Wireless Router Range/ Hub


J

My cable modem is located in a back bedroom and my Linksys wireless Router
is having a hard time reaching some areas of the house.It also has four
wired ports that connect to other towers in the house and garage. If I put
it in my wife's office "in the middle" of the house it has great coverage.
However, to do this I have to link my desktop to the modem using a Ethernet
Hub instead of the router. Then put the Linksys on her desk. My question is:
Will this put the PCs at risk since they are connected to the cable modem
thru the Hub and not the router?
Thanks,

J.

Why not buy a Linksys wireless repeater, and put it in the office in the
middle of the house?

First of all, thos machines connected to the hub will have problems since
only one will be getting an IP Address from the modem and the best thing to
do is get the repeater as the above postersuggested.
