Wireless between two buildings almost done but need help
Posted on 2009-05-05
I have two buildings. 220 feet apart. I have a Linksys WRT310N in the main building in the server room which is in middle of building. I have added a Linksys Range G Extender to one of the corner offices "almost" directly facing the other building.
In the other building call it the garage, I have a Dell Desktop with a Edimax EW-7128G PCI Card installed in it. I also purchased a "TRENDnet TEW AI86DB indoor directional antenna".
With either antenna, I received anywhere from 13-20% signal or 1 bar depending on if I am using the Edimax wireless configuration tool or Microsoft zero wireless configuration.
I can see the Wireless Network in the Main Building but cannot connect.
We only need the Dell computer in the Garage to be able to connect to the Internet to do some light emailing and research on net.
Any help would be apprciated, please do keep in mind I would like to try and use what we have allready purchased..so connector type's should match the edimax card antenna output.
