I am after some help with 2 things:
1. The correct terms
2. How to do it
What I want to do is use a spare DSL modem (I have a couple to choose from) to connect to my existing LAN (Unifi based) and use the LAN ports on the modem to connect devices that live in the garage, without having to run LAN cables out there.
I cannot remember the correct terminology, is this a wireless bridge? I am not looking at a extender and I have tried Powerline devices without too much luck (I even wrote a paper on doing that for one of my post-grad courses if anyone is interested).
So can I do what I want? This what I want to do ( ~~~ is the wireless signal):
LAN -> Unifi ~~~~~~ (spare modem) -> lab servers connected via Ethernet
I have a Thomson TG858 and a Technicolor TG589v2, as well as a Huawei HG630b.
