Hey - I'm not at all knowledgable on computers but we'll see how this goes.

I am setting up a wireless system for my parents in their business - we currently have an office with 3 networked computers and I am trying to add a fourth one up in our private house - this is behind the office and up bank of 2 or 3 metres.

We have a wireless router in the office so we can connect our laptops in and around the office - and I was hoping to use this as a connection point for the new computer in the house.

However the new computer only intermittantly receives this wireless signal from the office - mainly due to the fact the office is a solid concrete structure, and the 3m bank.

Will installing a wirelss bridge work - if so does it run form the wireless router or is it a separate wireless network?

What other ways are there of connecting this new computer to the office wirelessly?

Would appreciate any suggestions.

Use two EnGenius EOC-3220s (see link below) in bridge mode, one on top of office, one at the house and pointing at each other, uses seperate 802.11g channel to current network.
