So, my question is this. Can all the Wifi Access Points out there do meshing? How about just plain old briding. I remember Intel pushing pretty heavily that they were going to introduce some technology that would allow PC’s to act as repeaters for Wifi connected devices so you wouldn’t have to string AP’s everywhere? Of course, quite a while back they also said they were going to create a real-time executive that Windows or any OS would run on. They were going to use this for doing neat time-sensitive, cpu intense signal processing things like: being a soft modem or being your sound card.
Me. I just want to buy a Netgear or Linksys AP and then connect a few computers to it. I want the AP to automatically connect to my existing Wifi network and act as a bridge. See, my house is old, and running wires in the mud under the house is extremely difficult. The roof isn’t an option either, it is an old house built in the late 1940s. Wifi has been awesome.
So, do any APs do this? Is it a standard?
