I'm an 89 old man who lives in an assisted living facility who is too cheap to pay for an Internet connection like normal people. Happily, our chief administrator wasn't too cheap to provide a wi-fi hot spot in our library located in our community for users. I love it not only because it's free, but that it works great. If you can imagine a wagon wheel with three spokes radiating from the hub, my apartment is at the end of the outer concrete block wing some 200 feet away. What I need, if there is such a thing, is a device that can capture a signal 200 feet away and deliver it to the USB port on my Macbook which dances to the OS X 10.5.8 tune. If such a contrivance exists, I wont be too cheap to buy it. Surely some kid of fifty or sixty or even a juvenile of forty, knows about this stuff and is willing to share such knowledge with me.
