Access Wifi Signal 1/2 Mile Away!!! Tags: Wireless Networking Product Last response: August 19, 2011 12:11 AM in Wireless Networking Share classicrocker978 August 18, 2011 11:56:57 PM I need to get internet out to my shop computers. The shop is about 1/2 mile away form my house and there is a clear line of sight. I plan on using either a biquad or yagi antenna of some sort. Can I use something like this? http://www.ebay.com/itm/400124157346?ssPageName=STRK:ME... (I think this would eliminate the need for a router? Also since this is all USB and comes with software designed around it, it should be fairly easy to setup.) Or Would I be better off getting a wrt54g flashed with dd-wrt to act as a repeater? (Would this setup be faster/more stable?) More about : access wifi signal mile classicrocker978 August 19, 2011 12:11:53 AM I'm also open to biquad antennas, parabolic dishes and Yagi antennas. Either using a usb connection or router with dd-wrt. I really dont care how I do it as long as I can get a good reliable signal in my shop which is 1/2 mile away from my home wifi (clear line of sight) What would the easiest fastest solution be? m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
