    1. Yes


    3.don't know

    4.how far the signal is pushed, lower it to save battery

    5. Set up a Bluetooth network for PC/ laptops with Bluetooth but no wifi
  3. 3. Channel: 1 theoretically goes further than 11 because of it's lower wavelength. However you should check out what channel the AP's in the area are on and use the least used channel for best results.

    1. WEP usually works the password must be 8 character no more no less for some reason (Barnacle wifi)
    2. Yes the name that is shown when you scan for networks
    3. If to many people use the same channel you well have interruptions or problems.
    4. Sounds like some dbz thing >.>
    5. Send data though Bluetooth instead of wifi

    I use easy tether since my PS3 can't see ad hoc networks and it works nice :)
