Hi all,I am having a BSNL broadband WiFi connection at my office in basement. I can use my laptop at basement and also at ground floor of the building but it does not work at first and second floors of the building.Do anyone has any idea how can I extend the rage of WiFi coverage to make it available on first floor and second floor also.Some body told me that a third party access point does not work with bsnl broad band router. Any ideas about that?Amilan

You can buy a WiFi AP that has a stronger signal and higher range. Or if your current AP suports external antenna, you can attach a bigger (around 28 inches) antenna to AP.

Is it possible to connect two routers in series? I am looking for a wireless adsl router so one vendor suggested that i connect a Dlink 524 to a standard dlink 502T to get the wireless functionality rather than spend a bomb on the dlink g604T. Any clues? :unsure:

Thats what I do.

I have a D Link 502T from MTNL. On top of that I use Netgear WiFi Ap/Router. It is easy. Posts in this forum have detailed steps.
