I use a powerline wi-fi extender for a dead spot in our house. They work reasonably well and are fairly simple to set up. Something like this would likely fit the bill:
Well, I went with the D-Link DAP1610's and they were a breeze to set up. The problem I found, was these devices were under minding my DHCP Reservations in my router. Static IP's I had created in the router, were now all over the place and the connectivity these devices failed and were not accessible by other devices that relied on the static IP.
Is there something I'm missing here? I trying making the DAP1610's static IP's and also have them get their IP's from the router, didn't seem to matter.
