Cat-6 wired internet...

We have Cat-6 hard wired into our new flat, and my bedroom is too far away from the router to get decent signal.

 

Therefore I have an outlet in the wall that connects directly to the router, right? I'd use that, but I want wireless in my room, really. If I get a signal booster/cheap router and plug it into this Cat-6 jobbie should it make my room a broadcast point for the wireless?

 

Seems like it would make sense, but I don't know what kind of machine I have to buy, any suggestions?

Hmm, :lol: I think so too. Not sure though and I'd hate to waste money on one if it didn't work.

 

When you use a router like I'm planning, is it basically a plug-in and it'll broadcast the signal job, or will I have to sort it out myself on a PC before it will work?

If you use a router, it'll need configuring or it could fuck up the whole network if it's on the same subnet as the main router.

 

I'd suggest just buying a wireless repeater.

So the wireless repeater wouldn't have anything to do with the ports in my room? I would like to have good strong reliable internet in her if I wanna game or stream video etc.

 

How would I configure the router 'TEX? Would it be through a program on my laptop? I'm canny novice when it come to internet tech.
