Is it possible to uses 2 range extenders to get a connection around corners?
Or, is it possible to use 2 Belkin N1 wireless routers for the same purpose. I am trying to get a connection through approx. 6 walls. I get a faint connection, which goes in and out using the Belkin with a range extender (Linkseys).
Do you know of any other setup that may work?

Generally the N standard rotuer do not require any Range Extender s. However if you are trying to use Range Extender with N router. You need to use G or B/G mode mixed, also you have to change the channel from Auto (as in Linksys Router,not sure about Belkin Router) 6 or 11, So that the Wireless connection can detect the Range Extender.
