What type of walls does he have in his home? Are they Sheetrock or lath and plaster? Believe it or not it makes a big difference what the walls are constructed of.

I take that to mean the exterior walls. I should have been more clear. What is the construction of the interior walls? This will determine how well the wireless signal is transmitted and received.

The first thing your friend needs to do is check with his ISP to find out what devices they approve for use. Sometimes they have an approved device list online.

 

Out of curiousity, who is the ISP?

Hi he just got off with CC they say all modems are compaitable   :whistle:

 

BTW I seriously doubt that The guys at CC are recommending that he can still rent a modem or purchase one from Netgear/Dlink/LinkSys

Well, 'standard for construction' doesn't help me. The standard here in the US was lath and plaster up until the mid to late 50's. After that sheetrock became the standard. So if the home were here in the US, the answer would become age of home dependent. Anything older than say the 1940's and you're likely looking at lath and plaster and a shorter range for signal and probably need range extenders and possibly directional antennas. If it's sheetrock placement of the base unit and area of use becomes more of a factor as you may not need the extra devices to boost signal and range.

He's going to have a difficult time with the density of construction material. It's going to be quite difficult to get decent signal strength thorough brick and mortar for any significant distance. He's going to need to utilize signal strength meters which can be iphone or android phone apps or standalone tools. Then map out where he will use the the devices wirelessly and focus the signals in those areas.
