I recently upgraded my netgear router to a more powerful linksys router to extend my network range, and i also bought a cantenna hi gain antenna, but it still isn't getting a sufficient signal. Now i relize that i should have bought an access point in the first place, but i dont want to spend anymore money. So my question is, can i use my old netgear wireless router as an access point? Basically put it between my house and the other house and rely the signal wireless, (cant be corded). If not then i will just got out and by an access point but im just checking my options. Thanks.
