    :?: Someone told me today that they heard that a wifi repeater can be reconfigured to work as a gsm cell phone repeater. Anyone know any truth to this and any links to info on it?

    1. how is this possible if repeater uses different frequencies,
    2. why you want a gsm repeater. you wouldn't (if even possible) get much distance.

    Must be an UL.

    GSM is operating on 900 MHz, 1800 MHz (Europe) and 1900 MHz (America). WLAN on 2400 MHz (b and g standard) or 5000 MHz (a standard).

    Even the difference from 1900 to 2400 MHz is far to big to use the same radio transmitter/receiver.

    You can go back to tell this person that told you this that he doesn't know what he is talking about.

    well ive heard you may tweak the frequency for the private channel, anyway the receiver need to tweak for the right freq as well.... so.. you may tweak for the GSM freq as well, but why? the coverage is not so good as GSM itself.

    Don't forget there is GSM 850MHz as well :wink:

    Some GSM phones (from Motorola, NEC, etc.) already have quad-band support.
