    Does edimax do any routers?

    It is a open wifi in a caravan park which i need to draw in the signal any help on a new router.

    Re: network items

    Are you sure the access point is fried? I have found the power supplies tend to be far less reliable than the access points, so if you have a spare PSU of the right rating from an old router or switch then you might find it works just fine.

    Are you trying to tap into an open wifi or provide an open wifi?

    Re: network items

    Sounds to me (Caravan park, AP, draw in) that they are having issues receiving wifi.

    Unfortunately, its normally the broadcaster that's the main issue with signal strength.

    You could try larger antennae on your AP or switch to something like https://www.comms-express.com/produc...ap-long-range/
    Main PC: Asus Rampage IV Extreme / 3960X@4.5GHz / Antec H1200 Pro / 32GB DDR3-1866 Quad Channel / Sapphire Fury X / Areca 1680 / 850W EVGA SuperNOVA Gold 2 / Corsair 600T / 2x Dell 3007 / 4 x 250GB SSD + 2 x 80GB SSD / 4 x 1TB HDD (RAID 10) / Windows 10 Pro, Yosemite & Ubuntu
    HTPC: AsRock Z77 Pro 4 / 3770K@4.2GHz / 24GB / GTX 1080 / SST-LC20 / Antec TP-550 / Hisense 65k5510 4K TV / HTC Vive / 2 x 240GB SSD + 12TB HDD Space / Race Seat / Logitech G29 / Win 10 Pro
    HTPC2: Asus AM1I-A / 5150 / 4GB / Corsair Force 3 240GB / Silverstone SST-ML05B + ST30SF / Samsung UE60H6200 TV / Windows 10 Pro
    Spare/Loaner: Gigabyte EX58-UD5 / i950 / 12GB / HD7870 / Corsair 300R / Silverpower 700W modular
    NAS 1: HP N40L / 12GB ECC RAM / 2 x 3TB Arrays || NAS 2: Dell PowerEdge T110 II / 24GB ECC RAM / 2 x 3TB Hybrid arrays || Network:Buffalo WZR-1166DHP w/DD-WRT + HP ProCurve 1800-24G

    Given the antenna I would assume he's using the access point as either a booster, or a bridge with another router/AP attached. So all broadcasts from his devices would be routed through the AP.
