LAN cable to wireless

Hi ,

What is the most budget friendly method to create another access point for a wifi limited room?

Current setup is Modem -> Router -> 3m LAN cable -> PC

I need something like:
Modem -> Router -> 3m LAN Cable - PC Wired & Wireless

Unmanaged switch

-------> WiFi AP

Or use WiFi repeater in other room.

There are a couple of ways.

1) Powerline - allows you to create another AP and also extends your coverage as well

2) Bridging - need additional wireless card to bridge the connection from LAN to Wifi

For me, i use powerline to extend my existing Access point in my house further to my Master bedroom( 4 room Flat). Either use back existing Access point or new Access Point.

If not, you have more cash. Wifi Mesh would be the way. More stable.

Yes yours desktop switch should works as specification is 10/100/1000Mbps

Layout:

Modem/ONT --> Router --> lan cable --> desktop switch --> PC | Router AP mode.

Using the above layout in my case with exception "lan cable" is data points at both end and to > desktop switch - to Router/laptops
The main router is in the living room and desktop switch is in the bedroom with router wireless coverage for phones.
