    extending the range of my wireless router
    I currently have a D-Link DIR-655 in one corner of my house and when my iPad 2 is in the opposite side of my house, I don't have a connection. I have the router transmitting over the b/g/n signal and nothing. I can't move the router any closer to the center of the home so I am looking for a way to extend the range of the signal to reach the far corner of my house. I'm not sure if you call the product I'm looking for a repeater but hopefully, you guys get the jist of what I'm trying to accomplish.

    I was wondering if the Airport Express will accomplish what I'm trying to do. I also looked on D-Link's website and they have a product they claim will extend the signal. It's the DAP-1525 or the DAP-1360.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    The Airport Express can only extend other Apple hardware - so it won't work in your setup.

    Either of the two D-Link parts you pointed to should work.

    You could also use a powerline adapter to help.
