    Just incase that was a dig, I didn't mean to but in. I get in the habbit of responding to questions even if they weren't asked of me, since lots of people never respond (though 'lots of people apearantly does not include you).

    It's alright just didn't pick everything up like my regular one does, so I ended up doing it 2 times...it was a gift, I gave it a try, not up to my standards...and to use it...you have to pick all the wires up off your floor....HAH like that happens more than once a year!

    Get a regular router with no wireless built in $75 and then buy a small switch $50 and a wireless access point $100. That's 3 devices to get the network backbone up. You will have a switch for wired connections and a WAP for wireless connections. You router will then assign IP's and also route the Internet.

    Then get Wireless client cards for each wireless connection and ethernet cards for the hardwired connections.

    With this setup, you can always change just the WAP and change the format from say G to anything they change in the future.

    You can also just spend 125 buks and get the all in one Wireless router/switch/wap but I don't like all in 1 devices and my way you can reposition the wap anywhere you need as long as you run a ethernet line.

    Yes a huge antenna will help.
    If you get one on both ends it will be better.

    What was wrong with the Roomba vac?

    O that sucks that it eats wires.

    But, try to keep the wires hidden anyways. Much cleaner installs. Like Home, Like Car!

    If your client doesn't work with different types of equiptment, that to me is a sign it's a POS. I have no trouble with the orinoco (or a belkin and netgear, for that matter) connecting to linksys, netgear, orinoco, or apple access points. This is a list only of APs i regularly use, but i suspect I wouldn't have problems with other manufacturers.
