A friend has a Belkin 54g wireless router. The manual for this router claims "circular coverage of 250 feet or more". The router is located on a ground floor of a 2-story house and needs to stay there because of the wired connections in that area (cable + wired PCs).
Their ex lives next door, which is roughly 300 feet across a small valley. In other words, there are no hills between the two houses.
It would be nice if they could share the same internet connection.
I have another friend who lives at a marina, and they say they are able to access a wireless signal by the use of a REPEATER.
I know nothing about repeaters. Does anyone have experience with them. I'm looking for all pertinent info: cost, range, recommended brands, ect.
The wireless router is curerently located on the OPPOSITE side of the house from the ex's house. I'm thinking if they put a repeater upstaris, nearest the ex's house, or even out on the porch, over-looking the small valley, that the ex might be able to receive a signal there.
Both houses have notebooks which support the 54g protocol.
