This thread is in process, because I am slow at doing anything. Your 
comments are interesting.

This is a useful idea, which I think I understand. Let me check.
1.  Are you saying that really any wireless card has the same wireless 
bits as a conventional access point, and that if you use it 
appropriately it it can be an access point?
2.  If you set up a number of access points, you can set them all on 
different channels. That way, the receivers using the access points 
simply pick up the strongest channel they can find.
3.   If this is the case, what is the advantage of using a number of PCs 
rather than a number of different standard consumer AP's?
4.  Home-built antennae can help. Do you have any further info?

Thanks for you help.
