Wireless Range Extender???
I have a Internet connect, connect to a Belkin wireless router and a friend 2 doors from me would like to connect to it. Would the Belkin F5D7132 ( Wireless G Universal Range Extender/Access Point) be able to connect the LAN port to another router to give 3 other computer Internet access?
Personally, Id buy a repeater with a removable antenna, that way. if the signal isn't getting there good enough, you can add a high gain antenna onto it. But your extender should work, depending on how far away he is and how many walls/objects there are between your AP and his computers.
You can also print this out and use it on your repeater's antenna to somewhat focus the signal towards your friends direction:
Ez-10 Corner Reflector Templat
Sure its free, and may not perform as good as a store bought directional antenna, but its always good to explore the less costly options first
