Duplex house needs Internet connection!

thedramathedrama Member Posts: 291
We will be moving out in two months. New home is a duplex one. Thats why, i need a wireless device that will meet and fit my needs. Inside that duplex apartment, radio signals should be propagated vertically involving two flat room/floor (up/down) in order for 2 computers to receive Internet connection.

What would you suggest ?

    My personal favorite for home and small business use:

    wndr3700

    I've had this one running for 10 months now, not a single reboot required. I like the idea of dual bands, so I can put the slower "G" items on one, and leave the "N" devices for me. My router actually sits in the kitchen, and I get full coverage on a 1900 sq ft two story townhouse easily.

    Pretty much any wireless device should have no problem covering your two floor duplex, provided that you don't have lead floors or something.
    Decide what to be and go be it.

    Depends on your modem whether you should get a wireless router or wireless access point. Some modems do NAT and DHCP for you and you could just get a WAP otherwise you'll need a wireless router.
    No longer work in IT. Play around with stuff sometimes still and fix stuff for friends and relatives.

    I have a variety of DSL modems/routers such as products from Linksys, Netgear, TPlink, zyxel and so on.

    Which of them would you suggest me to buy (among them) and why?
