Here is my issue. I recently decided to share a DSL connection with a neighbor via a wireless network. I told him to go and buy the D-Link 54Mbps wireless router (which I know to be a good brand) and we should have no problems. Well, the D-Link ones were gone, so he bought a TrendNet one at about the same speed. The broadcast strength is about 13Dbm and it's minimum indoor transmit range is about 98ft. It is about 100ft from transmitter to reciever (which is in another building). The reciever did not detect the connection at all, so I bought a catenna booster hoping it would push the signal enough to connect. Now it connects, but not consistently and not with a good signal all the time. Do you all think I should just return the catenna and the router and go with the D-Link or is there something I am missing here that could be the cause of the problem.
The signal does have a good bit to go through (household wiring, plaster filled walls, brick outer wall, and all this in both buildings), but I figured it would at least reach the 100ft or less mark to get a decent signal. The catenna is inside and I have aimed it as best as I can, do you think moving it outside with an extender cable will help alot (like worth the money alot) or should I just replace the current equip with what I know to be better equipment?
