But the data goes both ways. I mean, at some point, the receiver’s antenna will have to emit data too. If the amplifier is only on the AP side, won’t there be a problem when the PC sends data not far enough?

Does it mean that, to be useful, the device should be applied both on the emitter and receiver’s antenna?

@Ramhound Wait, I’m afraid you are mistaken. The device I was talking about is not a repeater. I mean, it connects between the computer and the computer’s antenna.

@Ramhound my English is pretty bad but I could have figured that from their name. So the only difference is that the computer sees a higher signal power? Isn’t that completely useless? I thought the power of the signal was just a way to judge its quality (i.e. average number of errors) : if the quality is still poor then what is it good for?

Yet, it's confusing : being the owner of that directory here, prevents me from opening it. If it had been owned by anyone else, I would be able to open it.
