- Questioncan i use this to connect a device that doesn't have wifi connectivity to the internet via an Ethernet cable? (8 Answers)
I have a PC that doesn't have a WiFi adapter on it, and instead of buying an adapter and putting it into the PC, i was just going to get this because it is around the same price, and I would end up with a better connection. If anyone can answer this I would appreciate it very much.Answers
- QuestionWhat are the main differences between this one and the linksys range extender that plugs in to the wall (RE6700) aside from the fact that this one does not connect direclty to an AC outlet. Is one better than the other? (3 Answers)Answers
Powerline adapter simply sends Ethernet data over your powerline, so it is just an Ethernet/lan cable that ties into your home electrical wiring to get from one room to the other. The wifi extender received the signal and broadcast the signal through your house withing its capabilities. The powerline requires a cat5 connection, it does not transmit a wifi signal and it has to be close to your computer in order to connect via cable. The wifi extender offers the ability to connect from anywhere in your house.
- QuestionCan this booster be used with a verizon wireless jetpack? (2 Answers)Answers
Maybe, but probably not. I did not locate at the point of use where the signal was weak, but instead about 25 feet away, half way to the main router. So, good signal from main router to half way point, then good signal from extender to the final destination.
- QuestionEW RJ45 Ports on router AMD range extender (9 Answers)
I have a Lynksys E2500 Router (which has five RJ45 ports) and am buying a Linksys RE6500 Range Extender (which has four RJ45 ports). I have two questions about this setup: 1. How many total WIRED devices may I connect to this system (router + range extender)? 2. What is the total number of devices (wired + WiFi) I can I connect combining the router + the range extender?Answers
1. While there are 5 RJ-45 jacks on the back of your router, one of them is a WAN jack for connecting to your Cable/DSL modem, leaving 4 LAN jacks to connect wired devices. The range extender gives you an additional 4 LAN jacks to connect to your local network, giving you a grand total of 8 wired Local Area Network connections. Of course, adding additional hubs can increase this amount. 2. Typically, home routers are configured for a Class C network configuration, meaning that you can have up to 254 total devices in your IP address range, but remember that the extender will count as one of those devices.
