Pineapple As A Repeater

Recommended Posts

Can I use the pineapple as a Wi-Fi repeater?

I live in the sticks with no FIOS, cable, or DSL. I use a Novatel MiFi 2200 with Sprint for internet access. The Mi-Fi will only accept 5 concurrent Wi-Fi connections but I have seven PC's that need internet access. Can I setup the Pineapple to use the Novatel Wi-Fi as its internet source and have the seven PC's connect to the Pineapple?

You can do this with a normal router. Do not need a pineapple to do this. it would take a reflash of just DDwrt on the pineapple. You'd be better off buying a router that you can connect to your Mi-Fi and have your computers connect to the router instead of your Mi-Fi.

That way only one device will be on the Mi-Fi and you can have many through it.
