Wi-Fi between 2 outdoor buildings


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

I'm looking to get a wi-fi link between the main house and an out building about 50 metres away.

Regular wi-fi routers aren't strong enough and homeplugs are unable to connect as the two buildings have two separate feeds.

Therefore, I'm thinking a 'line-of-sight' connection?

Has anyone done this before and can anyone recommend products to use? The only complication is there's a conifer hedge between the two buildings aswell, so have that to contend with.

Therefore, open to recommendations? smile

Thanks.

Edited to add - Ethernet cable isn't an option due to various obstacles.

How about a 50 metre ethernet cable?

Lease a single transponder on a satellite ... and bounce your signal through that!

Or use external Cat5e/Cat6 - £25 for the cable, £10 for RJ45 sockets at each end, plug in a hub at the remote end and you will have Gbit connectivity and a WAP.

Have just installed similar here ...

Just responded to the other post, that cable isn't an option unfortunately.

MHC is being just a little facetious.

A lot of money!


If you cannot use a wired connection you are stuck as getting WiFi to work reliably over 50metres with a conifer hedge in the way with be difficult unless you can get a pair of repeater in the hedge which will require power and that will need cable. Even a directional high gain antenna is unlikely to provide a reliable link.

your own personal buildings or for a business?

Is latency still an issue with these links or have improvements been made?
