Broadcast wifi 500 feet - what hardware?
I have the asus 520GU with DD-WRT as the current 'main' router. My intention would be to hook that thing up to a "high gain" antenna, point it towards the destination house. Then I just need to setup another 520 with DD WRT and turn it into a WAP correct?
Should I use different equipment for the router and WAP?
Given how far I'm trying to go, anyone have a recommendation on an antenna for the source side?
Do I absolutely need to use an outdoor antenna or is there an effective indoor one (that I could place near a window on the porch for instance)
Do I need to upgrade the antenna on the WAP side?
FWIW, I have a big ass HDTV antenna that I need to actually go and hookup outside.. it's a UHF/VHF one made by panasonic that was about $100.. This would be at the destination house.. not sure if I could also use that to pull in the signal?
