Can I create a second wireless network in my house since the first one does not reach where I want it to?

by on January 5, 2011

Q: I have a broadband Internet connection and a speedtouch wireless router. The thing is the wireless signal is very weak and almost doesn’t exist in my room where I would like to connect through my iPhone. However I have an Ethernet cable connected to the router that reaches through my room. What I need to buy and how I will be able to create a new hotspot in my room using the Ethernet cable? Using a laptop or a desktop computer with a wireless card is not a solution for me since I don’t have a pc/laptop in my room and also I want this hotspot to be available all the time without needing to start up a PC or something.

    I suggest you read WiFi Signal Booster Options because it will give you some options for extending the range of your existing network to cover all the areas of your house.

    I think setting up a second wireless network would be a pain because you would not be able to move around the house without changing the WiFi network you are on.

    Either way you will have to buy another device be it a booster, a wireless router, an access point, etc so it might even make sense to buy a new wireless router that is better than the current one you have and that would be able to cover you entire house without any problems.
