Help with thick walls in the house?


Beta member
I, along with 9 other friends have just moved into a student house at university. The internet supplied is of a sufficient speed, but people the other side from the house have problems receiving a signal strong enough to get a good connection due to the house being old and the walls being solid and thick.

I know we currently have a g router and was wondering if buying an n router would solve this problem?

Also, would it be possible to then use the old g router as a bridge of some kind somewhere else in the house if it was needed?

Budget is fairly tight so we were looking at something along the lines of

Thanks for any help :)

In theory, yes an N router will give you better range. But in practice it's hard to be 100% certain until it's up and running. I also believe that most routers can act as bridges to the network.
