Hi All,

Currently, i have a setup of Dlink DIR-655 Wireless Router (Primary Router) and i live in a pretty big house. So wireless signal can get quite low and it keeps dropping. I have tried those Powerline homeplugs and it doesn't work that well.

I have read that i can use another wireless router (Secondary AP) as an wireless access point? To act more as a range extender. I can connect the Secondary AP to the Primary AP using a LAN cable.

Any suggestions on the type of device i can use with the Dlink DIR 655? Or will another Wireless N router will do?

Appreciate consideration on the simple integration of both the routers. Thanks

Best solution

You could use any router of your liking and configure it as an AP

Does it make any performance difference depending on what wireless routers i choose to use? Otherwise, i will choose any that is available and within my budget of course. :)
