My brother and I live on two parallel streets with 4 houses between us. We are technically 120m apart but through 4 houses. We tried to share my ADSL via wireless access point. We tried Belkin 54G F5D7130 and SMC 54G 2655W where both claim reaching a range of 1800ft (= 549m), regrettably both did not stand up to their claims!

Would you please advise on a possible solution or different worakble range extender/access point?

Cheers!

Vielen Dank Herr Kuhn,

I am partly aware of the Yagi/Grid/Panel/TV antenna solution, however; there is a further complication. One of the in-between houses is two-storey blocking line of sight! Furthermore, I know that the antennae must be accurately aligned in azimuth and elevation angles to allow for reception, which with this two storey house in between, we have no real hope.

Would you please advise and many thanks.
