I need to extend my WIFI in my house. I a bought a CISCO

Customer Question

I need to extend my WIFI in my house. I a bought a CISCO R-1000 but there was no improvement. We have laptops in the kitchen, about 20 feet from the router. I placed the CISCO half way in between, no improvement, and next to the laptops, no improvement.
I followed the installation instructions. Is there a better extender or is a powerline adapter better?

Richard, You are the second expert to answer my original question. There was something wrong with the web site, for a period of time I couldn't answer the experts questions which made it very confusing. During this period I contacted the manufacturer and we were able to sort out the problem. Thank you for answering.

If there is anything else I can for you please let me know
