My internet cable enters my house downstairs only. It is connected to to the cable modem, which connected to our wireless router (Link sys e1200), which in turn is connected to the first WD Livewire.
The second Livewire is upstairs connected to a Slingbox and a Directv-TiVo.
We have a WD TV Live and a Roku as well as laptops, tablets and phones which connect wirelessly.
Though everything works with this setup, it would by MUCH better to have the wireless router upstairs closer to all our devices. I’ve tried changing the setup by connecting the modem directly to the downstairs Livewire and connecting our wireless router to the upstairs Livewire, but could not get it to work, went back to the original setup with it downstairs and everything worked again. I tried a second time with the same result.
So my question is: How can I use the Livewires to bring my wireless router from downstairs to upstairs so that all our devices can be much closer to our router?
