Being an avid newsgroup reader, I decided to see if there was a group dedicated to wireless - and I found you guys.
Just a quick question. I've read numerous articles concerning building your own cantenna and really don't want to go through the trouble if this commercial product is any good.
2) They don't work worth a crap and the dealers are trying to unload their stock on eBay.
My purpose is to extend my wireless access from my commercial metal building to approx. 250 feet to my daughter's house. She wants to take some online classes. I'm reasonably sure I would have to mount the antenna outside. The current AP works well in the building (only1 wall - rest of building is open), but the signal quickly dies outside the building.
There is a road between the house and the building, thereby preventing pulling Cat5. I have extended my access to my home by running cable from the building to the barn where I installed a "switch" (which boosts the signal) and then from the barn to my house to another "switch". From the switch in my house I have several systems hard wired plus an AP for roaming the house with my laptop.
