My local town now has a free wireless internet system which my friend can pick up and access easily outside his house, but the house has thick stone walls and there is no reception inside..

What is the best way of getting the excellent outside signal, inside the house?

    The best way is to bring a proper signal inside the house and then use wireless within the walls. It will not be free, however.  ... Thinkpads_User

    Can you out a wireless antenna or a repeater near a window where the attenuation would be less?
