I love it when the internet seems to magically anticipate your needs and provides the info you desire. Such was the case today when, just last night, I thought I needed to finally break down and figure out how to seriously boost the wi-fi range in our house (which is too unreliable on the other end of the house, non-existent in the basement). Via Steve Roberts and Facebook came a link to this how-to on Lifehacker. Kevin Purdy shows you how to configure an old router to act as a wi-fi repeater via the magic of DD-WRT. Hey, I have an old Linksys router… [Thanks, Steve!]
