Get a Linksys WRT router and flash the DD-WRT v.24 firmware in it.
DD-WRT is a linux-based firmware that gives more options and features to the user. My friend suggested I should get this firmware when I was getting problems with my Linksys -- I have not used it. He has and he likes it and it works the way it should.

Give it a try?
p.s. fixed my router problems by flashing the newest release of the Linksys firmware.
Our small community has wireless internet for the residents. The system is in its beginnings and my location only gets a weak signal. Further enhancements are planned for the system, but I would like to be able to take advantage of the service now. I have accumulated a Linksys WAP11 access point, a 12 dbi outdoor omnidirectional antenna, a 10? mast and 20? of coax. I would like to set the Linksys WAP11 up as a repeater for the community wireless signal. Is this possible? My other option would be to use a wireless card with an external antenna jack but my laptop would then be ?wired? to the antenna coax.
Any advice, suggestions and/or instructions would be greatly appreciated!
