That all means "if something which isn't true, was true, then something that was impossible would be possible", padded out with a lot of physics-sounding woo-woo.

    And yet if Einstein hadn't thought about what would happen if you could catch up to a beam of light (which is impossible) then we wouldn't have General Relativity theory.

    The original past said:

    "The 802.11 standard provides several distinct radio frequency ranges for use in Wi-FI communications: 900 MHz 2.4 GHz, 3.6 GHz, 4.9 GHz, 5 GHz, 5.9 GHz and 60 GHz bands and  most WiFi router list two frequencies, usually 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz" this being said  can one pickup Wi-Fi from 20 miles away maybe only in the low frequency's?

    It was never intended for 802.11 devices be use for a distance of miles.The intent was to provide a reliable and easy way to send high speed data over a distance under about  100 meters, or about 300 feet.
    Some recent changes in the rules will allow longer range,but with some limitations. These changes are to other commercial or unlicensed services

    Short answer: Never20 miles!  :o
