Question about Computers & Internet
IS IT POSSIBLE TO CONNECT 2 PC'S THAT ARE APPROXIMATELY 800 FEET APART WITH A WIRELESS ROUTER? I'VE SEEN SOME THAT CAN GO UP TO 400 FEET. I AM TRYING TO PUT A PC IN MY WORKSHOP. THANKS
That can be done if you use a wireless repeater. The repeater would have to be setup about halfway between the current router and the workshop pc to boost the wireless signal.
Here's an example of a repeater sold by Best Buy: http://www.bestbuybusiness.com/bbfb/en/US/adirect/bestbuy?cmd=catProductDetail&showAddButton=true&productID=BB10596236
Another option is if the workshop and home are on the same electrical circuit you could use a powerline network kit to transmit the internet signal from the home to the workshop over the current electrical wiring. An example of the equipment needed to do that is here: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8569033&st=powerline&lp=3&type=product&cp=1&id=1188562910139

Yes.. you can buy the extended range linksys that will cover this range. You can also get a wireless repeater to extend the range; walk into bestbuy and you'll see the products there.

Step 1 Position your Belkin wireless G router.
Place your wireless G router in a wide open and central location. Don't connect the power plug into the router, yet. Make sure your computer is turned off.
Step 2 Connect all the devices.
Find the Ethernet cable that connects your PC to the modem. Unplug the Ethernet cable from your PC and insert it into the wireless G router's WAN port. You should have an additional Ethernet cable that came with your router. Take this cable and plug one end into one of the LAN ports on the router. Then connect the other end to your PC's Ethernet port.
Step 3 Turn on your modem, router, and PC.
Plug the power plug adapter into the modem. Turn on the modem. It'll take approximately 30 seconds for the modem to boot up. Connect the power plug adapter to the router and the other end into a power strip or outlet. Like the modem, it'll take about 30 seconds for the router to boot. Turn on your PC.
Step 4 Verify lights are on for your devices.
Make sure the following lights are on for your router: power, WAN, and LAN light. If you don't see any of them lit, confirm these devices are turned on. Make sure the Ethernet cable connections are installed correctly.
Step 5 Install and configure software.
Use the setup wizard application to configure your Belkin wireless G router. Set up features, such as creating your password and setting up your time zone. Continue to follow the setup wizard so you can configure ?other settings
