    Hi Guys! I Am Looking For A Software That Can Take The Wifi Signal And Make It Possible To Plug A Router Into My Computer. Pretty Much Rebroadcasting A Wifi Signal. I Would The Program Be Linux But Windows Will Work Fine To.
    Thanks! -Tyler Hartman

    You don't any additional software. Just enable IP forwarding via sysctl, plug the router and change the router's dhcp settlings to advertise the Linux box as the default gateway.

    EDIT: You should also setup iptables to output packets from the 'router' interface to the 'wireless' interface
