Linksys Hardware
WAPPOE12 - injects power into ethernet cable in case there is no outlet near where you want to capture signal.
WRT54G, WRT54GS, WRT54GL or WRTSL54GS - wireless router.

Load router with DD-WRT v24 SP2 firmware (www.dd-wrt.com), set to AP Client mode.
Be aware 3rd party firmware technically voids its warranty, so a used router of the type listed above will be fine.

Run cable from WRT* router to where you want to use it.

If you have a power receptacle within 2m of where you mount the router, you don't really need the PoE converter (they run about $41 on amazon with free shipping - I don't recommend buying them from auction sites, as many of those are missing parts, and you'll *need* the tap that converts to 12VDC and takes the place of the router's wallwart... if using a device built to use PoE, it would pick up the power straight from the cat5 itself).

The answer in comment # 24810904
is still relevant... I would add WRT160NL to the list of DD-WRT compatible routers to seek (it's one of the few 802.11n routers that take an external antenna - it has RP-SMA connectors, by the way), and the Linksys-specific POE adapter is about half the price now as it was then (e.g. http://amazon.com/dp/B00077IPC6 ), but otherwise the solution is still totally valid.
