Thanks for thinking about this, Philippe.  I was hoping to avoid a complete 
redo of all devices hooked to to wifi due to time constraints.  I stumbled into 
a brand new relatively inexpensive Mesh extender.

$49 bucks or so at B&H --more than 3 times the cost of the N300 gizmo but no 
need to worry about 2 separate logins.   I think my current modem/router is 
past its sell -by date. I don't know much about the optical connection 
business.  I suspect the setup will be more complicated than it looks for a 
non-network savy person.    I determined after a bit of research that debugging 
my Vera controller wifi issues would burn hours--tech support had it all done 
in 40 minutes and knew all the usual culprit complications.  I was  correct in 
my assessment.  I don't know how they make any money on such devices that are 
so finicky to get set up in a stable fashion given the tech support time 
burned.
