    Hi guys!

    I'm from Portugal (nice country) and would like to know what is the actual range (in meters) of an airport extreme base station 802.11n

    I live 500 meters from the University I go in and would like to use the university wireless signal but I'm not sure if I'll pick up the signal with the airport express base station where I live.

    Is there any way to increase the range of the AEBS? Like installing an external antenna?

    Thanks guys:)

    No, nothing close to that, unfortunately... spec calls for 160m on a very good day, outside, without no obstruction. For that kind of range, the signal your university broadcasts must also be 802.11n.
