Wireless and connections

Specs: Macintosh
I have a satellite on a Lodge, connected with a cat 5 to a modem. The modem is connected to a computer in the Lodge and a router, the router is then connected to a d-link ethenet in the upstairs window of the lodge with an antenna attached. From that point there is a house about 350ft with a d-link ethernet with antenna and wired from the d-link to a computer and a router, I also have phone internet on the same computer, which I could cancel if need be. There is another house about 450ft away with a d-link ethernet with antenna and a router. I need all of these connections plus the ability for my six cabins and the seventh cabin which is about 400ft from the Lodge to have wireless internet and all to be secure, especially the two houses. It would also be nice to have faster speed with the internet and not a lot of maintenance.

What kind of lodge and where?

I'm an avid hunter and fisherman........perhaps we could work out a deal on me getting you setup.....LOL

I would look at putting an "omni-directional" antenna on the building with your main internet feed.

I would then look at putting up line-of-sight antenna's on the outlying cabins.

Have a look at eNgenius equipment. It's reasonably priced and likely to be able to achieve whatever you wish with a reasonable budget. Something like the following:


Would likely be all you need. Put one on each building, configure and connect them and you'd have your wireless network.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
