I have an aol supplied router the thomson speedtouch 576. the range is probably ok for a small house but with the router in my attic office i can't pick up a very good signal in the lounge . Can anyone recommend a router with a better range or ariel extension - must be compatible with AOL?
Hi Freddie, thanks for the tip but I've been put off this router from the reveiews on DSL warehouse - many didn't rate it. I had a look at the spec and it doesn't mention the range is good so I'm cautious to try it. click here
main problem is the strength of the signal is not strong enough to pass through all the walls to get to the lounge. lounge is 2 floors down and on opposite side of the house. signal needs to pass through 2 floors and then 5 walls. All the walls are brick construction and two of them are double thickness. Tricky eh? The AOL router supplied does have enough strength to get a very low signal in the lounge when I move the router out of the office into the landing. A router with double the range would probably do it but which one I haven't any idea?
