Wireless Internet Range Extender
« on: 22 November, 2015, 03:54:24 PM »
I'm looking for options to extend the range of my wireless Internet.
( Australian NBN )(Fibre to the door) 12Mbps

It needs to reach another building approximately 75mtrs away from the router.

I've been told a point to point system ( transmitter & receiver ) is the way to go.

I've never needed to extend the range previously.  I'm not sure what I need or what to look for. Any positive suggestions would be appreciated.

Would something like this do the job? or would need something more powerful? http://www.jaycar.com.au/IT-Products/Networking/Wireless-Hardware-%26-Accessories/High-Power-Wireless-Outdoor-Router-Range-Extender-802-11n/p/YN8330

Ubiquiti (ubnt) Nanostations are what you want, dont buy that jaycar crap.

If you want one big blanket wifi area around the complex you can use the Unifi AP-LR, You can wirelessly uplink them aswell

i put (what I linked) into a motel the other day.. pisses over your mere 75M range, althou the access point is up an aerial pole on top of a 2 story building... these are powered over the ethernet cable, so dont need a power point. but do need a POE (power over ethernet) switch, which are 4/5th of fu(k all.. also you can link off the access point to another one if you need to extend further.
