I have a Shaw Wireless Modem SMS on my top floor of my house, and I am having a issue with a loss of signal in the basement.
I cannot move this modem, as its required in the spot I need it.
I have ran a cable from the modem all the way in the basement for an xbox as I couldn't keep a signal strong enough for this to work.
I run about 15-20 wireless devices off this modem and have all four ports full also.
1 to Shaw Box
1 to PS3
1 to Weather station
1 to Xbox in Basement
I was wondering if I can run a wireless router off one of the ports.
Example, the line I ran down to the basement, can I plug this into a wireless router, and then use the wireless router to give a wireless signal to the xbox and a couple other devices in the basement.
If this can be done, what is required to do this.
