proskater123 Posted March 4, 2012 Share Posted March 4, 2012 So I have a customer that wants to get there Verizon MiFi into their steel poll barn. But when you walk into the steel building all wireless and reception drops to nothing. Outside of the building I have full reception and inside the building i lose all bars. So my solution would be to setup the MiFi in the house and rebroadcast it from the house to the steel poll barn and receive it via a wireless antenna and run it into the building via cat 5 cable then run it to where ever they want their office setup. My problem is I know nothing about wireless equipment. I assume I would need a directional antenna. I am guessing the poll barn is about 200 feet away from the house. the thing that is stumping me is with all the antennas is the dB. Is a higher number better or is a lower number and does that affect range. Is that all I need to worry about setting up this system? or is there more to it such as a certain type of router that the antenna is attached to. Would you do it a different way than what I am setting it up? The price rang for this entire project would be preferably under 200 but being around it isn't so bad either. I'd love to hear everyone's ideas and opinions. i have thrown out the idea of running a cat 5 cable the length of the buildings but they prefer wireless. Other internet providers are not an option at their location. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
