Question about Microsoft MN-700 Wireless Router
Hi, I have a Microsoft MN-700 Wireless Base Station that works very well. However, it is located in one corner of the first floor of my house, with the result that the wireless signal is weak in the far corners of the house, both upstairs and in the basement. I cannot change the location of the existing MN-700 Wireless Base Station and cannot add Ethernet wiring to the house. I tried a LinkSys Range Extender, but that does not seem compatible with the MN-700. In any event, it is not WPA compliant. I also looked at a D-Link "Wireless G Range Extender," but was told that I would need a physical cable between the extender and the base station, so that approach does not seem as if it would work either. Does anyone have any suggestion for extending the range of the MN-700 in a way that does not involve the use of physical cables? Thanks very much.

Hi Entry Level Extenders (or by their real technological name Repeaters) are chipset dependent and therefore guaranteed to work with Hardware of the same Brand. You can try to build your Own Extender. Buy two Access Points (AP) one of them has to be able to be configured as Client. Configure the client AP to communicate to the MN-700 and then plug the second AP to it and configure it as a regular AP. Put the concoction in the middle of the way between the MN-700 and the destination computer. Doing such an arrangement might cost a little more, and be a little bulky. On the other hand it would not cut the bandwidth into Half as Repeaters do. Otherwise may be this can Help.
