Hi everyone,
My boyfriend's desktop is in the basement, which doesn't get the best internet connection. It's very unreliable, which is especially frustrating when trying to install updates for things. The house has a wireless router. He tried hooking up a repeater and it didn't work. I'm wondering if there is anything else that could help boost his computer's ability to connect to the wireless router's internet connection. Any thoughts, tips, suggestions? Thanks for your help - I love this forum!

Changing the location, orientation of the router and or the basement machine may help.

But as Broni said. Running ethernet cable is the best most sure way to improve things.
