Default Computer Gurus

My shop is 300 feet from my house. What is the best cost effective way to get WIFI to the shop?

Thanks, Rod

Rod,
My shop is 300 ft from the house and this is what I have. It works great and is a protected network. The extender is in the shop, and connects to the house wireless wifi.

Does your shop have windows? My shop is a metal building no windows.

I posted this same question on another forum and one response was to look at wireless bridge. I found one on amazon for $59 dollars shipped. It says it will extend wifi up to 2k. It will be here Tuesday. I will post how it works.
Thanks, Rod

Rod,

I'd REALLY like to know how it works for you. My shop is 150' from the house and I tried the range extender and it didn't work. Never thought of having the extender located in the shop as previously posted.

When I talked with the BB geeks they advised to locate in the house - returned the extender

Eric

Here's another option to consider - CCrane makes a few different WiFi range-extender products and this looks like it would be perfect for a detached garage/shop, especially if you want to be able to stream Warren Evans' www.dragracer.tv programs.

I've got the FiOS WiFi router and although it works better than just the old extender, it still leaves "dead spots" in the yard.
