Can anyone expand on this? Yagi/asus wifi booster advanced
I am having a difficulty with my wireless range from my house to my boat which is on the lake about 2-300m from my house. If i can boost my connector on my laptop to pick up my wifi from my house i may be able to get some connection on the lake without having to pay extra for a dongle?
I have been reading on this stuff for two days now and ive decided my router in my house is a standard netgear wireless router WGR614 from virgin. I already have a spare asus WL-520GC router with removable antenna and a power adapter that lets me run normal 12v dc from the battery on the boat to power the lot. I was looking to buy just one yagi antenna perhaps a 25dbi one from ebay... seem cheap enough.
Now ive read loads and have found no real set up guide to get it running on the boat.
I am assuming i have to remove the antenna from the asus router and insert the yagi omnidirectional antenna.
Can i connect the asus router to scan for my home network connection using the asus router with the yagi connected to the antenna port then ethernet to my laptop, do i need to upgrade the firmware on my router or make any adjustments to the settings?
I guess all im asking is if i can just swap the antenna and then use the router to pick up my home network instead of this silly usb wifi dongle attached to a can that im currently using.
I can get connection with this but it fails and drops alot and really i have no intention of making my home network on a yagi as i have no need to share with everyone! and do not want any aerials on my house or have to mess with my virgin setup in any way. so my focus is on how i can boost my signal from my laptop to my home setup.
Can anyone help or identify any procedures i should take or extra parts i will need. Especially any help on configuring my router to pick up my home wifi signal instead of having to go through a seperate modem and another broadband connection?
Thanks in advance for your comments.
the solution is simple if your current router isn't able to get you the range, add antenna to it, see how to add antenna to wi-fi and if that still doesn't work then buy a very high quality wi fi device that works for real.
Life is like a coin. You can spend it any way you wish, but you only spend it once.
