A wired home network boosts performance and resilience. These days, it is possible to install them cheaply, without having to run complex cabling through your home. Ethernet over power line technology enables you to use your existing electric system as a communications network for streaming home entertainment data.
Modern wireless networks offer the ultimate in mobility and performance for the home network. As more household users demand streaming high definition media, online gaming and large downloads from anywhere in the home, they can rely on high-speed, dual-band WiFi devices to take care of it. This opens up possibilities for unique wireless home entertainment and networking setups. My questions:

placed a wireless router (Brand X) upstairs in an open area between the bedrooms and the signal is nice and strong. But downstairs and in the backyard, the signal is weak.
