I've just installed whole bunch of x10 lamp modules as well as appliance modules throughout the house. So far everything works fine (except the wall switch).

I was just wondering, currently, I have the computer interface plugs to an outlet, IR543 in the same room, as well as the module with an antenna (sorry forget what's called). The problem is if I'm in the basement, the signal is very weak, sometimes I have to click it a few times to get a response. Can I put that module with the antenna downstairs and still be able to receive all commands from the computer as well as the IR543 console?

If the above is not possible, can I buy another antenna module and place it in the basement? Does x10 have some sort of signal amplifier?

Thanks for the help.

First, the X-10 part number for the RF receiver is PAT01. It is a RF receiver that should receive a signal for 150 feet or better. It receives the signal that the handheld remotes send and also would receive signals from motion sensors and other X-10 RF devices. It in turn injects X-10 signals into your electrical system to be picked up by X-10 receivers (Note: it is also a receiver on either code 1 or 9). The PAT01 has no effect on what IR543 or computer is doing. As far as where you mount the PAT01, mount it where it will receive signals from anywhere in your home (usually center).
