Is there a combined bluetooth/wifi miniPCI card?

Is there a combined bluetooth/802.11g miniPCI card that will work as a replacement for the Intel PRO 2100 in my Centrino laptop? It would need to support WPA as well, I suppose. Googling seems to show that such things exist, but I couldn't find any at Amazon or my normal online hardware shops. [more inside]

WiFi repeater or extender?

WiFi Repeater - how feasible is this? I am affiliated with a university that offers free wireless internet access. I live less than .2 miles from the nearest building which broadcasts this signal. I can't connect to this network from home, obviously, but I would like to. Is it possible to access such a network by putting an antenna on my roof? How about by placing a repeater in a friends house closer to the source? What are my options likely to be here? [more inside]

Sharing wireless internet access wirelessly

My sister lives in a small town in NH that started offering free wireless access in the center of town. I'd like for her to be able to connect to the internet from her house, which is about .5 miles away from the antenna but with tall buildings (church steeples) in between. She has a desktop, her husband has a Centrino-equipped laptop, and I visit with a 802.11-able laptop. My brother-and-law and I are thinking of building a cantenna or the like and mounting it on the roof . But what do we attach the antenna to? All the routers/"access points" I've looked at so far assume a cable (ethernet) connection as input signal which is then output as wireless or ethernet or both. But we want to both receive and dispense wireless. I know there are "repeaters" that can do this but all the affordable ones I've studied only output using proprietary protocols, not 802.11(g), which would require buying proprietary equipment for all the computers in question. Any inexpensive solutions?

How to tell someone they've got an insecure wifi network?

I'm going on a fairly long business trip, and my only broadband access at the hotel will be a wireless connection. I bought a wireless broadband card for my laptop today, and wanted to install and test it before I headed off, figuring I'd be able to hook it up to my wired network at home for updates, and bring it down to the local cafe to check the wireless part out. However, when I plugged it in at home, I discovered a wide-open wifi network named 'Wireless', with the default root password still on the router, and just a single Apple MAC attached to it. I strongly suspect this is not intentional, but just a non-savvy user setting it up, and they have no idea what they've left themselves open to. I figure this is somewhat the equivalent of noticing a neighbor left their door unlocked, unintentionally. How do I go about letting them know what the situation is, ideally in an anonymous fashion? I'd like for them to be able to know about it and fix it, but I don't want to get roped into being their support person for perpetuity - I've already got enough of that with my family and friends). Any ideas?
