I have a simple wireless network at my house. I got one standard Linksys wireless G router. The problem is, it barely doesn't reach the whole house, so I was thinking of somehow extending the range. I have been considering two options:
1. Buy a wireless range extender, or wireless repeater.
2. Upgrading to a wireless N router.
I really want to do option two, but I will still have one laptop that is wireless G. Will upgrading to wireless N really increase the range that much? Will it upgrade the range at all if I have a wireless G device on the network? From what I hear, one wireless G device will slow down all other devices, but I didn't see anything about it affecting range...
And those are the only two options because I can't really/want to run ethernet. If I were to run ethernet, I would just install a wireless access point.
What do you guys think? Any advice appreciated!
