yes. You can load the outdoor router software on the AP (Orinoco) and set it
to repeater mode.

Subject: set up wireless card as a repeater?


I have this interesting situation at my new apartment. I'm able to receive
my school's wireless network in a room closest to the nearest school
building, but not in the rest of the house.
Is there a way I could setup a linux station with a normal wireless card
(e.g orinoco) in the room and sorta acts like a repeater to provide
wireless access to the rest of the house?

Any comments on this matter is appreciated.
