Hope everyone enjoyed their holiday. Quick question - I just set up an access point downstairs in my house. My primary wireless router is upstairs. The second wireless router is downstairs (hardwired to primary router), on a different channel, with the DHCP disabled, and a static IP address assigned that is outside of the range of our dynamic IP addresses assigned by primary router.
My question is how can I test that this has created an improvement in the speed downstairs (by extending the range). I would think I could sit in one spot and test the speed with the secondary router inactive and then again with it active.
What do you guys think?
