Wireless device


Short story.

Connect a lan segment via a device wireless suggestion.

Long story.

My old neighbor is running out of money so I thought I could let him leach off my internet. What I have is two houses about 600 feet apart, almost clear path but trees. I can almost get his current wifi on my phone so it isn't that difficult.

I wanted to know if anyone has tried devices to simply attach a lan segment to a different lan segment like building to building. Newegg has the engenious stuff that might work.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...17&ignorebbr=1 Maybe unless someone has some other device ideas.

Guess I could run a real wire down there but the deer would tear it up.

Or just try to get something like this to work? http://www.solidsignal.com/pview.asp?p=WCR-GN&ss=21322

Not really a linux question.


Thanks.

I use This

because of my shop being seperate from my house. My motorcycle shop is a 20x40 foot
all steel quonset type of building also and my wireless shop media center gets it's signal from
my house router. It aint cheap though.

Quote:
The High-Power Wireless-N 600mW Smart Repeater expands the range of any 802.11b/g/n wireless network by repeating the signal from a wireless router and redistributing it in a new "extended" location. The SR10000 is equipped with advanced dual 600mW amplifiers and 5dBi detachable high-gain antennas to extend Wi-Fi coverage by up to 10,000 square feet.
My dogs run loose through the fenced in parking lot between the shop and the house so a elevated
wire is too much hassle for me since I need the air space for trucks,trailers and such in the parking lot so wireless works for me.

I guess you might find something with the same range and specs for cheaper though if you try hard.

Thanks for the replies. I'll look at those suggested and see if I can borrow something to test.

I'll mark this as solved.
