I have an old wired hub on my 2nd floor to hook up my xbox, should I attach an antenna to it?

Some options....

  • make sure your router is at maximum power?
  • are you using wireless N for maximum results?
  • better antennas?
  • directional antennas (I heard some tried to put their modem/router in a steel mixing bowl to defect the sound upwards)
  • repeaters/extenders?
  • PowerLine extenders?

Beware of power line extenders. They have a tendency to be problematic for anything gaming related.
