Default How to set up a basic point to point wireless connection



I have a converted shipping container that is serving as a writer's
cabin located very close to my home. Shipping containers are metal
and will not allow any wireless signal to pass.

I have a Wireless G Access Point WAP 54G set up inside my house.

I am wondering if I can buy an external antenna and connect it to the
WAP 54G.
Then buy another antenna and mount it ontop of the container to
receive the signal.

I would like to have wireless inside the container.

How do I connect the receiving antenna (on the container) to a
wireless access point (or some device that will retransmit the signal
to be received by my computer).?

Please make any recommendations, including resources for me to look
into.

Thanks,
Arturo

Your access point's model name would appear to be a Linksys WAP54G.

An effective set up would be to use a Linksys WRT54G (under $60 from
Walmart) as you access point at your house and the Linksys WAP54G as the
remote unit at your shipping container configured as a bridge (think of a
bridge as a piece of ethernet cable). Mount both of the units in a plastic
box outdoors. Set both to channel one.

For the inside wireless, use another Linksys WRT54G as the "inside" access
point. Set it for a different channel like channel six. Connect the
ethernet cable from the WAP54G to one of the four LAN ports of the WRT54G,
NOT the WAN port (labeled "Internet" on the back of the WRT54G.

You'll need a wireless Ethernet client bridge that can use an external
antenna, LMR-400 cable, and the external antenna. I recommend
