At present time I have my WiFi router Netgear 4500 at one side of the house (on the second floor) and my smart TV on the other end of the house (on the first floor). Basically, I want to cover all of my house with the same network. I have difficulty finding a range extender that will basically extend my existing "MyWiFi" network without creating any secondary networks like MyWiFi1.
Just yesterday I purchased from Fry's NetGear Powerline 500 Mbps kit with WiFi access point. The guy in the store told me that these devices are easy to set up and they will extend my existing network under the same name. Well, it was indeed an easy set up, but once again I ended up with "MyWiFi" network with its limited range, but added "Netgear_EXT" network. I spend hours with Netgear tech on the phone only to be told to return this bundle back to the store and that I will always have two different network running in the house.
Anybody, had any success with type of devices that will extend your existing network without creating new one?
