    Hi. We have a ranch with 3 houses that all share wifi. Not sure how good the other 2 houses receive but anyway... They told me once that it seems limited the number of devices that can connect. I try to remember to turn off all my devices when I go so I can control what connects.

    Would buying a new router help? Or am I looking at a windows issue? That doesn't make sense tho in this day of everything connecting.

    I'd also like to figure out a way to boost signal. The houses are line of site and the old link sys router is in a window.

    Thanks for suggestions

    How far apart are the homes and are the homes inter connected with network cabling? If not, are there any conduits between the homes?

    If "old" means 802.11g then a router with newer technology will almost certainly help.

    i'll have to look but it probably is that old. here is a map of the layout. (no judging! i am not an artist! lol)

    I would really like to also boost signal reception. It's like a little family compound.
