Wireless switch recommendation

I have a device that sits outdoor that only has a CAT5 connection, it needs to be able to pick a wireless signal from 200Ft away. So I'm looking for a simple solution (wireless switch? point-to-point wireless connection) that will allow me to plug that unit to a RJ45 port

If I understand you properly you want to grab a wireless signal and put it back to a wired, the oposite of what wireless routers do. http://home.cisco.com/en-latam/products/rangeexpanders. I would use that device it's a range expander so it will not only boost your wireless signal but whereever you place it it gives you a single ethernet connection for wired devices.

Linksys RE1000 Wireless-N Range Expander

TunerML, yes, I'm looking for something like this, thank you. Any idea if SOnicwall makes those too? Our firewall is SOnicwaal NSA240

You can turn about any WRT54G* type router (and others) into an external wireless adapter connected via cat5e by installing DD-WRT on it and using AP Client mode.
