Dead Spots? Use Your Cable Setup to Send Signals to Every Corner - New York Times: "One solution is the AuraGrid, which distributes the network signal over your TV cable system. (It does not work with satellite TV.) The $89.99 kit from AuraOne Systems, available at various online stores, includes a splitter you install where the cable enters your house, connectors to feed your wireless router or access point into the nearest cable jack, and antennas to rebroadcast the signal in three rooms. Additional antennas are $19.99 each. No tools or AC outlets are required."
