I client of mine lives at a small airport. Their homes are metal airplane hangars on either side of the runway. The airport has wifi on a large antenna. Outside, you can pick up the wifi, no problem, but inside the metal hangars, you can't pick it up. He has a high gain antenna installed on the roof and ran the cable down to the wireless adaptor in his desktop and it works great.
Now, however, we wants to make it so that more than one computer in his home can use the internet connection. In addition, he wants wireless access in his home for laptops and such.
I'm not sure of the best way to do this. It think I could put a wireless access point in Access Point Client mode and attach the external antenna to it and then attach a wireless router to the ethernet port on the access point. But I'm not sure how well that will work.
I thought about a wireless extender/repeater as well. If I found one with two antennas, could I detatch one and hook up the external antenna and leave the other for wireless inside the building?
What's the best way to do this?
Would love to hear what exact make and model of hardware you would use.
