My wireless router does not cover my whole house… Can I do something maybe with multiple routers, perhaps wired to each other?

  • Instead of a wireless repeater, you could replace your router's antenna with a more sensitive one, and/or boost the signal output via a 3rd-party firmware. This won't extend the range as much as a repeater, and not all routers have replacable antennae or chipsets that support signal boosting. But it's an alternative for sites with the right equipment where you just need a liiiittle more range to fill in the gaps.
