Re: Setting up WiFi for a large home
Like stated, setup multiple AP's in corners of the house. Unlike what's been stated, I would suggest having them all on the same SSID and password, just different channels, or even let them auto choose a channel. This way there's only one SSID being broadcasted. This is what I've been doing for a few years and worked flawlessly.
On a side not, I got tired of having multiple AP's, so I buckled and got the d-link DAP-2553 and have been blown away. Tons of options and features, and the range is wicked. I've got it in the most center part of my house and sitting at the start of the drive-way, which is a good 350FT, I get 3-4 bars and can stream a 1080p video on my macbook air perfectly. If you don't mind spending ~150, this device should have no issues doing your whole house. I believe me house is 2,000SQFT per floor. Sits in middleish of house, mounted on a floor joist.
