Coping with thick stone walls

Go to solution

I live in a renovated highland croft with 3ft thick granite external walls. WiFi signal within the house is no problem but I'd like to extend my broadband into a barn with similar external walls which is also around 15ft from the house.
There is power in the barn with cabling connected the house ring main. I have placed the router in a position as close as possible to the barn and I have also attempted to use the Extender 600 but it tells me that it's "Too Far"

Any solutions?

Look at broadband extenders here http://www.shop.bt.com/mini-sites/bt-connected-home/home/

they use the mains wiring.

You may want to look at the TrendNet Powerline 500 AV2 Adapter Kit as I am lead to believe can do wireless and Ethernet connection.

Powerline adaptors. They use your power wiring to extend your LAN. See diagram here http://www.shop.bt.com/products/bt-mini-wi-fi-home-hotspot-500-kit-9N14.html There are other manufacturers, all will be compatible with your router.
