My modem and router is located at our second floor and it seems that the signal of the wifi connection doesnt reach the first floor. So I was thinking of a way to extend the reach of my connection through the use of a wifi extender. Is there any other alternative I could do to make the wifi connection reach the 1st floor? I was told I could use another router as an access point but I dont have any idea how to do that. >_< It would really help me if someone could enlighten me on these things. :D

If you use another router as an access point you would need to place that router on the second floor and run a cable to it. Otherwise you could buy a wireless repeater and place it in a position where it can extend the signal from the router to the second floor, something like this: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005LS6NNO/?tag=hyprod-20&hvad...

I have Linksys WRT120N. I live in the philippines and was wondering what kind of range extenders are compatible with my router. :D

Take a look at the Cisco Linksys RE1000.
