The Asus RT-N56u is also a good router in the same class as the 3700/37AV. I have it and it's been great so far.

Hey goons, I'm looking for a solution to this:



I get little or no signal in the garage when its door is closed from my router, which is a pretty decent consumer one (Asus RT-N56U). Should I look into getting a repeater with a directional antenna, or maybe what CuddleChunks was recommending on this page with

quote:

Get a decent wifi bridge, Ubiquiti and Mikrotik/Routerboard are good sources, and then point that at your router. BAM! Huge signal! Next, get a wifi router to provide service on the boat. Now you can cruise around in style.
, or something else?

I need to have signal for a bunch of devices, and most of them won't be computers.

Bought dual shock 4s to use with Steam games, works great with my Macbook pro right next to me, but it seems the bluetooth dongle I bought for my desktop has an extremely limited range; being 8-10 feet away and the connection gets laggy and even drops inputs.

Are there higher-powered bluetooth adapters I could get? I googled around and couldn't find anything definitive. In theory it seems like I should be able to get a Class 1 bluetooth dongle instead and that would have increased range, but a lot of customer reviews contradict this. I'm using Windows 7 x64 in case that matters (I saw one person say Windows 8 had better bluetooth support?).

I recently moved to Germany and want a new router. The ISP gave us one that's serviceable but not great, and I have an old Asus N56U, but I want something with great range. Even though we just live in a 2br apartment, the walls in Germany are apparently quite dense and seem to block signals more.

Was looking to stay under $150 or so if possible, so it looks like the Archer C9 is a good bet?

I'm also thinking I'll buy a power line networking set since the phone drop is far away from my desktop.

Reviews of Google Wifi are coming out. Can the mesh network work with multiple wired connections? Specifically I'm thinking of having one hooked up directly to modem and another unit hooked up via powerline networking.
