I just recently moved in to a new apartment to find out that the wifi doesn't consistently reach my room (it would have been great if they'd mentioned that before I moved in). My 6 year old laptop will connect with 2/5 bars. My desktop, with a better wireless card and antenna, will see the router but by the time I go to connect it's lost. I'd also like to try to connect my cell phone but I haven't tried to see if it will reach yet. Eventually I'll have an xbox I'd like to connect too. My options and questions: 1. Powerline adapter would work to connect my desktop, but then my other devices are screwed. 2. Additional router in my room. Not sure how this works. Do I just hook it into the cable line and operate on a different frequency? How involved is this? 3. Range extender. Will this simply solve my problem? 4. Access point. Do these extend the range and allow more devices? I'm worried the ancient router wont have enough ports. What would be the best option for me?
