Router for wireless network
« on: June 23, 2008, 11:12:35 AM »
I'm trying to build a wireless network with a very wide range-over 100 feet. I have no clue to where I need to start. I have already a computer connected to a cable modem and a laptop with a wireless card. What else do I need?

Get an open source router like a Linksys WRT54GL, then follow this guide: http://lifehacker.com/software/router/hack-attack-turn-your-60-router-into-a-600-router-178132.php

I haven't tried this out myself yet, although I hope to do it soon.

most routers reach well over 100 feet

Theres also range extenders, not sure how previously mentioned hacking will work, but ive seen it mentioned relatively often.
