I am looking to set up a Piggyback Wireless network off of a friend I am sharing internet with. Basically here is what I want to do.

Cantenna - Linksys Wireless NIC - Computer - Linksys Wired NIC > Router WRT54G w/ Wireless network & Wired network.

I want to use his wireless signal as my internet connection and share it over my wireless connection. I have tried using some utilities to get the two routers to talk to each other but no luck. I think they might be too far apart. The Signal is about 50%, but can dip as low as 20%

I am running Windows XP Pro.

Thanks in advace,
Neilium

What are the distances involved, and could you conceivably run a CAT 5 cable between the routers?
