how to extend connection range
i live in a flat on the sixth floor - Office is 200 metres away - Bought the belkin N1 router thinking could directly receive connection in office but it just doesnt go far enough
What is the best way to extend the connection range? What is the best way to receive the connection in the office (Desktop Pc) and best way to increase range of connection from home (shall i use a parabolic antenna or yagi?)
I put up something similar between home and a house about 200 meters away. I bought two access points (CNet Wireless-G Access Point 54 Mbps 802.11g, WPA/WPA2, WDS) and two directional antennas for each of them (CNet Directional Antenna 6dBi 2.4 GHz).
I spent some time figuring out how to set the whole thing up, but what I ended up with, worked quite well:
- The first access point is connected by wire to my router. It has a static IP address, and is set up with just WDS. WDS meens that it communicates only with the other access point (after configuring both of the access point with each other's MAC address)
- The other access point also has a static IP address, but is set up with both WDS and Access Point activated. I addition, WLAN security (WPA) is added. The main router is used to give out IP addresses (DHCP server)
Hope this helps...
