Hi neighbors, I have wifi in my house and it works fine everywhere except the guest bedroom.  I think the walls between the bedroom and the modem are the issue.  What are the options to remedy this problem? Thanks very much.

Moving the router closer to the bedroom, maybe then you will get a signal, or running an ethernet line to the bedroom.

Wifi doesn't work well in a vertical plane and in our Rio Rico two-story house, the DSL line was routed into my second floor office. I put the Almond on the ground floor behind the TV and greatly increased signal strength from the front yard to the back of the pool. The only hassle is getting it reset after the frequent power interruptions there that cause the wifi modem upstairs to reset, but the Almond tech help people are great. I have the original model and the newer version is supposed to be better. https://www.amazon.com/Securifi-Almond-Touchscreen-Wireless-Extender/dp/B0087NZ31S

Use a WIFI range extender or a power line adapter. You can get them at the phone company computer store maybe Walmart or Sam's.

Trouble with the extender is that they apparently cut the speed in the extended areas in half.

Not enough to worry about. Or you can hard wire it.

A set of power line adaptors work great.  Basically you plug in an ethernet cable to the adapter and then plug the adapter into an electrical outlet and the modem.  You do the same on the other end which can be anywhere as long as the electricity is on the same transformer.   You might be able have the second adapter as far away as your neighbor.  Caution, these adapter have different speeds so buy a good set - not the cheap set.  My Trendnet set where $28.  I use mine for a Roku on a remote TV.

Thanks for the great feedback.  da2434890 do you know of a local tech I can hire to do this for me?  This sort of thing is not my specialty.
