Here's my situation. On the same piece of property I live in one house (a guest house) and my father lives in the main house. The two houses are seperated by about 75 - 90 feet. My house has the DSL connection. I have just bought my fater an HP ZV6000 series laptop and want to be able to allow him to share my DSL. I will be setting up a wireless router in my house and need to know what the best way is for him to pick up my signal. My thought is to put an access point in his house. Here is the problem though. Our houses were built back in the 1940's when building constuction was top notch. We have solid 18 inch thick concrete wall and the room were his laptop will be also has a lot of glass. What I want to do is use an extended cable to router with an outdoor antenna but atennuation loss is drastic with cable from an antenna to router. Secondly, is it even possible to put an access point in his house without a network cable. Thirdly, while the router would be connected to the modem and a main tower PC in my house I also need to be able to have my laptop connect to the signal. So how do I get a directional antenna pointing towards his house and still have the routers antenna in my house pickup my laptop signal. I have been looking at Hawking Technologies because they have high db out door antennas. Does anyone have any suggestions on possible eqipment to use and how to configure it.
Thanks for any help that you can provide.
