I had old Linksys Wireless G WRT54G V4 router that still gives me an acceptable performance for my wireless connected laptop ( around 17-18 Mbps with Comcast cable). However, my new smart TV that is 2 levels down in my house keeps loading the stream videos all the time. I just had very bad experience with new Netgear N300 WNR3500Lv2 wireless router that gave me good speed with wired computer, however, wireless laptop that was only 6 feet away could get only up to 2 Mbps, and so called technical support could not do anything. I've returned that router back for refund. I am very suspicious if any modern high performance routers like this E3200 would give me the same problems related to very slow wireless speeds. Should I try again buying a high performance router that has capability to deliver strong wireless signal throughout my house? Please advise.

It was not complicated at all. My wireless router is on the second floor, TV on main. I used the Amped High Power Wireless-N 600mW Range Extender Smart Repeater. Plugged into wall and synced with wireless router on second floor in minutes. Pretty easy and effective. Not sure what I paid at Amazon, but no cables were required. You may even be able to wire the repeater to the TV if your signal from the basement is clean enough.
