Wireless Internet Access/Location of cable modem and router.

All,

We are thinking about having wireless internet access in our Row Home, but are doing without the structured wiring package. We were wondering if anyone else has done something similar, and if so, where you placed the cable modem and wireless router, and whether you had to add any cable drops or electrical outlets to do so.

Thanks,

Daniel

Daniel,

I don't quite understand the question. As long as you have the cable modem connected to the cable jack in your house. The wireless router will be able to connect to your modem and you should be able to have wireless coverage in your house. There should not be another change in the exciting wiring structure

Thanks for the answer. I didn't know if people had any difficulty with reception of a wireless signal in particular areas of the house and had suggestions on optimal placement of the wireless router that might require an additional cable drop/electrical outlet. We were thinking of putting it in the master bedroom closet.

Coupla tips gleaned from the internet:

- Position your wireless router in a central location.
Avoid placing your router next to an outside wall of your home. Most router antennas are omni-directional. This means that the signal radiates from the antenna in all directions equally. Place the router as close to the center of your home as you can to increase the strength of your wireless signal throughout your home.

- Move the wireless router off of the floor and away from walls and metal objects, such as metal file cabinets.
Putting your router on the floor, or next to walls or metal objects, can diminish the signal strength, because the router's signal is broadcast in the shape of a sphere. The fewer physical obstructions between your computer and the router's signal, the more likely that you'll be using the router's full signal strength. This means a stronger Internet connection from greater distances in your home. For more information, see 10 tips for improving your wireless network.

- Reduce wireless interference.
Your cordless phone or other wireless electronics are sending signals, too. If they're close together, they may interfere with each other. You can help prevent interference by changing the location of your cordless phone base station, changing the frequency channel on your wireless router, or avoiding wireless electronics that use the 2.4-gigahertz (GHz) frequency. If you have trouble reducing the amount of wireless interference, look for cordless phones and other wireless electronics that use the 5.8-GHz or 900-megahertz frequencies.

Hope this helps.

You could always install a repeater or another router if you have signal problems...
