Amped Wireless high power routers - GOOD stuff!

http://www.kubuntuforums.net – I wanted to beam wifi across the street and down three doors for my 82 year old mother who feels she would like to begin using a tablet computer. There was no sense in signing her up for cable broadband. She just won't use it enough. I tried my local brick and mortar store, who gave me some D-Link and Linksys units to try. No joy. Signal did not carry anywhere near far enough. It seems that typical routers have 50 to 100 mW of power (though it is often difficult to find out for sure as these specs are seldom printed). My web search turned up a line of high power routers and wifi repeate (HowTos)
