Cheap multiple antenna wireless

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Quick Question, Jun 8, 2004.

  1. I would like to be able to use a wireless laptop throughout my house.

    Is there a cheap way to have multiple antennas, one in the attic, one
    in the basement and one on each main floor each with the same
    connection so that I can move around the house with my laptop
    seamlessly on one connection?

    I'm currently using a 4 port wireless broadband router. Is it
    possible to daisy chain a couple more routers using ethernet cable?
    Is it possible to connect a wireless router to remote antennas that
    can be wired to the main router?

    why? Guest

    Isn't that what a wireless acces point is for. Although each (floor)
    would need configured I don't recall that a simple signal repeater

    You could try
    Wireless Network Access Point
    Part # F5D7130
    Operates in 3 modes, see the product data.
    Range extender / Add wireless to existing wired / bridge 2 networks.

    If you want to have 2 different networks and introduce some minor
    complications, yes.

    Although it's simpler and less expensive to run a cable from the router
    you have, then put a switch/access point on the end of a cable.
    Wireless Access point. Why the second router business again?

    This does work, tried this already.
    Cable modem -> hardwired router -> wireless router -> wireless PC.
    Cable modem -> hardwired router -> access point -> wireless PC.

    Next test is
    Cable modem -> hardwired router -> wireless router -> access point ->
    wireless PC.
