Unusual Wireless setup
Posted on 2009-04-16
I need to set up a Wireless connection from the library/office of a very old house, through a window, to reach the guest cottage on the back of the property (about 75 feet).
The exterior walls of the house are over a foot thick and 'lead-lined'.
The existing Modem, and Smart Switch sit near a clear pane window that has line of sight to the cottage. I need to beam the connection through that window to the laptops that are in the cottage.
I have set up several wireless networks before, but only basic 'plug wireless router into modem' and configure the security.
All of the computers in the library (all XP) plug into a smart switch and I would like to just plug the Access Point into the same switch and beam the signal through that window.
Please correct any assumptions/terminology I am using and give me specific equipment recommendations for the best way to do this.
I have searched EE for a solution that fits, but haven't found what I need.
