comment Best but cheap way to provide internet to a multi-let student house?
Hehe, well I've asked them all if they download movies, or use a lot of iplayer and youtube, and they say no. Could be a closet torrenter amongst them I guess! I'd be happy if anyone can recommend a router to try.

Thanks Sirex. The router in the basement is wireless G, but the 1st floor access point is wireless N, so supposedly more bandwidth? Reception is pretty good everywhere in the building, and the 2 routers are on non overlapping channels. City centre = neighbouring wifi though, possible inteference there :(

Thanks for the help Paul. As far as I'm aware, its just basic browsing occuring. But I suppose if you add in that each student has a mobile phone on wifi too, this could add to the number of connections? As far as I'm aware there is no peer to peer activity though. I think I will replace the BT router and the access point 1st, and if the problem persists, install a 2nd ADSL line so I can separate the traffic from the lower 2 and upper 2 floors entirely. One factor I cannot account for or control is inteference from nearby wifi, suppose this could be a factor too.
