Re: Ultra TV = Beta?

said by Body Count:

Can we have a switch plugged into one of the ethernet outlets for more data ports? You mentioned it had to be a router but maybe he has a switch?

You can have a switch, as long as it's only a switch. iPads and smartphones don't have ethernet ports, they have to be wirelessly connected to something, which would have to be at least a wireless AP or router.

So.. No solutions?

I can't really run with half house internet... I have 4 people living with me and we all require internet. What is my solution?

Unfortunately I'm not able to help, we can't support 3rd party devices. Many people here on the forums have had some luck with wireless AP's and range extenders. Maybe they will have some suggestions for you.

i turned the wireless off on the Arris. i have a trendnet and a d-link connected to the arris via ethernet and they act as AP's. DHCP is provided by the arris. no issues up to this point (knock on wood)

Is there a way to up the power to the crappy wireless in the gateway? I.l happily unplug the 3rd party solution if wow has one.

I dont think you will get a response about wireless range unless its something like, "well mine is perfect and I live in a three story house and get good signal everywhere!" But the reality is that its weak as hell and if they arent going to do something about it then at least enable bridge mode. The only reason its not there is because then the dlna server portion wont work properly. Well guess what, i have used it twice after I set it up and havent touched it since. first its to laggy and second there are other devices that do it better. Now I cant speak for everyone but I know many people fed up with weak wireless from the gateway. I have seen b only routers beat this gateway.
