Default Wireless

Hey guys. Someone asked me about increaseing the wireless range i guess. Basically its a apartment complex and they have a verizon wireless modem down in the basment and the apartment i think is 3 floors. So i want to be able to increase the range to everyone in the apartment so they can access the internet with there laptops. Any ideas how to this?

Most consumer stores have extender solutions or you can set up mutiple access points to which users can roam, I can type a guide if you want. option 2 you can use any router for.

I have seen those a few times InfectionZero they are a great product as a matter of fact my dad has one in his house to get the signal from the 2nd floor to the basement and it can be seen as far as 8 houses down with 2 bars still which is really good!

Using multiple access points as a repeater is a best choice
