I am currently on DSL 6Mbps and I will be upgraded to Uverse 12Mbps in about 2 weeks. I need some wifi tips and tricks to optimize my setup. I hope you guys/gals can help.
Currently I have a Dlink DSL-520B modem which is connected to my Dlink DAP-1522 access point. I also have a Netgear WN3000RP "Range Extender." All three of these are located upstairs. The access point is located one end other house while the range extender is located on the other side. I got the range extender because the wifi singal at the other end of the house was too low.
Anyway, I use the access point downstairs devices and the extender for upstairs devices. I 2 desktops that are wired to the DAP-1522 and about 11 wifi devices that are connected to either the access point or the extender.
So the issue is that sometimes I would lose connectivity on the wifi devices. The wired thing is that I would be connected just fine on one wireless device while the other does not connect. My only resolution is to reboot the DAP-1522 access point.
11 wifi devices does sound a bit too much, but they are mostly smartphones and tablets so they're not always there to suck all the bandwidth.
What are some tips/tricks I can use to optimize my wifi?
