I may still have a couple of cheap nasty $7 routers that support WDS around the place. If you put one in the house and one in the shed, it will make a bridge between them to pass whatetever.

I have visitors coming today so have to clean up for that, but I can have a look around tomorrow and if I still have them you can have them if you come to beach haven to get them.

If you have them, I'll be there - just say when is convenient to you. Thanks!

richms: ... nasty $7 routers that support WDS...


I would avoid WDS like the plague, my experience with it was that it was slow, and unstable as hell.   I ended up replacing it after many hours of stuffing around and it never working for more than a couple of days.

Thats strange. These 2 AP's worked for months as a bridge between house and shed before I got around to pulling a new cat6 thru the conduit. Even with the far end running as an AP as well it was still sweet as. Only single chain N but with it on 40MHz I was able to get close to 80Mbit thru it sometimes.

qyiet:  My plan is to use two of these http://www.gowifi.co.nz/ubiquiti-networks/ubiquiti-networks-radios/ubiquiti-nanobeam-nbe-5ac-19.html 


Just reporting back to let you know how this has gone.   Install and radio alignment was dead simple,  I can get ~155Mbps of real world data transfer through this link.
