    Amp it up a little more and you can remotely charge your Model S

    Use DD-WRT to increase your output power. (FYI DD-WRT is a free wireless router firmware.)

    If it's a recent Airport Extreme, then one of the little Airport Expresses can be set up in slave mode pretty easily, and that can extend the range. Latency's a little higher due to the relay, but not bad. Slave mode doesn't work across brands, though - it's a lax part of the standard (I've got two expresses to do cheap-bastard whole-house audio w/ Airfoil - I was disappointed I couldn't get slave mode working with the NetGear router, but the router is solid as a rock, so I'm not trading out without a good reason).

    As for the Model S, I would not allow it onto a non-guest network - most higher end routers allow for a guest network mode and isolate that traffic off the LAN.

    I'm curious if you can't use other wireless networks to update. I mean do you HAVE to update at your house?

    Why not do it at starbucks, panera bread, or McDonalds, or park close to an AT&T store after hours ? Yeah, it's kind of crappy in terms of signal strength, but it's a work around

    Or if you really want to be fancy add like 5 repeaters and tweak the settings for your router, you'll be broadcasting pretty far. You really don't need speed or care about latency. I tried it with a few repeaters and was getting wireless networks from 1000 ft away

    Only slightly OT, I heard a piece on NPR a while back talking to a librarian, who noted that one strange side-effect of the recession was a noticeable population of people sitting in their cars parked near the library using the library's WiFi from their notebooks/iPads. Free bandwidth!

    Internet's not worth very much if you have no device to access it.

    Delivery question

    If you choose to have the car delivered to your house, what is the process? Do they just drop the car off? Or will there be some type of process? When you pick up at a location they go over everything with you and the car is detailed.

    They'll deliver the car wherever you want from what I understand (home, work, hotel on vacation...etc). They're supposed to spend time with you going over the car and walking you through things. Very different than the Roadster. Someone dropped the car off, had you sign some paperwork then took off. I think people will like the delivery process.
