A novelty question here;
We have a house in a German village and we want internet there.
Line rental plus BB would be about £500 a year, and we only spend around 2 months a year over there.
Luckily we have a possible solution - my wife persuaded the neighbours to let us use their wifi (we will pay them a contribution), but don't want any cable link. I don't want to disturb the old couple any further after they gave us their wifi password.
Our kids are very happy, but the wifi can only be 'seen' weakly from one upstairs bedroom. I want to pick it up, transfer it about 20m down to our living room and retransmit as stronger wifi.
A wifi repeater will just give us a stronger wifi in the upstairs room, because the house is very solidly built with concrete.
I looked at external wifi antennae, but they appear to pick up the signal and send it down a usb cable, for a max distance of 5-10m, and can only be plugged into a computer directly.
Something like a wifi booster with an Ethernet output, which can be taken elsewhere an plugged into an access point would do it - does anyone know if such a thing exists or works?
