Wi-Fi repeating software

Link to this post 14 Oct 09

Is there any program designed for repeating a wi-fi signal and controlling the bandwidth allowed to be taken up by the AP. I would prefer an app that would be able to work with dual wi-fi NIC or a standard wired and wireless NIC (which is like my current set up), or if possible on that can utilize a single wi-fi NIC.

I found a guide to setting up a wifi repeater on http://archive.atomicmpc.com.au/forums.asp?s=2&c=16&t=4705, however I don't know about controlling the bandwidth through a repeater. You could also setup a dual-nic system with one nic connected to your network and setup the second nic to be a new AP and enable QOS on the AP nice. After a Quick search I found http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_router_or_firewall_distributions which shown distros that are made to be setup are routers, one of them also has QOS support.

Seems like most distros on that list are meant for headless set up, I'm more of wanting one for use inside of a Linux distro as needed with full GUI.
