hey all,

 

I know this isn't about growing per say but it is kinda got to do with the ambiance while growing ? 

I'm having some problems with internet in the garage/shed. my problem is the router is like 50-60 meters away from the tent with 3 walls and a roller shutter in its way, and i can get nothing done while in the garage. I also have a camera i want to set up in the tent just so i can keep an eye on the girls when ever i feel like it, and Alexa is just no good to me with out interweb lol, has anyone got a good quick and cheap option that would get me around this conundrum.

Johnny.

you could try a external WIFI adapter with a removable antenna then add a yagi style antenna for better range   

Network Adaptor

Antenna

just choose these to show one that you could switch antennas on

Sativa to change the things I can, Indica to accept the things I can’t.

I needed the wifi adapter so I had a place to connect the antenna so i could receive the signal from the router  but if you have a place on the router to attach the antenna you could use it to send the signal out to the garage, the Yagi style antenna is directional so you can point it in the direction you need it.

If power in garage comes from same supply as your router, a pair of powerline extenders would work better...plug one in near router and plug router into it...plug the other in garage...job done 😉 and no drilling

some good advice there. So this is what I bought tp-link originally I purchased two but one was enough.  My whole property is lit up with security camera everywhere. They say up to 13km range but realistically 1km is quite reliable.  I have also installed these for various businesses like trailer parks/camp grounds etc ...

if you have trust worthy neighbours it is an easy way to split the cost of an internet service too.
