Solved obtaining wifi signal outside my house to a ring cam

Specs: Windows 10
is there a service near San Mateo, California that can assist me.

My router is at the rear of my home. I am trying to get a strong 2.4 signal to the front of the house (about 100 ft away) through a metal garage door to reach a RING floodlight cam system which is installed at the front of the house, outside. I have a Linksys EA 9200 router and am using two extenders but the signal is very week.

There are homeplug adapters/devices which incorporate wifi as well as an ethernet port.

One of those plugged into a mains outlet as close to the ring camera may well allow the link you need.

Not being currently in Canada/USA I can't advise on specific models/makes over there; but in the UK top of the list would Devolo - the original and in my view still the best.

However a look-see on amazon.com does bring up a few makes; and one I would not advise is tpLink. It has a flakey reputation in some areas with some of its kit; though not all (to be fair). Netgear is generallyOK; as is D-link. Have a look at the list here and see what might be viable?

The advantage of Amazon of course is that you can usually return items if they don't work...?

The advantage of homeplug devices is that they usually work out of the box... However you have to be sure that the wiring circuits they plug into are all on the same fuse box/breaker panel; and that all of them either are on the same RCD/GFI device, or none of them are.

You say: "I have a Linksys EA 9200 router and am using two extenders but the signal is very week."

Can you elaborate a little more on the extenders; what makes/models are they; and how are they configured?
