of a WiFi router.
Currently she has a Linksys WRT54G so, maybe, an N router will extend her range. But that's why I ask what her options are.
Any other suggestions for improving range that a noob can perform out of the box (i.e., she's not gonna make a can'tenna).
