Default networking

alright well does anyone know any good wireless network extenders?

im thinking about starting a wireless network at my house and i was wondering if anyone would know about any products that i could put a distance from the actual access point (so that it doesnt need to be connected to the access point itself) and it would extend my network

sry for all the redundence but i wanted to make sure you knew what i was talking about and thanks for any help

What you are looking for is called a Wireless Range Extender. Here is an example of one of the many available.
