It's been almost a year since moving into a new house, and I've struggled to get my wireless network working working consistently well. The problem I have is that my Virgin Cable entres the house on the North side, while my office is upstairs on the opposite side of the house. It's not a big house atall, but there are two solid 120mm walls seperating both spaces. This seems t be causing big big signal problems. I've tried a number of things to sort it out. First, I upgraded from my old Netgear wireless-G router to a Netgear WRN2000 wireless-N router. That improved things, but my signal still drops on a routine basis, and my transfer speeds are pitiful. I'm using a WN111v2 wireless-N usb dongle on my pc, but have ended up revering to connecting through an old Netgear Wgps606 wireless-G print server, as it doesn't seem to drop it's connection as often. I've tried all kinds of different settings on the router, including changing the speed from 64Mbps to 145 and 300Mbps, changing between different security options and changing channels. The neoghbours wireless networks are on channels 6 and 11, so I've set mine to use channel 1. My WNR2000 router supports wireless repeating, so I bought another off ebay to place at the other end of the house. Of course, this still isn't working, as that now keeps dropping it's connection with the main router. I have just bought a Cat5 cable to connect the two routers to provide a stable connection between the two. This would then mean that there is only the thickness of the floor seperating my pc/laptop with one router or the other. My question is how do I set this up. Do I still use the wireless repeating function, or do I set both routers as standalone using the same SSID? Do you think this will finally sort out my problems, as at the moment my network usually runs slower than my internet connection (20meg). Streaming video (even SD quality) is a no, no. Note: both routers are using latest firmware. Sorry for the mini essay, wanted to make sure I provided as much information as possible.
