    I need to amplify the signal of wireless internet. I heard about access points, but I don't really know what to look for. Something that will receive a wireless signal, then boost it back out. Any ideas for a cheap/quality way to do this? email is "[email protected]"

    access point/router/gateway/switches are all ways to tie multiple computers together to share files/internet.

    distance, walls/construcion, upstairs/downstairs, how strong the signal is, how many pc's/laptops, all play a part in how well it works as you're sharing the same bandwidth.

    i keep it to about 100 ft or less from the signal to the pc/laptop.

    Hawking Tech has a number of products that will help you increase your wireless range. The root page is Hawking Hi-Gain™ WiFi Range Extending Products.

    Some of the more interesting products are this Hawking [HSB2] Hi-Gain WiFi Signal Booster, which can be used on either end of a wireless connection to boost the signal power.

    Another way to increase your signal strength is by the use of hi-gain antennas. You can choose from omni-directional or directional models, here are a couple of examples.
