Perscitus posted a topic in Networking and InternetMy house is a split level with the modem in the basement... this results in a pretty awful signal on the top floor. This is a problem since there are multiple devices trying to use the wireless-LAN from there. I tried using an extender, but that didn't work so well, the house is just badly shaped for it to work (plug locations are crap to top it off). So my current idea is to run an ethernet cable from my modem to the office on the top level which has an Ubuntu server I setup for us to store files on. I would be connecting the ethernet cable to a wireless access point. That should enable devices and the server to get a strong wireless signal.. at least as I understand it. Does this all make sense or will I run into a problem somewhere along the way? Just wanna make sure before I go spending the cash for the wireless access point.. Which brings me to the next question, does anyone have an inexpensive model they recommend?
Ok I have a customer who needs a network installed in a building there turning into a private school. The problem is it used to be a tasty cake factory. It's walls are to thick to lay wiring inside and the florrs/ceiling are reinforces stell and concrete. So I called up Cisco and they recommended doing a w ireless acess point on the top floor to cover the floors and then a router in the basement. okay so I need my math checked. the height of the each floor is 20ft the length and with are 200 and 150 feet which means were talking a calculation of 200ft*150ft*20*4= 2,400,000 which would be 2,400,000 cubic feet. Am I correct in the math and concept?
