    A client of mine has a very large house and wants to extend the range of his wireless signal. He is able to get signal everywhere except the kitchen.

    Which range extender or access point is the best one to pair up with 2Wire's modem/wireless router?

    If there is not a reliable one, then I could just use Linksys products.

    I could hook up a WRT54G to the 2wire and have that be a hard connection, and then get a WAP54G to act as a repeater. Or, should I get two WAP54G's and not get the WRT54G and set it up the same way I just described? And would I set up the 2Wire as a bridge? Is that possible? Links as to how?

    Thanks.
