Specs: ?
I recently built a summer house at the bottom of my garden for the kids. It's super insulated (foam backed with silver foil type stuff). Whilst it was being built I tested the wifi signal and before the insulation was fitted the signals was adequate. After the insulation was fitted the wifi is very very poor. What's the best way of getting a good wifi signal into the new building please? the new building is about 25 meters from house

✔ Best Answer
I think the most cost effective,and easiest, would be a pair of point-to-point antennas. I've worked with engenius products before and they make some affordable equipment that will do the job nicely.

And if point to point system isn't for you (and Curt's advice here is very solid) then if you have a power cct. in the summer house, you might consider the homeplug approach. This is lan over mains approach, which uses mains wiring as the network cabling.

Devolo in Germany were the first; they're available the UK and they are excellent. Sadly not yet available in Canada/USA. Netgear, D-link, Linksys/Cisco have them; and so do TP-link. The last one is very low on my list of preferences and recommendation.
