Ok, I used to play w/ wifi and computers and all that a LOT about 5 years ago, so i konw this is easily done, I have just forgotten all the terms. If someone could tell me WHAt i need to do to solve this (use key words) I can easily figure out HOW on my own.
I have WIFI in my house, WEP secured coming off a Verizon modem/router unit. When I work in the garage streaming pandora on my phone over WIFI, it tends to drop out from time to time, and the dumb phone doesn't auto continue, so its a pita to have to wash my hands just to wake it up. If i had a solid connection, I would be fine! router is in the attic, and can't be moved. I have my old WRT54g router with, uhhh, that other firmware on it. openWRT? DDRT? I flashed that maybe 8 years ago it feels like. How can I make this thing simply act as a repeater for my network to get recepetion in the garage? I assume the settings will be pretty obvious, playing with that thing was always amazingly easy compared to the factory firmware.
I can either spend 3 hours on wikipedia re-learning all the key terms of networking, or I can let you guys name em and just learn the ones I need!
later I'll start a complicated thread on getting my PS3 media server to play nice w/ my droid, the forum is written in smart ppl talk.
