Went to a teachers house yesterday (own free will ). They have a Sky BB router in the study, and that pumps out wifi to most of the house. Unfortunately, the living room isn't part of the wifi covered area.
They had a Belkin wifi extender but I tried and it just didn't want to connect to the same SSID and work.
I have suggested they look at homeplug wireless, but with the cost I don't want to say buy it if I can't be sure it works.
From what I understand, one end will go into a socket near the router, and CAT5 into the router itself. The other end will go wherever you have the weak/no signal. I'm assuming they can be used with any manufacturer for router, etc? I don't want to find they buy, for example, a netgear set and it only works with netgear routers or something along those lines.
Also one makers homepage says it supports WPA and WPA2. Does that cover WPA-PSK?
Any advice would be appreciated. They do want wireless, so a normal homeplug or networking with CAT5 is not an option.
This is the bit that concerns me on one makers site: The dLAN Wireless extender can be integrated simply by plugging it into an existing dLAN network
Does that mean [B]only[B] dLAN networks are compatible?
