    mitter/repeater, caPC act as a WIFI transn this be done?

    Hello there;
    I'm trying to make my PC act as a WIFI transmitter/repeater, can this be done?

    I have WIFI on my router but it's not covering the whole house, so I'm thinking maybe my PC could repeat the signal.
    can this be done?

    I think there is a dedicated linux distro for this which allows a PC to act as a wireless repeater. Can't say I've ever heard of anyone doing what you want

    What I've had to do is use 3 wireless routers (using WDS) to cover my entire house + garden (yard for US folk!) - old thick walls make for poor coverage. That is far easier I think and allows for seamless coverage without worrying about what is turned on/off.
