I am completely brainless with all wifi issues. Here is my situation.
I am setting up an aux office in an electrical substation. My office will be in a metal building. I am about 600 yards from a wifi source. There are many obstacles in the path. By placing a laptop in the window I can adequately pick up a signal.
However when place on a desk, no signal. Tried a cheap antenna and it gave me one bar. Can anyone please suggest an antenna or fix for my problem.
