my cable modem is at the far front corner of our 1 story house - i bought a diamondback repeater and put near the middle of the house. it works mostly great and provides coverage to most of the other half of the house... no real complaints other than it's a little spotty once you get outside.
But, i was wondering if an access point would work better?
This is a thread I was hoping Number Twelve would answer but anyone is welcome to chime in.
I have a fairly loud AC unit sitting next to my house. It is now 10 years old and has been about equally loud since my neighbor build his house next door. Before the house was built, there was nothing to reflect the sound so i don't remember how loud it was before the house was built.
I don't know about anyone else, But I'm starting to get really peeved at fox playing games with House MD. Since the new season started they bumped house week after week because of Baseball playoffs and the world series, then gave us a few episodes doled out every other week or so, not they haven't given use one for three weeks and wont until January 25th.
So I have been kicking around the idea of really delving into home automation. I have my feet in the kiddie pool with Linux servers with a Promox cluster set up with various VMs for Email, Media, and Download servers.
Here is what I need a little guidance with. For the first step of this journey I am attempting to create a whole house audio setup through software.
A few nights ago, I went out into my garage to put a load of laundry in the washing machine (yes, my laundry is in the garage) and the door somehow locked behind me. I checked all the doors to my house. All locked. Yup, I'm locked out of my house. I was just wearing some house clothes so I didn't have my keys or phone with me.
No problem. I'll call a friend who has a spare key. But...
