Alrighty, I'm currently in a 2 story house with a basement. The basement is where my "smart panel" is located. Currently, I have my modem (with built in wireless router) is also in the basement. I have installed a line that goes from the modem up into the attic where I have an 8 port unmanaged switch which then breaks into my wired connections. This part is all fine and dandy.

The help I need is that I wanted to still allow for a wireless connection around the house as well. I have a wireless range extender that I can connect to, but with the basement in the way, the signal to it is very poor. Is there a way to physically connect the wifi extender into the unmanaged switch and provide the wifi extension I am looking for?

I have tried to just install the device in the attic after setup was successful, but it did not seem to allow access to the range extender... or it would allow access without internet capability.

If I didn't explain this well, let me know and I'll see if I can't draw up something to link in here.

You may need to set it up as a wireless bridge. With my Verizon fios the router is slow. I think it is G speed so I have an Asus N router plugged in and use that as wireless. I do not have it setup as an access point. I am pretty sure I chose Bridge Mode.
