I have an Antminer S3 which is currently connected via Ethernet since I can't get its wifi to work without having to buy an antenna and drill into the case to attach it.  However, I'm in the process of getting my router upgraded, and I'm thinking of keeping my older router and using it in Client mode to connect to my new (main) router via Wifi and then attaching the Antminer to my old router.  This sounds like it'll work in theory but has anyone ever tried this setup in practice?  I would like to be able to run my Antminer anywhere in my house without having to have a bunch of cables lying around.

It should work just fine that way. I hope you have dirt cheap power if you are running equipment that old tho!

Stop buying industrial miners, running them at home, and then complaining about the noise.

I pay a flat $35/mo (USD) for up to 1000 kWH of power a month and have the option to choose a new plan (which is priced at about $29/mo for 1000 kHW) when my contract expires in 2 months.  1000 kWH is fine for my apartment, especially since it's winter and my antminer dubs as a heater.  I may need to ration my use during the summer though (since I live in Texas and my AC will need to work extra hard to remove the heat.)  But I'm a casual miner anyways so I don't mine like my life depended on it.
