I am having a problem with my cable company. Well, they aren't mine, but they won't come to my house with internet. I live about 300-350 feet from my brother's house. My plan is to get cable to his house and then link to that via wifi. My problem is, I don't know what I need to get to make it happen. I need help. I can connect from the cable modem to something else, but what would I need to get? I don't think just any wifi router will work.
Currently I have a Belkin F7D5301 (I think it is a N150). From my house, I can stand near the window in his back bedroom and pick up this router (-92db) on my ipod. I want to spend less than $200 on this. less than $100 would be great.
You need to make sure your cable company allows this???
Most do not allow sharing unless it is a business class service.
It can be done for about 80.00 per side or less depending on
A) Line of sight
B) elevation of antennas
C) Knowledge to install and configure
I should clarify about his house. It is his house, but nobody lives in it. He insures it, etc, but lives elsewhere. I figure its sort of a grey area legally. I will pay for the internet, just not use it at that location. Line of sight is good, I can see directly to the back bedroom window. There is a small pine tree in the way, but I plan to remove it. As far as elevation, I think I am about 20'-30' above his house about 300' away. I have little knowledge. What would I need to purchase on the two ends? I assume a wifi router on his end to attach to the cable modem, but what on the other end? Can I get a USB dongle and put it in the window? How would I then get internet access to the rest of my house? Can I go out of my computer to my other router? Thanks, I really am a novice.
