I am in the process of setting up my network. I want to take an old laptop and turn it into wireless repeater (forgive me but this may not be the proper term). Basically I have my wireless router SSID(NETGEAR63) and I want to connect my laptop to this network via “NETGEAR63” and use the laptop’s ethernet port to connect to a switch to connect all my remote media… TV, game console, etc.
My research has lead me to an understanding that the Atheros chipset is the way to go. I came across this product I just wanted to confirm that I can do what I described with this usb wireless adapter.
