Our local library has a dead zone in its wireless network because of books, shelves and floursent lighting. I want to mount a repeater with direct line of site to the router to fix the problem. It is not a range issue because the signal is available twice as far in other directions. Tried moving the router, but all that did was change the location of the dead zone. Thought about mounting it up high above the book shelves. I wasn't sure it would work and would require a new network drop to be installed. Library director didn't want to install drop and still have same problems. The libray has a D-Link DIR-655 wireless N router. D-Link says they do not have a repeater for this model. Which repeaters from another manufacturer would be a good match?

Thank you, I think that I have found my answer. ConnectGear has a wireless N access point and repeater with Universal repeater function, Model - WA660N.
