Here's a crude representation of what I've got at home:
floor 2 INTERNETS ---- MODEM/ROUTER ---- MY COMPUTER | floor 1 WIFI REPEATER ---- stuff | floor 0 more stuff TELEVISION
Now, as part of our sat tv subscription we can get an additional service if we connect our decoder (located by
TELEVISION obviously) to the internet. What they suggest is buying a Netgear 3DHD WIRELESS HOME THEATER NETWORKING KIT This seems incredibly suspicious.
What does this thing actually do that our existing wireless-enabled routers doesn't do?
What's the point of having a third wifi router in the same house, this time only for one television?
If I do decide to plunge €99 for this, should I connect it to the WiFi repeater (which does not provide AAA quality internet, at least for all gaming purposes) or to my modem/router (risking issues with low signal?).
