I'm in the market for a good WIFI router/switch/repeater. Looking for something with at least 5 1Gig ports and the ability to repeat/extend the signal to another Access Point which is up stairs so i don't need to run wired Ethernet to the other side of the house.
Looking online, This Western Digital N900 looks nice however it doesn't appear to have the repeater functionality.
Anyone buy anything recently which is working out well? Or got a tip on something out there?
I also just got a Chromebook for school but the WiFi signal on it sucks. I don't think it is my college's routers because it picks up my phone and iPad fine. Is there any way to boost the signal strength of the Chromebook so that I can get a stable connection around campus or at least in my apartment?
I currently have a desk top and a lap top that until recently were both functioning well on my wireless local network. The lap top has recently dropped its connection. It no longer identifies as having a wi-fi adapter. Before I buy an external adapter I would like to know if there is/are any other remedies that should be considered.Thanks
Was curious if anyone here knew of some decent network monitoring software, preferably free?
Recently I've been getting a lot of delays when we watch movies through Roku, which is abnormal. There are a lot of devices that get connected to the network, but not all at the same time (several apple devices, printers, a couple of pcs, roku, etc.) I just wanted to find the root of the hold ups on the network, if it's coming from devices, our router, ISP, etc.
There has got to be software that does this, just wondering if anyone has some good recommendations.
