I'm wanting to set up a small home wireless network so that 2 machines
can all share the broadband connection. But I've heard conflicting
reports about the reliability of the technology (dropped connections
etc). Is the technology good enough to provide sound networking in a
two up two down house with all the electrical interference one would
usually find. And if you know of a great solution, tell me the best
way of connecting PC to laptop this way.
On the box you get the impression all will work without problem but in
reality the range is often nowhere near what the customer is given the
impression should be expected.
I live in a 1930s brick built bungalow and sometimes struggle to get a
signal from two rooms away.
If your signal is there then it works well.
What may the best solution is to buy USB WiFi adapters as these
normally can be moved to get a better signal.
Often just moving the device a few feet gets better reception.
If you are anywhere near Welwyn Garden City you can pop in to our
computer club and see it in action.
