Wired LAN to Wired LAN connection via WIRELESS

Greetings,

I am trying to figure out how to connect a NAS and a PC to each other. The PC is on one side of the house and the NAS unit is on the other in a secured room. In the secured room I have no LAN jacks or drops, I can get wireless in there, but the NAS unit does not natively support Wireless. Also, my wireless router in the house seems to randomly drop packets and connections so I don’t want to use it for transferring files.

What I want to do is connect some sort of device to the NAS via the Ethernet port that will then connect to another identical device on the other side of the house that is also connected to the PC via Ethernet port. These two devices will then create a secure  wireless connection – almost like a cross over cable would do if I ran one between the two devices.

Any thoughts – please see my drawing.
Thanks

This is one of the options you may have.

This will require two wireless routers.

Buy a set of these:  http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833122504

There are less expensive versions, but they operate at lower speeds.   These work very well and will easily outperform any wireless solution in both speed and reliability.

In that case, you need to make sure they are on the same electrical circuit.

They don't need to be on the same circuit -- only on the same primary transformer.    As long as they're in the same house, and the house doesn't have two main panels, it'll work fine.

... and in fact there's a simple adapter you can get to take care of the case where there are two main panels.

@garycase

I'm not so savvy on electrical stuff so "YES", you are right.

I was just thinking out loud thinking it should be on the same network (circuit in this case).

Thanks for clarifying.

Have a good weekend, guys!!!

If you want to stick with wireless as the original post said, I recommend one of these
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833320155R
EA-N66 (refurbished)... they come setup to work as client bridges, so all you need to do is plug into it with your computer to configure+save the wireless passphrase, then connect its ethernet port to the NAS and it should be good to go.
