Wi-Fi
This is more a general question for all the experts. I'm moving out to a farm area in the near future. It's a pretty big house with huge walls (some with wood walls / some with concrete walls). So I'm looking at which Wi-Fi I should get. Any general tips? What providers I should look at? Any help would be awesome.

A lot depends on who you have for options. If you have cable service for television, they will be your best bet for internet. If there is no cable and you have a land line, there may be DSL service but the distance from a wire center is not that far. You need to be within a mile or 2. Last option is internet thru a satellite dish. I think HughesNet may be your only other option. As for the signal in the house, you provider will recommend their equipment for best performance.. It’s best to place the router as close to the center of the house so there are no dead spots. The more floors and walls the signal has to pass through the weaker it gets. If this get to be an issue there are wi-fi signal boosters you can buy that plug into an outlet and use the wiring in the house to boost the signal.

    Of course, cable operator is the best option for you, if they provide internet services, and hope so, If not, you may call an expert to make all arranges for you either by landline/satellite connection, However the chance to get the second one is less.
