Just to state the obvious...I'm a member of Central (not the obvious part).
If you put the wireless router on the second floor balcony near the center
of the balcony, I would think that it would provide the largest dispersal of
signal. "They" always tell you to put the router as high as possible and the
center of the balcony would be high and it would be central (no pun).

If this has already been addressed, then my apologies, but I just figured
I'd mention it...
