Good day,

I have a question about sharing a wireless network. My folks have a wireless network with a desktop and a laptop in their home. My home is 400 feet directly behind theirs and we'd like to have me able to access their network. I have a wifi adapter in my desktop but have been unable to connect to their network. Their router supposedly has a 1000 ft. range and still no luck.

Any suggestions on how we can achieve this? It's a straight shot back on level ground; however, there are a few small trees in between our homes.

Thanks in advance for your help - I appreciate your input. =)

I never heard of 1,000 ft. wireless range. A cat5 cable only promises 300 feet.

You can try replacing one of the antnnas with a directional one with high gain. Then aim it at your desktop. It "may" work.

Do you even see the network being broadcast?
