Hi All,
have thomson tg789vn as modem and router connected to my isp on the ground floor. internet and voip works fine just that the wireless signal on the second floor isn't good enough and do not cover the whole floor. running two laptops and two ipads and mobile phones on wifi.

need help and advice hoe to improve wifi signal on the second floor without using cables. have one netgear dgn2200 modem/router that i've used prior to the tg789vn. can i set up the wireless connection between the two? or should i use powerline home plugs?

appreciate your help and support!
thanks a lot!
regards,
almos

You could always user a repeater. In fact you can see if the netgear supports the repeater function.

This will take a current wireless signal and rebroadcast it from its location.

So you place the repeater on the 2nd floor where it can get the signal from the 1st floor the best. Then it will resend the signal from there covering the whole 2nd floor :wink:
