My ISP advertises a DSL download speed of 3meg and sometimes (~50% of the time) I get that. Often it's between 1 and 2 meg.

Honestly, where I am located, I'm happy and feel lucky to get that. Really didn't want to go to satellite.

I spoke too soon kind of.Yes, I get better signals with the repeater IF I can get online, but I can't seem to. It [my laptop] just doesn't like the second signal. The tech person came out and spent 2 hours and honestly in the end it didn't help. Yes the signal is better, but if my laptop won't accept the new connection a better signal does me no good.

So now I have a couple choices. Complain to the cable company or buy a plug in where the whole house is wired. Powerline adapter? I don't know. I think at this point I will complain to the cable company. My back bedroom is just cursed with a lousy wi-fi signal.

I know your struggling for signal too. What gets me is everyone else in the house gets good signal but me. I know , I went around the house and tested the speed.
