Question

Choosing a router

I have Hughesnet service and a cheap little Belkin router that does fine inside my house. The thing is, I want to use my internet when I am at my parents house next door - about 200 yrds away. We live in the country with no serious obstructions. I can get a signal now, but not strong enough to stay connected. What do I need to buy for a longer reach. (note - I am not trying to steal internet, just want to use my own farther away. Thanks in advance!

Answer
200 Yards is beyond the range of consumer routers.

So that's not going to work. No maker would tell you theirs would work at that range.

Any Other Options?

Thank you so much R, Proffitt. Is there there any other way to accomplish a long distance connect? Hopefully less than an arm and a leg cost?

There are long distance links

But you can find them on Google such as "1 mile WiFi." 200 Yards is so far that you need a 1 mile link.
