    So when i go home for the summer/spring, i am building an apartment in the garage of my house, and i want to get internet out there. I have a wireless router that will be in the house, however i have a Macbook pro, a desktop, and a xbox 360. So what i'm asking is if there is such thing as a base station that will get the wireless signal from the house, and let me plug wired devices like the xbox and desktop into it so i don't have to get wireless cards for the two, as well as slow down the network.

    Any router in the house, otherwise you either want a wireless bridge, or something like an Airport Express (wireless N) might have enough range to do what you want...
