Hi guys, I have a friend who's kind enough to let me use his wifi (I'm his next door neighbour) to surf the net and play games with him via the radio link.
Only problem is the signal is low and he can't move the router closer to my house (There's currently trees and a wall in the line of sight).
So I thought I could buy a repeater and stick that in the window facing my house.
I'm curious though - he has a wireless G router, can I buy a wireless N repeater, and have the repeater recieve wireless G and retransmit wireless N to have a better coverage? Or will it only repeat wireless G?
Either way, with just a tree thinly blocking line of sight (with the repeater) will it make packets less likely to drop out? To justify buying a repeater?
Thanks heaps guys :)
