Hi I am trying to help out a friend set up wireless internet to travel a distance of around 100-120m through a house,through a hedge and into his place. His parents live in a house and that is where the wireless router is sitting,then there is a hedge around 50m away from his barn and then his place is around 50-70m from that. Hes turned his barn into a flat type thing and has no phone line. We picked up a cheap RTA 1025w Dynalink wireless router and I dont think this is any good as I think i need an outside antenna and i cant do that with the rta 1025w. How can I make the signal travel this distance? Do I need a new router that can do an outside antenna? He is not going to have a computer at his barn either its more or less just for xbox 360 online gaming. I have read about access points but outdoor ones seem extremely expensive. Any Help People would be awesome.

You can get a Belkin wireless extender or you can get a couple of Meraki devices as repeaters.

Meraki make some nice kit but by the time you import it to NZ and pay the freight and customs charges, it is going to be pretty expensive.

Here is a link to a company in Christchurch who can supply what you want and much more:

I have ordered some stuff from them and the service was extremely quick with reasonable prices.

Cheers,
Grant.

You only need two Meraki for this distance, and at US$150 each you will be well under the GST and custom duties.
