I have a client with two barns. One they use as a house and the other they have an apt in the upstairs part. The house one has an N router in it and puts out a very strong wireless signal. The problem is that the apt in the second barn has a metal roof on it and no windows in the side facing the house. They apt has a Cisco G repeater but it wont pick up the N signal inside the apt.
My guess is that all the signal is bouncing off of the metal roof. The front of the apt is wood and a door with glass in it. I was thinking of maybe mounting a N repeater by the front door on the outside of the house so that the metal roof wouldlnt interfere with the signal and the computers inside the apt could pick up a wireless signal from the repeater through either the wooden wall or the glass in the front door.
Maybe i am way off base here so i would like some suggestions. The two buildings are about 50-75 yards apart. Both buildings share the same phone number so i cant install a second modem in the apt. I just need to get the wireless signal from the main house to the apt without having the metal roof stop it. TY in advance for your input.
