Wireless Network Range Extenders
Is there a way to replicate the original network so that I'm basically just boosting it and will have the same network ID, password, etc.? I ask because I use Sonos speakers throughout my house and have an extra one I take out in my backyard with me. The speaker can connect to the original network, but my phone/controller cannot if I take more than one step away from the house. Unfortunately, to control it out there I have to be connected to the same network that the speakers are.
I ended up attempting to convert my old router into an extender and was going to try to use the same SSID, password, MAC, etc. However, couldn't get it to work. I ended up getting a Linksys range extender (RE2000) at Best Buy (I chose that one because my router is Linksys) and set it up. I was wrong about creating a second "network." @frankspin was right...it just extended the network using the same SSID, etc. and everything works great.
