Extend wireless network

I've got a 54g network (Belkin) which only just reaches through my house and drops out at its limis as a result. I want to extend its reach so I get a more reliable signal through the house. Th router won't allow another antennae to be attached, and I don't want to add more gismos to my laptop. So what would people recommend as a god choice for an access point to act as a "repeater"?

Thanks

Mike

In fact what you need is Belkin's Wireless Access Point F5D7130, which is the only device which will work with your router (F5D7230-4).

I got this information by e-mail from Belkin - don't think I'd have found it any other way.

Cool, thanks Mike. I've bought it and, with some hassle, got it working! Problem solved. You're a star.

No problem. Any time.

They take em away when they start talking to them selves. We used to say in times past that the Green cab's on its way

Again Thanks, MikeOt. I also went into PC World (yes, that desperate...) in London, and COMPUSA in the USA and both had sales technicians who agreed on my not being able to extend my Belkin Router range. Both suggested that if I wanted to extend my range, then I should change my router and then get repeaters from the same company making the router; one suggested D-Link, and the other suggested Linsys.

So, thanks MikeOT, will get the Belkin Wireless Access Point
