Enabling a router to pick up remote WiFi
and share it as a local hotspot

Your WiFi router is a hotspot that shares the boardband from your Internet Service Provider (ISP). The cable that runs from the wall socket to your router could either be an ADSL phone cable or a fibre cable, depending on the Internet access speed of subscription.

Types of Broadband input to your router
ADSL < 20 Mbps
Fibre > 20 Mbps
Router WiFi Access NO, mostly

Some routers are capable of supporting 802.11ac and 802.11n standards while most of the others are on 802.11n. However, the speed of Internet access has nothing to do with these standards because the bottleneck is at the broadband wall socket. You may find a bit faster in exchanging files between two devices within a router network over 802.11ac, but not so when accessing the outside world (commonly known as a cloud these days) because it is confined by the speed of your ADSL or Fibre broadband.

Many users have come to us for solutions of setting up a hotspot in their barns or properties nearby by pulling in the WiFi from their houses.

Solution 1 - for a solo computer

You could use the 2200mW USB-Yagi TurboTenna to pull in the WiFi from the house. This high power antenna has a pretty good signal reception through obstructions (except a metallic structure which has a shielding effect for wireless signals). This directional antenna is connected to the USB port of a Windows computer using the 2 meters USB cable supplied in the kit.

Solution 2 - setting up a local hotspot if you have a spare wireless router

In addition to the 2200mW USB-Yagi TurboTenna, the high power Wireless Access Bridge is needed as well. It was designed to drive 35dBm RF power into the antenna for pulling in the WiFi from the house and providing a broadband connection to your spare 802.11n or 802.11ac router.

The benefit of this solution is that you could setup a wireless network name and password in the barn or property nearby different from that of the house, so that the computers and gadgets of these two locations are not able to see each other. This increases the level of security particularly you are sharing WiFi access with some guests in another property.
