Wireless Home Networking Challenge
I recently bought my first home, and changed from a 700 sqft apartment to a 3000 sqft split level with two acres of land for my wife's horses (Yay Montana!). I have a SMC Barricade N router I got from Woot two years ago, and it's just not cutting the mustard in a house this size. I would like to upgrade my wireless system and need you Woot gurus to guide me!
So here's a desription of my situation. The only internet I can currently get (until cable is buried to my house in a few years) is Wireless Internet (supposedly 5Meg/384k, and this is actually close according to SpeetTest). The modem and router are located on the upper floor, just about the middle of the house (can't be moved due to modem wiring from antenna). I have a desktop PC (located right next to the router), MacBook Pro (located maybe 25’ away on the same floor), Xbox 360 (located on the lower floor, in the farthest corner from the router), and a netbook (located near the Xbox but in the middle of the room).
