eliminating the CO-AX cable runs
My computer is in the basement, I want my 10 db antenna on the roof. Obviously a co-ax run of this length is not only expensive but the signal loss would make it worthless. I was thinking...how do all these people get antennaes on their roof? The best bet would be some sort of external receiver instead of a wireless PCI card. Can a D-Link router be made to work as a receiver? Much more cost effective to run network cable than RF cable. Are their external receivers?
One option would be to use something like DD-WRT, which turns your router into a REALLY cool piece of hardware, but voids warranties at the same time.
See if your D-Link is the one from the Supported Devices page.
Install DD-WRT, weatherproof your router, connect to dungeon... err I mean basement via CAT-5 cable, Enjoy!
