Hello all. I have been having some issues with connecting to a router, however the circumstances are not conventional by any means. I live in a two section house, my landlord lives in the back section. I live in the front. One of the agreements in the lease is that i am allowed to connect to his router for internet access, which is in his house section. Not mine. He is very reluctant to fix any internet problems i have though, and recently i have only been able to connect with my laptop when very close to the back wall. My desktop connects with only one bar recently and will not load any webpage more than a quarter of the way. Programs like Steam and Xfire will not connect to log on whatsoever. I asked him to take a look at the router but i highly doubt he has. My friends have suggested a wireless bridge, with which i am not too familiarized. Given the circumstances, It seems like i have a few options. 1.) Buy a second router, connect via ethernet cable to his modem, place the router in my home. 2.) Buy a wireless bridge to use and place in my home. 3.) Buy a Powerline Ethernet Adapter. 4.) Purchase my landlord a new expensive N router as opposed to his G router and ask him to open ports in the DMZ for my coputer's IP address. There are quite a few issues with each of these however. For option 1, it would require cutting holes in the wall since our sections of the house are not interconnected. and thats a big no on his part. For option two, The signal strength is so poor in this house section that i doubt it would work, but like i said, i am not too familiar with how wireless bridges work. Option three seems like a prime option, however i don't think our two house sections are connected through the same electrical circuit, since i pay a separate utilities including electricity. Option four, i don't believe would work because he would probably take it as a "screw you, im fixing this internet problem myself" kind of statement, the router would be on my tab so a loss of money when i eventually move out of here, and if he does take it as an insult he could very well tell me to get my own internet plan and change his router password on me. Paying for my own internet is completely out of the question. I don't make enough in order to afford the monthly fee (i need a good connection since i game), let alone the activation and setup fees.wayyyyy too much money for my paycheck. im borderline broke with rent and utilities and gas. Any suggestions anyone?
