|I have a client, he's got a modem in his bedroom that is attached to a wireless router. that router has a CAT5e going to a living room computer, his computer located in his bedroom with the router and modem.|
He's got 5 wireless computers in the house as well as one other CAT5e connected computer to the router in his bedroom (less than 100 feet away)
What I need is to extend the range of the wireless router because of his home's construction. (plaster over wire lathing) so his daughter can get wireless signal in her bedroom which is about 15 feet from the living room computer.
My plan is to wire the house like this..
1) Go from MODEM (Comcast SB 5100) to a 4 port switch
2) Plug in Existing bedroom computer to switch.
3) From switch plug in existing CAT5e to relocated router in living room.
4) Plug in living room Computer to the ROUTER port 1 (I know does not matter just clarifying).
He's adamant about using the hardware he's got currently which is :
1 4 port switch
1 wireless dual band router
1 Surfboard 5100 Cable modem
existing Ethernet cable
Does anyone here see anything wrong with this plan (not the method but the plan)?
