    nothing hu or did i not word it right

    in case it the 2ed

    i have my router on the other side of the house "comp room"
    my laptop says in the living room gets a good connection
    but if i go on to the other end of the house"bedroom area" its very weak.
    about to move a desk top to one of the kids room so i need a stronger connection

    so seeing how i am useing wireless "n" i didnt want to get the Wireless-G Range Expander
    if the laptop wireless n card can work as a repeater by setting it allow other network users to connect through this computers internet connection

    dose this work as a repeater/expander?

    I've never seen any function like that with a single wireless network adapter.
    In theory if you connected a 2nd wireless adapter to that computer, you could run ICS. But..ICS being very clunky, it's never something I ever setup.
