I have a situation where 2 buildings with a wireless network setup, need help with getting the signal from the router building over to the second building which only has 1 wireless computer.
In building 1 we have a Sonicwall TZ205W (with 2 removable antennas)
Building 2 has a single desktop computer with a USB wireless NIC
The two buildings are about 75 feet apart. The Sonicwall is located in a office opposite from the wall facing building 2. (it is about 25 feet from the Sonicwall and the exterior wall facing building 2 and there are 3 walls for the signal to pass through.)
I have a range extender located in Building 2 in a room closest to the wall facing building 1.
I was thinking about hooking a Directional wireless antenna to one of the antenna outlets of the Sonicwall and pointing it toward the computer in building 2.
Any suggestions on the best way to boost the signal in building 2?
