for USA, Canada and countries running a 60 Hz supply service.No, the electrical code stipulates that conductor sizes #3 and smaller can not be paralleled. Conductor sizes #2 and larger can be paralled.

You can, if you want to burn the house down 30 minutes after the range kicks on.

As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician to advise what work is needed.

Before you do any work yourself,

on electrical circuits, equipment or appliances,

always use a test meter to ensure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized.

IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY SURE YOU CAN DO THIS JOB

SAFELY AND COMPETENTLY

REFER THIS WORK TO QUALIFIED PROFESSIONALS.

In order to extend your network range without cables you can do many different things. One way is you can install the DD-WRT firmware to your router. This can increase your Wi-Fi router's range by a few meters or more.
