    Wifi Repeaters, Extenders, that kinda thing...

    I live in a Faraday Cage, (Steel Box) So getting anything radio to work is a pain..... I have managed to get a 4 station cordless phone setup to "Go" without constantly dropping calls or doing a "Max Headroom" style stutter..... But I'm having issues with a tablet (Blackberry) & keeping a connection..... Does anyone have any words to the wise ?

    My buddy has one of these, and they can work to deploy a strong WiFi network or pick up weak ones.

    Just a few weeks ago we attached a 12 dB gain, 2.4 Ghz antenna to it and threw it up in a tree at the park. Its powered over ethernet so we were able to use it from the car to sniff out wireless networks.

    We picked up and were able to use one of the local Meraki wifi mesh nodes from over a mile away. Wasn't even line of sight.

    As an access point they put out 1000 mW on their own, but are adjustable. One of these with a good antenna may be sufficient.
