My house has a smart box, and all cables (coax and cat6) in the house run to it. The box is on the second floor in a closet in the far corner (furthest location from my office). I keep my modem and WiFi router on a shelf next to it. That way I am able to easily plug in all rooms into the router.
The unfortunate effect is that the WiFi signal doesn't have that great of a reach to the other side of my house. My router has 3 antenna on it, and all coax cables are being unused in my house. Is it possible to connect a coax cable to my router and then attach the antenna to the other end in another room effectively giving me an "extension" cord of sorts to the location of one of the antenna?
I guess there are two(three?) questions here:
- Do adapter exists that will let you connect a coax cable to a wireless router's antenna connector? I will need similar connector to let me screw the antenna into the other end of the cable.
- What is that connector even called?
- Will the signal carry OK?
