Looking to connect up the new apartment. Renting so can't install cables around the place so going to try make sure I configure the Wireless so both strength and speed are good both for internal file transfer and connecting to internet.
Internet connection 10/20mb line (may upgrade from 10)
● Dell PC with Windows Vista running on it. (2 rooms away from the point of the wireless router.)
● Mac Book Pro
● XBox 360 (right beside in point)
● Dell Laptop
- I'm looking to share files between all devices if possible.
Few basics I'm working on
The 'G' Wireless speeds are plenty fast for connecting to internet as my internet connection is only 10mbs and 'G' goes up to 54?
if I want to use the 'N' Standard I'll need to update my standard Cisco EPC2425 router or turn off the wireless on it and connect a more powerful router by cable?
- D-Link AirPlus XtremeG - 108Mbps Super G Wireless 802.11g PCI Adapter) be able to connect to the Cisco router at up to 104mbs? In the pdf for the cisco router it just says:
" ● 802.11g Wireless Access Point with 4 service set identifiers (SSIDs)
● Wireless Protected Setup (WPS), including a push button switch to activate WPS for simplified and secure wireless setup "
A person has suggested the best way get my PC connected at fast speeds is using "homeplugs"
Sounds like it just might be the best way? any thoughts or gotchas to watch out for?
