Range extenders..a good puzzle here.

  GANDALF <|:-)> 18:49 06 May 2008

Just ahd a call from a friend who has just bought a Netgear DG834PN ADSL2+ RangeMax MIMO-G Wireless Modem Router as he has a large house. The problem is that the lower floor area can receive a good signal at one end (underneath the room where the router is) but at the other end there is no signal. The floors seem to have been designed by Hitler's Bunker architect as they are 18" of solid concrete and the walls tend to be solid concrete.

So the question is can anyone recommend a powerful signal booster that he can put downstairs to amplify the signal?

I have though of a plug in network through the leccy but for all sorts of peculiar reasons he would prefer an extender.

I use two belkin range extenders in my house and they work well - go to the Belkin home page for details but be carefull they do not support wds so check the requirements of your router or use a belkin one instead ( i use the N1 router with the range extenders with no problems - my router is down stairs and i now have coverage upstairs, in the garden etc)
