    I did read the post.... It's just bad. The problem isn't picking up the signal, radios could do it in the 40's...It's the point putting it out. Your best bet in the middle of nowhere is the super expensive ev-do or edge service....

    Don't forget that the wireless signal from the router has to be pretty strong. Most signals could barley make it out of the house and across the street.

    well only a month or so of doing this and im still new. i AM online with my wii at my house, a big step forward since i had no CLUE how to go wireless a month ago. but i want it online at my friends house...........from what i can see, antenna's and repeaters require you have a pc. he still does not have cable tv much less a pc.

    there has GOT to be a way to pick up those access points near by and re-broadcast them. or like i said, some kind of powerful antenna that may plug into the wii.

    think of it, those of us who cant afford high speed and routers...........we would be able to go online without it. i personally spent a FORTUNE and many man hours getting my wii online.

    even say a 3 mile distance would be great...........i have dozens of free access points within a mile of my home, but my wii antenna just dont have the power.

    plus think of this........PORTABLE wii online. take the wii and antenna to a friends house.........if he cant go online, NO PROBLEM.

    wii owners need to push for this........not that hard of a piece of technology to develope and put out...........and the thing would sell out QUICK.

    let me know what you think..............my friend code can be seen to your left, let me know in your reply if you added me and ill do the same.

    i said it once, ill say it again.........FREE PORTABLE WIFI FOR ALL!!!

    how hard was it to connect to the internet?? im a complete noob w/ computers (and by that, i mean reallllllly nooob) but i do have a wireless router, would it be easy/hard for me to connect to ther internet if i just followed the user manual?

    I have an alternative to the OP and anyone interested. Get a WRT54G and install the 3rd party firmware to turn it into a bridge.

    I did this exact same thing years ago to connect my PS2 and Tivo to my neighbors wireless that lived quite a ways down the street.

    If you are interested I suggest HyperWRT + Thibor http://www.linksysinfo.org/forums/fo...play.php?f=135

    if you already have a high speed connection connected to a router through an ethernet cable, your already there almost.............just a few steps away. i have SYMPATHY for anyone trying to get online desperately.

    im still very new to the forums, but if you can, try to pvt msg me and ill see about helping.

    An attachment that can pick up from a mile?

    Heck, you're better off just getting a plain old wireless G router.

    'Cause goodness knows how much it would cost.
    That turtle has a brief case. It must be going to work. I hope it has a good day.

    Pelican is not an WiFi company, you should really consult some of the companies that specialise in hi-gain outdoor antenna:


    Try this one:
