Which Actiontec Mi424wr for second WAP

Message 1 of 2
(772 Views)
I want to extend the range of my wireless network. I have an actiontec as the primary router and an Asus dual band router as an access point. I want to get a third router for the basement. Which Actiontec revision can I get and get cheap. I don't mind used. Also will I need to do anything different to add a second access point or is the process the same as adding the first?
Thanks

You didn't say which capabilities you want for the additional router.

 

Are wireless N and 1Gbit ports important?  If so, you want either a rev. G or rev. I.

The rev. I is $79 new from VZ.  Can be found used on ebay for less.

 

If 802.11g and 100Mbps ports are adequate, then rev. C through rev. F should suffice.

(The rev. F is draft 802.11n, so has limitations as far as 802.11n is concerned).
