Default Long Range WIFI

Does anyone know if it's possible to use an old satellite dish to increase the range of my wifi network? I want to use my laptop and Hookerton Park but I'm about 8 KM from it.

And pleare don't suggest the Cantenna; they should call it the Can't Tenna, because it's CAN'T do what I want it to.

Default Re: Long Range WIFI

yeah its possible, but your gonna need a nconnector and a pigtail cable. If you do..the most important is the nconnector, make sure it is compatible with your anetnna first. then you need a pigtail connector also...
