The SlingLinks will allow you to connect the Slingbox to the router if both devices are in different rooms or far away from each other. However, you must make sure that both rooms go into the same electrical circuit, otherwise, the SlingLinks will not talk to each other.
These links will provide you with all the information about the SlingLinks and how they work.
just getting started and have not purchased anything yet. I need to send an internet signal from my basement where the cable modem/ internet access is to a remote room above my gagarge (My wireless router does not reach that far). i also want to send the internet signal in the room above the garage to both my wireless modem( which is an Apple Airport Extreme and thus has four eithernet "sends") and my Netflix box. The modem in the basement is already connected to a wireless router which serves the rest of the house nicely. So I am trying to create essentially a second wireless network from one source in the basement. I am a little confused as to what I actually need. Do I have the following correct:
1. I need a Slinglink Turbo 1 box in the basement. I send the internet signal from the cable modem to the slingLink Turbo 1 box.
2. I need a Slinglink Turbo1 ( or 4) box in the room above the garage. connect this to the outlet. Connect the Slinglink box to a Slingbox in #3.
3. A slingbox to receive the the Slinglink Turbo 1 or 4 signal
4. connect the Slingbox to a wireless modem such as the Airport extreme
5. Connect the Airport Extreme to the Netflix box via ethernet
( question also would be do I really need a Slinglink Turbo 4 or can I just use the Turbo 1 with the Airport Extreme being used with the additional ethernet "sends")
any response or help is appreciated;
