Hi
Is it possible to extend wireless range?

Perhaps using directional aerials.
I live in Thailand so it has to be home-makeable.

Thanx in advance

I know with Airport Extreme, you can buy Airport Express units and place them to extend the range. I've actually done this.

also, even though Apple says the Express will only extend a network coming from an Extreme, I've read reviews of people using the Express to successfully extend networks without using an Airport Extreme at all. Can't say I've personally tried it though.
