Turn Your Old Router into a Range-Boosting Wi-Fi Repeater
I spent WEEKS trying this and I never successfully accomplished it. I spent less time configuring a cantenna and Alfa USB WiFi cards than I did ramming my face into my wall repeatedly until I fell unconscious. Flagged @Philip Han: Any special security/network considerations that got in your way? @Kevin Purdy: Yes, a wall that I kept repeatedly ramming my face into until I fell unconscious after having multiple issues. Hahaha, I guess that the problems were: -Two differently branded routers -Two different OS's (I should of run DD-WRT on both) -AES/WPA2 Encryption.
