Home WiFi repeater question


My son lives in a small village in lincolnshire where they have communal broadband WiFi. The question I have is is it possible to have a repeater in the sons house so that the signal from the communal network (which has a tree in the way) could be accessed from a slightly different location and then sent to his home network on a different frequency to the communal network, if it is possible how would we go about it.

Yes. What wireless standard is the communal network?

There are products like this for 802.11g for example..

Would something like this work for a service like BT Openzone? I have a BT openzone account, but can only get the signal from my balcony in the flat. For a few reasons, I'm not intending to get broadband at home for a few weeks, maybe longer, so it would be really useful to extent the BT Openzone signal into the flat. Are their cheaper options, e.g. involving a cable/antenae etc.
