I have BT infinity connection with modem /router on ground floor. Wireless signal can be picked up easily until second floor. Third and fourth floors have very poor signal so I have run a cable from modem to top floor - completely hidden so no issues there.
On the top floor I have a Netgear network switch FS605 running three cables into three rooms. All works fine.
What I want now is to replace the Netgear switch with one that also offers a wi-fi connection so that my iPhone / iPad can connect via wi-fi on the top floor. I still need the wired capability.
Can anyone recommend one for me please? Home Network Plugs are not an option as the top two floors are on a different circuit for some reason.
Thanks for any advice and I'd appreciate solutions to be as fool-proof as possible; adding the Netgear switch was no problem and hopefully replacing it with a wireless enabled one will be equally straightforward.
If the Cat5e cable gives you an ethernet connection on the top floor already then I can't, theoretically, see any problem connecting the second router to this and then configuring the wireless connection following the instructions on how to daisy chain. Specification for this router here.
