Default Help w/this idea of wifi grid antenna

THis is pic of what I would like to do. I have the items...just need to hook it up.

My question is this. If I run Cat 5 cable from pictured Linksys router to house, can I use a Linksys Router in the HOUSE and connect the cat 5 cable to it and not have to use cables in house to pick up internet?

Or would it be better to run Cat 5 cable to spliter in house to each computer used in different rooms.

thanks in advance

1) The gizmo in the Tupperware box is?????????????

An AP? A wireless router? A wireless router with third party firmware set up as a wireless bridge, or a wireless bridge? ( First two answers bad, Last two answers good )

2) Sun will eat up that Tupperware. I like mailboxes, or 50 caliber ammo cans.

3) That antenna is set up for horizontal polarization. good thing if the other end is set up that way, bad if it is vertical like most antennas.

If the Linksys in the box is a wireless router with third party firmware set up as a wireless bridge, or a wireless bridge, you can run the CAT5 to the WAN port of a wireless router and have wireless internet access.

Default What kind of 3rd party firmware?

If the Linksys in the box is a wireless router with third party firmware set up as a wireless bridge, or a wireless bridge, you can run the CAT5 to the WAN port of a wireless router and have wireless internet access.


I did not like the idea of the tupperware container either, so that will change, BUT what 3rd party firm ware and where can one find such? This router is Linksys WRT54g model.

And should I have same router on the other end in house?

Version 1 through 4 are the best ones to modify.
