Hi

I am having abit of a drama with this new spark wireless broadband. The place where I had allocated for my modem/router to go. Does not pickup great signal. very little I may add.

Is there a WiFi extender / router I could use with the wireless broadband modem from spark to pick up the signal and distribute it throughout the house

Any help would be much appreciated

Cheers
N

Make it clear whether you are talking about improving reception on 3G/4G WAN connection wireless or the 802.11x on the LAN side produced by access point in modem/router??

Hi

I think what I need is something to be able to extend the existing wifi and also be able to act as a port to connect wired to my router which is networked to various areas of the house in the ceiling.

is there something that can do that?

Do you have a patch panel? Is there a network port near the Spark 4G modem?




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
