Here in Vancouver I have Shaw for my ISP. They gave us a Hitron CGNM-2250 modem which has had good enough WiFi strength for the most part but we want to add an AP. Can anyone suggest one with a reasonable price that we could invest in?
We live in a 3 story townhouse, the modem comes in on the top floor and has hardwired Cat5e between it and the bottom floor where the home theater room is located. We get great signal strength on the center floor in the main living space/kitchen/dining. The basement gets weak signal, but all primary devices like TV/Computers/NAS are hardwired. We find we want to be able to use our phones/laptops when down there and would prefer seamless handoff if available.
I have plenty of available ethernet ports either in the server closet (out of sight but close enough that it shouldn't impact signal too much), at the computer desk, or near the TV. I could mount an AP at any of these locations, we are only looking to improve the signal in the basement and not concerned about improving the rest of the house.
Anything in the $100-$150 pricerange that would serve the purpose? Any of these seem appropriate? We don't need maximum performance out of it and at most it will be used for streaming or browsing the web while the desktop handles anything severe duty. We also do not use the 5ghz band as I've always had issues when trying to run off it.http://www.ncix.com/detail/ubiquiti-unifi-ap-ac-lite-802-11ac-2-4ghz-35-115450.htmhttp://www.ncix.com/detail/ubiquiti-unifi-ap-802-11n-300mbps-c2-95997.htm
