Windows 7: Extending your wireless range

Extending your wireless range

I've just installed and setup a wireless extender for a friend of mine whose wireless 3com router was upstairs and had very poor coverage downstairs for his laptop ... I can highly recommend the Netgear WN2000RPT WiFi Range Extender simple to setup and easy to use and works like a charm ... I'm not trying to advertise equipment just trying to share my experience and if anyone has issues like this, give it a go (works even better if the router is a netgear aswell)

Thanks for the information PooMan.

It won't benefit me as I live in an apartment on the same level, but it's handy to know for future reference as I'm always being asked to check computer problems for friends and neighbours.

Wireless network not in range
Hello, My network card (Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g) doesn't detect my wireless network under Windows 7, but it does under Ubuntu. While I don't see the network under Windows 7, I do see a list of other networks near me. Funny thing: it doesn't appear to be a problem of the card...
