Hi All,

Sorry about a slightly off topic question…however…since there are a lot of smart people with various technical backgrounds on this forum I was hoping to get some (free) IT advice.

I have a DSL ADSL2+ modem with WIFI transmitter in the center of my house (Comtrend AR-5381U).

My steel hangar is about 50 feet away and there is cement and asphalt over the ground between the house and the hangar so to dig down and install a CAT 5 cable run out to the hangar is not a fun option.

Are there any WIFI extender options available to get WIFI out to the hangar?

I envision some kind DSL modem with a high powered WIFI router in the house and one of the router’s external WIFI antennas can be remote mounted on the outside eve of the house using a cable connection between the WIFI router and the remote mounted antenna and then another such WIFI antenna mounted on the outside of the steel hangar with a cable to a WIFI router (or extender) inside the hangar that rebroadcasts the WIFI signal in the hangar. There is only about 50 feet distance between the house wall and the hangar wall.

Is there such a contraption available? If so can you please recommend a make and model.

Any advice/suggestions/experience/ moments of silence/ positive energy dances would be most appreciated!!!

Again…sorry about the off topic question.
..

Cheers!!!

Bill Hunter

One possibility is a USB WiFi adapter along with an USB extension cable.
Put the adapter outside under the hangar eave.
They cost as little as $0.99 from China to over $100.00

Other people might have a better idea.
A water pipe could water blast its way under a concrete driveway, but not 50 feet.
