The wireless repeater could operate at the 1 watt of transmit power allowed
(by the FCC in the United States), instead of the reduced transmit power of
the laptops (60 milliwatts?).
If the networking speed of the laptops is capped at 2 Mbps, the wireless
repeaters should operate at the highest data transfer rates possible.
First units of the wireless repeaters will probably use the "g" WiFi standard,
but the "n" standard would be better in the future because of the higher
speeds, greater range, and use of both the 2.4 Ghz and the 5 Ghz bands.
