Good afternoon, We are now with a customer on the Southam Road Near Gaydon and Kineton in Warwickshire, We are here to test the viability of using Netgear wireless access points to extend the range of the customers wireless broadband from an office in the main house to an annex at the other side of the building, After surveying and testing several set ups it was found to be cost prohibitive at this time, The issue here is that the building is made from thick cotswold Stone and although we could get a signal though its would require a minimum of 3 wireless access points to keep the signal strength high enough to use, So may be worth another look when the prices come down but at the moment it is cheaper to install another line and pay for broadband for a few years.
