I am trying to improve the wifi coverage in a church, so a large building and part of it is very old, and stone, so not friendly to wifi. The route is unhelpfully situated at the end of the church / hall complex. I have finally found sockets that powerline WPA4220 (cloning SSID & pw) will work that get about half the complex (hall and rooms) covered and an ok Wifi signal that pushes into the church itself. the electricity in the church seems to be on a different circuit ( powerline led lights but no internet ). I had hoped then to pick up the Powerline signal with wifi extenders to strengthen and enlarge the wifi signal in the church itself but having tried several times I cant get the RE200 to properly repeat... it connects with a decent wifi but no internet. I am guessing but perhaps becuse the re200 is not connecting to the router that makes a difference.
The Church is stone and more than a hundred years and built to last several hundred more. The hall is on the end of the church and so the wifi signal just does not get through the stone walls which is why the powerline getting the broadcast from the WPA4220 sort of half way there is s big plus but a pure wifi solution won't get there.
- Is it possible to daisychain from a powerline wifi extender to a (or more than one) wifi repeater and if so what might i be doing wrong?
- Am i going about this the wrong way? is there a better solultion, other than obviously cabling ( that is problematic in an old listed building)
Thanks for any help.
