Morning all, I have Verizon Fios with the Verizon modem/router in the basement with all of my A/V/Computer equipment. I need to extend the range of my wireless signal and little confused as to what I need. I already have CAT6 cable running throughout the house and homeruned to the basement area. I think the best way would be to run a CAT cable to an extender vs. using a wireless signal extender, but I'm confused as to what I actually need. I noticed that many of the wireless/wifi extenders are actually just wireless, and pass through the data therefore slowing it down some degree. My other concern is I want a seemless wifi signal, vs multiple SSIDs (do I just have to name them the same) So my question:
1) Is there a WiFi extender that is hardwired to the main router/modem?
2) Would I just buy a router and make it into an access point?
3) Would verizon Wifi extender be best bet (that is connected via Coax)?
Any guidance or clarification on what is the best route would be appreciated.
