I have just started Uni and at our end of the halls of residence we get no wireless signal unless we sit in our kitchen window when we can just about pick up the campus wireless momentarily. So we are limited to getting internet from our own bedrooms via ethernet ports which we are each provided one of.
Is there a way we can either rebroadcast that wireless signal at a half way point? Or can we plug a device into one of the ethernet ports which can then act as sort of a wireless access point type thing? As it would be awesome to be able to use our laptops/phones wirelessly again.
I have with me an ADSL Netgear DGN2000 which has quite a few capabilites. A Desktop PC with 1 Ethernet port. And several laptops with Wireless/Ethernet Ports.
Hopefully the above makes sense, any ideas?
