    I live in an apartment complex and my good friend lives one floor above me and a few to the right. Our apartment is all cement so its kinda had to get a connection to him. We're gunna get stronger antenna and move our routers as close as possible. He wants to stream movies from my network onto his new hdtv through his computer.

    We can just connect to my network with his wireless card but, is there a way to share our internet with eachother and some how load balance it? We both have 10mbit down and like 2 up but together we'd have a really fast connection! Any recomendations on how to go about doing this?

    you can share your internet, i believe it is called wireless bridging, not all routers support it.
    however, as for sharing two connections, i have no idea.

    -you can bridge two wireless connection
    -you can not load-balancde like you're talking
    -it's doubtful you'll get a connection strong enough to stream movies
