    I cant get DSL at my apartment but my neighbors can. I built a cantenna and have been running off someone elses wifi that lives at least 300 yards away, probably more. Well the signal is very weak and sometimes non existent. I was wondering if they make a better wifi card, i know they have mimo out there but does that work if they other person doesn't have a mimo router? Well any advice on how to get a better signal? :sadwavey:
