I bought a new home which I will move into later this year. The home is fairly large at 2750 sqft and a full basement.
It is pre-wired with Cat5e with the drops all going down into the unfinished basement. I think there are about 8 data drops.
For the most part things like Xboxes, PCs will go directly to Ethernet, but I also want good WiFi coverage from top to bottom for smartphones, tablets, laptops and other things where no Ethernet is available.
My current router, Linksys EA6500 doesn't even do well in my current 1200 sqft home. So I assume I'll need an extender or wap or something but wanted to get some advice here.
What do I need where the drops are? A router or switch?
Best way to extend WiFi in this situation?
