Hello, I'd like to see if I understand this idea. I had a functional D-Link Wireless router that barely made it to the laptop, poor signal and dropping connection. I purchased a refurb Linksys N router. Figured it would be good for upgrade eventually and am using the G only. I was lead to believe that an access point was sort of like a repeater. It would pickup my Linskys on G and retransmit it. This would be good as I can place it in a spot where I can get much better coverage of the downstairs area. Am I correct in the above description. If not if you don't mind, could you S L O W L Y explain the differences and why not. Again appreciate your help. pascal Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
