I wanted to get your opinion about how to extend a wireless signal.

I currently have a wireless Linksys router with an extended antenna attached to it. In part of my house I am receiving no signal. What is the best way to extend the signal?

Can I use a bridge and add another wireless router close to the no signal portion of the house? Meaning I would have two wireless routers on the same network talking to each other.

Thanks in advance for the help.

hi,

In order to extend the range of the wireless signal you can go for an access point.May i know how far is your wireless computer from the router?Or you can get a wireless range extender to extend the signal.

Of courrse it may prove more convienant to move the router more towards the centre of the house or towards the current signal-less areas.

But you can also get access points and some (though not all) routers will work as a separate access point in sync with a separate router.

So how would that be setup? Would I have my Cable modem, connecting to a wireless router which then connects to an access point. While on the other side of the house, I would have a wireless router and an access point connected together? Then have the two access points talk to each other?

Or do I just need 1 access point to connect the two wireless routers together?
