I'm a freshman at Tufts University hoping to graduate in 2015 with a double major in Computer Science and Cognitive and Brain Sciences. I've coded the most in Python, learning C++ this semester in my Introductory Computer Science course, and will be learning Javascript, XHTML, XML, and PHP next semester when I take Web Programming.

Thanks a lot for the useful information!! Why would using a USB wi-fi antennae not be sufficient?

comment Setting up a solar-powered ad-hoc network?
So just to be clear, if I were to get a bunch of small APs, I could set up this network? What would it look like to a computer, a wi-fi network?

That's a really good point I hadn't fully considered.

I'm sorry if this is elementary networking -- but don't APs rely on an existing internet connection, rather than simply connection computers together? If there was no internet available where you were, for instance, would your setup connect computers together?

How do I set an ad-hoc network for the repeater? Won't it just repeat the best signal?

I was thinking more along the lines of what Paul was saying below with a solar cell charging batteries which power the device, so they shouldn't go below a certain level ever until night -- though the concern about power is noted, thank you.
