Setup: My Buffalo WHR-G300N wireless router is on the 2nd floor of the house. The house is already hardwired so all 3 floors (basement included) has an available wired connection to the net (cable modem next to the router on the 2nd floor). I also want wireless capabilities on the 1st floor & basement, but the WHR-G300N is less than reliable on long-period surfing. Wireless connection to the basement is pretty much non-existent.
Possible/best solution: Since a cat5 cable is connected from the 2nd floor to the 1st floor, and another cat5 cable is connected from the 2nd floor to the basement, I was thinking of buying 2 additional WHR-G300N wireless router and connect each one to each floor wired-connected. Meaning, the 2 additional WHR-G300N are communicating to the main WHR-G300N on the 2nd floor NOT WIRELESSLY, but through cat5 connection. This, in theory, would solve my wireless glitches on every floor of the house. In theory...
Question: If the above setup is possible, what (if any) would be my settings on the 2nd & 3rd WHR-G300N, so it can talk properly with the primary WHR-G300N on the 2nd floor. Do I also need to change settings on the primary router? Would this setup even work at all? I'm assuming all 3 routers wired-connected would be easier to configure, than having all 3 talk wirelessly. I don't want to buy 2 additional WHR-G300N if what I'm assuming to be a solution would not work at all.
Thanks for any help you can share.
