Have had some headaches with setting up wireless in my apartment. My first attempt was to buy a powerful wireless router and just have one in the living room. But the signal was abysmal in the bedroom and that router died after one day. The apartment is 100 square meters so not huge but signals can't pass through the walls well.
So i already have one of these from my isp:
which i like because it 'just works' and it gives excellent signal strength everywhere in my living room that is within line of sight. However the signal is horrible in the bedroom once it passes through a wall.
So my question is, if i buy a second one of the above, what is the best way to extend the wireless network keeping the same SSID?
Should i use the second as a repeater and accept half throughput? Would having the throughput be noticeable to my internet experience? (my internet is fiber so fast).
Or should i connect them both to the fios modem via Ethernet cable and just run a long cable to the bedroom? Thanks for advice
