I have Verizon DSL (all I can get in my area) with a wireless router, My house has three levels and the top level is where the modem and router are. The house is approx. 4,000 Square Feet (With an Upstairs, Middle, and bottom level). I have tried for 8 years to try and get a reliable connection throughout the house.. ie. Wireless Repeaters etc. and all that leaves me with is and slow and intermittent connection. Here is my idea. There is a coaxial jack next to my router and it is not in use, there are also a few unused jacks in my house (no Ethernet unfortunately) I want to get a MOCA Adapter: Like this one http://www.amazon.com/Actiontec-Ethernet-Adapter-Service-ECB2500CK01/dp/B008EQ4BQG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1388294393&sr=8-1&keywords=coax+to+ethernet+converter and use it on the top level and the other two and connect access points to them. I would appreciate any advice for how I could make this better, and if it is realistic. My other big question is, if I do this setup, will I be able to print using my shared usb printer from which I can print wirelessly currently, and can I use my 1tb external hard drive setup as a mapped network drive which is connected to my wireless router.
I have Verizon DSL 7MBPS (The fastest I can get in my area) (At speedtest.net it is about 6.50 MBPS) and a Belkin F9K1112 Wireless AC Router
I am completely open to any better ideas, I just want a reliable wireless network throughout my house... And finally. I thought I would throw in the fact that I have 8 Computers and use Xbox Live on this network, and the computers are spread out and the Xbox is on the bottom floor (wireless).
Feel Free to ask any questions about my current setup... Thanks in advance for the much needed help.
