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.

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.
