THANKS!!


Anyone have any experience with the quality of the connection on this? I've tried 2 other solutions and still have problems getting decent and consistent signals in different areas of the house. I swear there is some extraterrestrial interference source somewhere in my home. Wink

what type of house do you have?

you may have walls that kill signal, in which case you have limited options.

It's a split level ranch with an extension. The router/modem (Verizon FIOS) is in the basement and can't be moved upstairs. I tried 2 different TrendNets. One worked fine for a few months and then it would/would not connect depending on its mood. The other one had terrible speeds. My kids are mainly on the main level or the upper level and my wife/I are in the extension. The extension also has major issues getting a cell signal. I wanted to put an AP on both the main level (which is also where the extension connects) and the upper level (or at least on the upper level) which is where the kids rooms are.

Where you using 2.4ghz or 5ghz? A lot can be gained by tweaking the channel that each SSID runs on. The router that worked sporadically may have been set to auto channel and randomly switching.

Also, people rave about Ubiquiti AP's. There are many different styles for different uses. There is a 2.4ghz one that is meant for long range and has Good wall penetration.

Look into the netgear x4s, I'd say it's one of the top 5 for wireless range and speed.

Agree. Can also try Archer C9 or C1900 if your budget is limited. Don't go with extender or mesh system unless you really have to.

Houses can be a challenge to get signal through. Consider running a wire to a second ap, or doing networking over power lines in the house to get a second ap working. Kitchen appliances, bath tubs, hvac ducting, metal siding, lath and plaster walls all block signal I'm unsure of the specific cause, but you might look into gain antennas they can improve your signal output and just as importantly the ap's ability to hear.

Agree that X4s is one of best.
But Nighthawk is pricey almost 2x -3x of TP-Link router for the same spec.
TP-Link used to be low end manufacturer but they are now one of top router company in the world.
Though not good as Netgear, their products are good enough for its price.
