My room is too far from our wireless router to receive a signal. I have a computer in my room that is wired to the router(50' cable). I could just get a more powerful router, but the signal strength would still be weak because I am so far from the router. I am fairly certain there is something I can hook to MY computer so I can get Wi-Fi in my room, which would give me a strong signal. I need to know the name of the part, and any setup info/advice would be great. Thx for your help.

Hi Kyndig :welcome:

I have setup some Wireless range extenders and they cut the bandwidth in half.

My suggestion take a look to the Powerline solutions like this for example you can extend the network using the power line and if you want wireless on the room that is far there are kits with wireless in one end.

As long as the wiring in your house is good, I'm a HUGE fan of Powerline Networking solutions. NetGear makes a great solution. I've installed the one below in 3 story 6000 square foot homes, and they work great from one end to the other:


If you follow directions you can have it set up in minutes.

I hope this helps!
