#57 Send/recive signals


I was wondering if i could receive a signal through one
antena and send through a nother. So I would be
receving my local hot spot then sending it out in my
home. I'm not too famlliar with any of this.

    it's generally refered to as a repeater or range extender,
    and while I am not sure if our little router can be hacked
    into doing this (likely can, as it can do mesh and has
    independant antenna control), you may be better off looking
    for a product designed to do what you want.

    As an aside, combining a repeater with one yagi (directional
    antenna) aimed at your hot spot, and one omni has been known
    to work well.

    Kepp in mind though that you then don't have control over
    the service, and as always play nice when using other
    peoples systems!

    does the wrt54g actually have 2 wifi cards?

    the wrt has only 1 wifi card.
    So you would need 1 repeater or 2 linksys.
