Not sure if this is the right area to post this, but it seems to be the closest on topic.
We have a long house floor plan. The most distant bedroom is about 90 feet from the location of our cable modem and our wifi router. We also usually have 3-4 different wifi users trying to log on at the same time in the bedrooms. The result is difficulty logging on and what seems to be some sort of bandwidth issue since my son, whose room is closest to the router,
Is always gaming via wifi which seems to starve the other users that are downstream from his room.
My iPad in particular seems to have problems picking up and maintaining the wifi connection
My question is what is the best way to improve the signal over this distance so the bedroom occupants can access the wifi with multiple other users and not have the signal repeatedly dropping off.
Should we get a more powerful router or set up some sort of relay/repeater that will boost the signal at near full strength to the end of the house.
Any input would be most welcome as this is getting so frustrating i've almost chucked my iPad in moments of distress after signal loss
Thanks for any suggestions
