6 thousand square feet with one router?
OK so this is what I have to do. I have to set up an unsecured wireless network that will cover at least 6000 square feet (4 thousand downstairs and 2 thousand upstairs). All of this has to be done without running cat5 except to the first router right beside the modem (on the first floor).
Now onto the bigger problem. I know nothing about wireless networks. Can this even be done? I just looked into what might sound right to me but am totally confused.
I guess what I need would be a router and some access points. Don't access points still need to be connected back to the router via cat5? I also heard about wireless bridging but got totally lost there.
I just spent an hour on the linksys site and came out more confused than when I went in.
Could someone please assist me? Just remember, I cannot use cat5 at all.

The information you have provided is not very useful:
65 feet square aircraft hangar?
40 X 100 foot warehouse stuffed floor to ceiling with steel bar stock?
4 X 1000 feet spaghetti warehouse?
You may want a mesh network. Not for the faint hearted.
Let me know what more you need.
It is just a big house that has been transformed into a bed and breakfast sort of deal. On top of that, the way they have their wireless network now is 4 linksys wrt54g routers with the dd-wrt firmware to allow them to do what they do. They want the whole area to be a nice and healthy hotspot.
The signal strength is not good and I was looking for a solution for that. If you have any more questions, just let me know what you need.
