Am bit confused about what I need. I have moved into a new flat and it is an odd shape so I cant get wifi in the front rooms (well a very weak signal). It is not a big flat and it is all on one level it is just an odd shape, Is sort of 'L' shaped. I can get a good signal all along the long edge of the 'L' but not on the short bit and that is where the front rooms are (2 bedrooms and a studio).
What is the best way to get a better signal? I was thinking of putting a wifi router or repeater in front room (the studio) that can get the wifi from back of flat and then 'repeat' this signal. One of the computers in studio does not have an antenna so would be helpful if the 'router/repeater' could also connect via a LAN cable to the computer and then it can connect to network that way.
The network I would like to set up would be able to handle media streaming, render farming and internet all throughout the flat.
The internet is provided by BT (not sure if peeps in states or UK will be reading this but is a UK provider).
I do not want to spend any more the £50 on a router/repeater, what would do the job? I was looking at this one: ZyXEL WAP3205 Wireless Dual LAN Access Point. Will this receive and broadcast or do I need to wire it up to access point? This is what I find confusing. I ZyXEL WAP3205 Wireless Dual LAN Access Point what to have to connect it to access point as that would mean I would need to run wires and I hate running wires around living space!
Not sure if I'm making sense, please ask me questions if I'm not being clear and i will try to clarify my meaning.
