Greetings forum, have a question about wireless networking I hope someone can help with.


My cable modem has both hard-wired (4 ports) and wireless capability. I have run a cable to the farthest point in my home, ending in a 4-port hub. I would like to hook up a wireless access point to this hub (hard-wire the access point to the hub) and have it provide a stronger wireless signal to that end of the house. I can find many wireless repeaters that are not hard-wired, but can't find one that I can plug into the hub (getting the strongest signal possible).


Anyone know of a hard-wired wireless repeater I could purchase?

You would want a Access Point(AP) or a router in AP mode. 


Just make sure it is on a different wifi channel then your other network and the hub is a switch, and nothing with routing/NAT.
