Hi there,

I'm trying to connect to my school network. Their transmitter is about 300 feet away, so my G5's antenna won't pick it up.

I bought a Dr. Bott directional antenna and have it pointed at the transmitter, but I'm still not getting anything.

I could probably get a better signal if I had the antenna aiming out a window down the hall, but then its cable won't reach the computer.

So... Could I get an AirPort base station, stick it near the window with the antenna, and then connect to the base station from the G5? Or, to put it another way, can the AxBS pick up and repeat a third-party signal?

Thanks very much if you can help in any way!
