  1. Extending Wireless Range

    Hello,

    I had Verizon FIOS install at my house a few weeks ago. It came with a
    wireless router. Our home is an old farm house with solid stone walls (not
    the best for wireless, I know). About 2/3rds of the house gets a wireless
    signal. I want to use a Linksys Access Point to extend the range. Does
    anyone know how to configure the router & access point to work togther?

    Thanks,
    Marty

    You might like to consider power line ethernet as an
    alternative.

    MVP Jack has a good discussion on his website:

    Note that if you are willing to do a little learning, you might want to
    investigate getting a Linksys WRT54GL or a Buffalo WHR G54S (or a used
    Linksys WRT54G v.4 or earlier from eBay or the like) and installing 3rd
    party firmware that will unlock a lot of the capability of the hardware
    that is unavailable through the stock firmware. For more info, see, e.g.:
