I have poor reception in various areas of my house (who doesn't right?)
I have a Verizon Fios wifi router in one area which give me decent coverage over most of the house. From the Fios router, I have run a cat5 to the area of the house where I get poor reception. At the end of this run (call it the guest room) is a basic non-wifi router which works well for the equipment in that area that are cat5 capable. Is there a way to put a wifi router at the end of this same run which will essentially extend the range of my same home network?
What I am trying to avoid is having a sort of separate or sub network which is not seamless with the original fios network. For example, I have a printer in the guest room which has wifi, but no cat5 jack. With the bad reception and no jack, I can't use the printer from the rest of the house. I would like this printer to 'seen' by the Windows 7 computers in the rest of the house. Similarly, but less importantly, it would be great if my phone seamlessly switched to the new router when I'm in that area.
Perhaps this is as easy as replacing my standard router with a wifi router and setting the SSID to be the same as my Fios network but I'm guessing it is harder than that?
