I currently have a 2Wire wireless-G 802.11g router (Model: 2701HG-B), but my PS3 is about 40-50 feet away from it and separated by 3 walls, so I only get about 37% signal strength. Not only that, but I am constantly getting booted from the PlayStation Network, but not the internet itself. I am bombarded by so many error messages that I can’t pin down the exact problem.
All of this leads me to thinking I may need a new router. I was thinking a wireless-N, but I don’t know too much about this type of thing so I’m unsure if “N” would even work. I do have a CAT-5 cable run through my attic for when I used my PS2 online, but that is Cat-5 and the holes lead to different rooms.
tl;dr: Should I use an old CAT-5 and go through the hassle of setting it up, or should I get a new router; is so, wireless N or G?
Bonus points for specific models of routers and what-not.
