Hello,

A couple of people have recently asked me about extending their wireless network and Ive always told them to look for Amped Wireless as Ive heard a lot of good things about them (on Neowin and other sites).

What standalone access point model is recommended? How about a router?

Thank you

Well, I for one am currently using a Cisco E4200 dual band

it's a moderately big house by UK standards, 4 bedrooms with a 5th conversion, End of Terrace, extended bathroom and kitchen blah blah blah.

And the 2.4 band more than is sufficient throughout the house

the 5ghz is connected to a Netgear Bridge I picked up cheap on ebay and only connects my blue ray and ps3

 

I had trouble finding amped gear too, when I upgraded to the 4200.

The 3rd party seller in your country is ripping you off, not amazon. Maybe their costs are higher due to importing?

You  can order Amped Wireless' online store and they ship to you wherever you are in Europe.

 

When you are ready to place the order. you can choose the country from the list and fill the rest of your info of whereabouts and your payment method.

I see €254 from your link.
Back on topic amped make great products.

You could also look at an access point and use dd-wrt 3rd party firmware. I guess it depends on the features you require.

Did not know that, thank you :)

Do you know if they send the proper AC adapter? Since I see you in the UK :)
