 I have main building with file server (192.168.1.x network) and I have 2nd building which is about 40 yards away from the window of the main building. The 2nd building has a few desktop computers on the 1st floor and a webcam device in the basement.
 I am looking for the best access point device that delivers the strongest signal to the 2nd building. (* Running Ethernet cable or fiber optic cable is the last resort).
 What method would you recommend?
 (1) Install Access point on the window of main building so that 2nd building computer/webcam devices can receive signal and IP address from the ACCESS point?
 (2) or install some type of Range Extender on the window of 2nd building?

 What method and product/model name would you recommend?
