I have read and read, with the technology are there any switches made that can be used before a wireless router? My setup is now cable>modem (wndr3700v2)>switch. I want to extend wireless in a big house and put the router after the switch as I dont need wireless where thecable modem is, its all hard wired.
So cable>Modem>switch>wan router.
I am told do access point but only if you gurus tell me too!
I just want to move wireless modem to middle of house, any help PLEASE.
If it helps to look on it this way, a router is just a switch with a wireless function as an additional feature. A repeater, or access point, in another part of the house can pick up the signal and strengthen it before transmitting to local computers.
