I have a problem. Friend of mine manages a motel with "wireless access in every room". Problem is that they have wireless access in about 5 rooms, and the other 40 rooms, not so much. The company the motel owner hired to set it up came and installed the hardware, plugged it in, connected from the lobby, and pronounced it done. They never came back, they wouldn't answer calls, and they are now OoB (wonder why...). It looks to me like they have a DSL line coming in via a Draytec Vigor2500 ADSL modem/router. (Provided by the Telco) That is hard wired to a zcomax XG-2500 wireless router (Alpha). Down the hall in each direction is a box that contains a fairly plain IC board with what looks like a wireless PCMCIA card attached to it. Each is attached to a 2 foot external antenna. (Bravo & Charlie). You can connect to Alpha from the lobby and for about 3 rooms down the hall in each direction. You can get a strong signal from Bravo & Charlie in their respective ends of the hall, but never connect. I notice that the IC board in those (repeater?) boxes have a RJ-45 LAN port on them with nothing connected to it. I have no documentation, no software, and in fact, I had to use my dremel to cut my way into the "Bravo" box because the screws holding the lid on had the heads stripped out of them, possibly on purpose. Is my first step to make a long ethernet cable and hard wire Bravo to Alpha and see if it starts working?
