    Nice build! I’ve run into similar issues with wifi range. My solution came from a company called enGenius. I’ve used both their mini-PCI (EMP-8602) and USB (EUB-362) solutions. They perform very well.

    It almost doesn’t matter if it even works–it looks so cool! Looks like something right out of a big-budget hacker movie :)

    Too bad the amplifier was pre canned. I though this was going to be someone who built a wi-fi amp.
