As this problem relates to Apple products I thought I'd try here...
I've already posted on the Apple support forums without success.
I have a very strange wi-fi problem. I have an existing wireless network that works well and covers most of the house. One room I use in particular is a dead spot so I recently bought a range extender to fill the gap. It is an extension, beyond the original solid brick exterior wall.
Set up and configured the extender and all is well with my MBP and Airbook. They both get 100% signal strength and connect flawlessly in what was the dead zone.
However, my iPad and iPhone will not connect to the extender. They can 'see' it but the signal strength is so weak they will not connect. Tried all the usual resets, forget networks, reconfigure etc. to no avail. As soon as I move in range of the main router a connection is made.
I'm perplexed. Anyone any thoughts?
