    Repeating WiFi into metal building

    I spoke with the airport manager yesterday, he actually already has a set of nanostation M2's to get across the runway to a second AP over there. So I picked up a loco M2 and will use that to pull into an TP Link n300 AP which i liked because it was priced right and POE.

    Repeating WiFi into metal building

    I was looking at the WeMo / TP Link wifi outlets. They are app controlled and connect to existing wifi networks.

    Repeating WiFi into metal building

    This is a uncontrolled privately owned airport so not concerned so much with access and spectrum concerns, and while I agree this is an ideal solution but a bit more than I was hoping. There is a guest WiFi as well as a WiFi for members and aircraft owners. I am hoping to connect the outlet to...

    Repeating WiFi into metal building

    The only thing I am looking to do is control a Wifi outlet, I dont need high bandwidth. Why would I want PTP over a repeater. Also with PTP wouldn't i need a receiver outside and an AP inside? Seems like if i could fine a repeater with external antenna this would have less moving parts while...

    Repeating WiFi into metal building

    This looks like an outdoor AP, would it work as a repeater? or would i use 2 of these, one to bridge the WiFi then run an Ethernet cable inside to a second which would work as an AP inside the hangar?

    Repeating WiFi into metal building

    I unfortunately do not have the ability to run a cable. This is a metal hangar at an airport, there is decent wifi around, but inside the hangar I cant get cell or wifi signal with the door closed but would like to be able to turn on the engine preheater and let it run for some time. I was...

    Repeating WiFi into metal building

    I am looking for an (hopefully) inexpensive way to extend WiFi into a metal shed. There is wifi outside, but thanks to essentially being a Faraday cage I can not get WiFi into the shed to control a WiFi outlet to turn a small heater off and on. I have been looking a bit but havent quite found...

    HTPC and work PC in one, but two locations.

    HDbaseT 2.0 supports video and USB over cat 6 cable. However I don't know how many HDbaseT extenders support this yet (I know monoprice doesn't yet) so you might end up running 2 cat cables and get a high quality USB over cat extender. In my case I use the extron units (largly because I found a...

    Ultrabook recommendations

    8.1. I am not a huge fan of metro, but I am going to give it a few weeks and see how i grow into it. There seem to be some decent performance gains baked in

    Ultrabook recommendations

    I ended up getting the Cabon X1. I considered the Macbook, however I am not interested in OS X. Overall I've liked it so far. My only complaint is the active buttons along the top of the keyboard. I often find myself accidentally hitting them with the way I hold my hand when using the direction...

    Ultrabook recommendations

    I am looking for recommendations on an ultrabook. I am coming from an older thinkpad x200 convertible. I got it just about 5 years ago and its been a great laptop. It still runs quite well with an SSD and I am fairly happy with it. However the battery is shot and that has got me thinking...

    Looking for Android App recommendations. $5 promo codes for favorite recommendations.

    I decided rather than pick favorites, i put everyone's name who submitted an app onto a piece of paper and drew out of a bowl. Figured with all the great apps this would be easier than picking favorites for my 2 choices. Congrats to Vermillion, Bone_Enterprise, FiveFig. YGPM with google play...

    Galaxy S4 HSPA+ vs. HTC One LTE?

    I personally love the HTC One, HTC seems to be more committed to updates from what I have seen and having HTCDev.com to unlock my phone's bootloader is a nice touch (you still have a bit of a cat and mouse game with the carriers however for root to unlock). I upgraded from the HTC One X to the...
