I had this tiny little wireless router I picked up a long time ago, hopefully the link still works when you read this, the product has been discontinued for some time I think.
I've played with it in the past, but never had much luck with it, until tonight! One of the biggest problems I have is the WiFi connection in the grow room. While it is the bedroom closest to our internet router, I usually got between 50%-60% signal strength, and sometimes couldn't connect at all. I'm not happy with their service but we are locked in for another 2 years :(
This is from an earlier post, you can see it was a good day, the signal strength was in the 60's.
This is with the router plugged in and configured as a WiFi Repeater. It is located about halfway between the modules and the internet router, and has increased the signal strength by a large factor.
I'm curious if I'll notice a difference in reliability, it would be pretty hard, since the system has been really reliable lately. The Switch Module usually had the most problems, so that's where I should notice it most. I think that's because it is located tucked out of the way, where the other modules are out in the on on a shelf.
Hmmm, what else do I have tucked away here that I might be able to use...
