    Lightbulb Turn an old android into a WiFi repeater?

    Idea: I have an old HTC Evo I'd like to use as a repeater.

    Meaning it will connect to my router, and re-broadcast a wifi signal, thus extending the range of the router's wifi.

    If anyone knows if this can be done let me know how.

    Thanks

    I can't think of any way to do this. The phone can connect to a WiFi AP, or it can serve as a WiFi AP (via a tethering app), but I don't think it's capable of doing both at the same time.
