Know all to well that I have absolute fun with doing all sorts new designs and over coming wiring wonders to make stuff work correctly even if the route I take isn't the simplest. With that being said, we have a network issue that I'd like to bring to the table. You see we are huge wireless printing fans, however our printers lose connection with the network time to EMI and while the network is operating correctly packets just ... well they vanish in transmission. This is seen mostly when the things like the microwave is on or the large refrigerator is on. My mini fridge doesn't seem to have an effect on it. So we need a solution, We've thought about employing a wi-fi extender. However that effects the security level of the network. So my next option of which I really don't agree with is to buy another router and set it up as an adhoc (access point). The help would be greatly appreciated!
