Well , I have a big house and I need a long range router that will penetrate walls . Including 0.5meter wall . If possible .
I tried wireless extenders but they are a bleep to use and dont work properly .
I also dont have the option to use an Ethernet cable throughout the house.
Im in need of a long range router . 
Thank you

Wifi "strength" is controlled in the US so you will only find so much on the consumer end. What router do you have now? What kind of Wifi do the devices have that would be connecting? 

 

In general, range is given as LOS. There isn't a clear way of determining how much wall it will go through. Your better off with 2.4Ghz then 5 but dealing with any stone in the building material I think you are going to be out of luck. 

 

Have you considered powerline? Do you have coaxial outlets in the room you want internet?

I dont live in the US .

You probably won't know this router because it's only produced in my country but D LINK DSL 6850U .

I dont know what powerlines are and if they are supported in my country .
I dont have coaxial outlets .

 

I heard OnHub is good for a good house

Nevermind. I think I may be too technical for this question. Good luck.

By the sound of it you need to look into getting a couple DLink wifi extenders. Something like this Here.
