I am hoping someone will take pity on me & help me out as I do not really know what I need or if is even possible.
I would like some more information/help, or to be pointed in the right direction of help to do the following:
I would like to extend the broadband from within the house to an office in an outbuilding. I know this can be done, in fact it already is but not in a reliable way. Currently the broadband comes up into the office wireless by using an edimax extender( or repeater, I'm not really sure what it is, sorry). But the connection is never guaranteed, constantly drops out and on the whole is useless.
What I would like to do is use cable (cat5 cable from what I have already read) from the router (I assume it gets plugged in just as the Ethernet cable would?) in the house, which would then go through some underground pipework (route pre planned when the outbuilding was converted) and up to the office - a distance of 50-60m approx. Assuming I am OK so far ( please tell me if I am not), what equipment do I need in the office to attach the cat5 cable to? Ideally, or rather necessarily, the broadband in the office needs to then become wireless so that 2+ laptops plus occasional tablet/phone can use the WiFi. Is this possible? Cost is not a major issue - well, obviously best value for money is always the best bit it is more important to get a decent and reliable connection than it is to do it cheaply if that makes sense.
If there is anything else you need to know please let me know. There is power in the office (but different system to the house).
Sorry if I sound dumb, but I have found some info online which always starts out promising but then goes very technical on me! If anyone has some time to help me I appreciate it very much, or alternatively please point me in the right direction so I can find answers for myself.
