    Hey guys, I suppose this really isn't Mac related, but for a couple of years, my AT&T service as well as the wi-fi service at my house has been pretty bad. After reading the article on the front page about Sprint supposedly installing some sort of "repeaters" in Apple stores to boost signal strengths, I was wondering if it's possible to buy and install one for my home? My home is about 5,500 sq. ft. (I think that there are different ranges for certain devices like these?). If it is possible, do any of you have any recommendations for me? Thanks in advance!

    For the home wifi component, simply buy another base station and extend the network. Done. As for the cellular component, go to AT&T and see if they have these micro-cell units (if AT&T is your carrier). This should fix things.
