You'll need routers which support WDS (wireless distribution systems).
Most internet providers frown on service being cost-shared by different addresses -- presumably lost revenue, but they may claim security issues.
I live in a horseshoe shaped apartment complex, and am one of the few apartments on the first floor. Everyone across from me and on the second floor has 3 or 4 unsecured wireless networks in which they can connect to (I have none, unfortunately).
My question, basically, is: Is it possible to buy some kind of router-esque device that could be physically located in one of the 2nd floor apartments and shoot these signals down strong enough to my apartment, so that I could connect to the internet via these unsecured wireless networks?
I know this is theoretically doable if someone were actually paying for the internet, though I don't know how powerful routers are, or how expensive. But it seems that what I'm asking must be possible, even if it's not offered to the consumer market.
As for my other option of paying for internet, my neighbor who lives directly above me is interested in splitting the cost. So, my other question is: Does anyone know if a router that would cover this distance be easy, problematic, ect.? Would it be expensive?
Thanks in advance.
