WiFi and Buffering

FeedbackComcast sits at end of amplified sixty foot run. Fine for Win10 next to it, but wifi signal to laptop in another room suffers with closeness of modem/router few inches from pc.

 

     Result is not surprisingly constant buffering of hampered signal to laptop. Amplifier is doing great job, but wifi signal only 100 mW or less.

 

     Solution: Run 50 ohm coax to Ethernet port of laptop, or forget trying to stream signal to laptop and go back to using adjacent TV set.

 

     Wifi next to PC very bad idea, but can't avoid unless elevate modem/router to get unimpeded signal.
