To give a little background info I live at a trailer park, and the park has recently decided to change our cable provider. Subsequently I now have a new internet provider, but my internet is about 3x slower than it formally was. Now I have recently came up with the idea that I could use antennas and signal amplifiers to access Wi-Fi hotspots that would normally be impossible to reach from my house. My Idea is to get a GPS and mark a way point at the hotspot in question, later to use that data to help point my antenna. Then connect said antenna to a Alfa wireless adapter
. I read in a forum
that with the right antenna that it is possible to connect to wi-fi hotspots up to .5 miles away, which is pretty impressive. I want to take that adapter and connect to an old desktop of mine and hopefully connect my wireless router to that pc, through it's lan connection, and re-route the wi-fi in my house.
That being said I have a few questions 1) do you think this could possibly work 2) any information about antenna that would be required would be very useful I know very little about antennas/radios, but any info about the type of antenna I would need would be great. I'm gonna need a really high gain one, I know. I'm hoping there are any options>18db? 3)How could I hook up a wireless router to a computer so that I can route the internet that computer has access to wirelessly thought my house.
I know this is a complicated post and I apologize ,but any answers to any of the questions above would be a huge help
