I setup a wireless connection between my house and the barn. The bard is about 100 yards from the house. I have two computers both running Windows 7. I am using at a NetGear WNR3500L Router and a wireless pci adapter in the barn and attached a Hawking HA12W HiGain Directional 12dBi Window Antenna to it. I will go 4 or 5 days with no problem and then I will lose my connection. Are there settings in the router I can change to make the connection more reliable? Is there something else I should be looking at that will help?
