So, we have Verizon at my house. The Verizon signal comes into the Verizon router in the living room, but the signal is too weak in the furthest bedroom. I have tried using one of those WIFI extenders from Amazon but they simple don't work. The only way it works is using it to power my 5 port switch in the bedroom. What is a cost-effective way to extend the wireless network in the house? I tried plugging one of the CAT5 cables into the LAN side of a wireless router I had bought figuring it would just re-transmit the existing network connection in the room without giving out IP addresses... it worked for maybe a day and then stopped working. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
