    Hello all,

    In order to be able to use my desktop pc on our neighbours wlan I have some
    questions.

    The PC is to far away from the signal which is only available in the living
    room. The PC is about 30 to 60 feet away from the living room. I want to
    acces this wlan in some way and the most intresting so me seemed this one:

    I buy a wlan router and 60ft UTP cable. Place the router in the living room
    and connect the pc using the utp cable. But I'm not sure wheter this will
    work or not, because to me it's unclear wheter the routers "input" has to be
    utp or if it is allowed to have wlan as an internet provider. I would think
    the router has to work both ways in either case so it should be no problem
    from that point of view. However I can imagine that routers don't
    communicate with eachother. Anyone any advice on this?

    Second thought:
    Use an USB wlan adapter and use up to 60ft usb extension cord. 60ft USB
    extension cord however seems quite a lot to me. On the other hand I've been
    "network gaming" with my neighbour a few years ago using about the same
    length regular serial cable. Does anyonbe have any advice on this? Or has
    anyone any experience with long ends of usb extension cable?
