  1. is there a way to reverse a router? i have a linksys wireless router-G 2.4Ghz, and currently to get a signal we have to move the computers to one corner of the room, against one wall. Is there a way I could set up my router to pick up the signal and route it out further? like via ethernet or wirelessly?

    wifi works both way... its just an illusion that makes it look one way (after all, how can you surf the net if you can only recieve data and not send any?)

    Its probably more easier to move the router physicaly to a better location (high up = better line of sight, more central location in the house, move objects that may be causing interferance with the router eg cd towers, other radio/transmitters, walls etc) since i believe your problem is a distance related one..

    However, if you're asking about wifi repeaters, thats a different story.
