Here goes, my town has city wide free wifi but I live on the on the north end of town and can only get a signal in the living room and not in my office. Well my wife has her laptop in the living room, is there anyway to repeat the signal from her computer out to mine and to my Bold? Both laptops have Vista and are Dell's.

Two options: Look for a Wi-Fi router that will act as a "range extender".

Leave a computer on in the living room and use connection sharing to share the Wi-Fi with the wired network. This leave your BB out of luck, and needs Cat-5 cables.

2a: As above but connect the wired connection to a Wi-Fi router. Essentially a kludgy range extender.
