Currently, I have my room of "tech" on one side of the house. On the opposite side....is where the internet router is. It's placed there because it offers the most convenience to all devices in the house, as well as when we have company over. Fortunately, I have an long ethernet cable that's connected to my desktop computer to the router. This at least let's me do a lot of stuff online that I normally couldn't do. But, I'm looking to connect many of my other devices, like my Wii U, and being on the other side of the house, the WiFi signal is weak. What I've done for the time being is had my laptop connected with the ethernet cable, and used as a virtual router for my Wii U and such when the signal from my actual router goes unstable from the distance, but I've been thinking of getting a WiFi USB module, and having my desktop computer act as the virtual router, since I use that everyday. The main thing I'm concerned about is stability, as sometimes, my laptop (4 years old) when used has had a slight tendency to just cut off the signal, and even with my Wii U right next to it, I feel like I'm experiencing lag. I don't know if it's just because of the way the WiFi was used, or if it's my laptop. Anyways, because of this, I also thought about an ethernet hub, but that would only benefit a few devices, like my Wii U (via adapter). I'm undecided about what I want to get. Getting both, imo, is not really an option right now. One offers a benefit to a range of devices, assuming the virtual router method is stable, while the other would benefit fewer, but would appear to not have the same possible problems. Should I go virtual router via WiFi USB module, or ethernet hub? I mainly game with my desktop and Wii U, with the occasional 3DS, but I've been doing a decent amount of 3DS homebrew, and having my router so far away from my workstation prevent a good connection for testing my implementations.
