    The second floor of my home has no ethernet jacks nor any way to install cabling. I have several devices in my second floor office that I want to connect to my network. A couple have 802.11b or g connectivity, but most only have ethernet jacks. Also, while Windows is pretty easy to find a USB...

    Wifi 6, mesh, and cameras

    PROBLEM: 1) My current setup works, but cannot be upgraded to latest firmware and remain stable (see below). 2) wifi is weaker in the bedrooms on the opposite end of the house, and that may be more significant soon with needs for more PCs in those poor signal rooms (-70+ dbm, and -80+ if...
