A metal shed is what we call a Faraday cage. That's physics and no (RF) product can break the laws of physics. So yes, you have to bridge it somehow. Even if....
You place a WiFi to Ethernet Client box just outside and run a short Ethernet to inside which you place a WAP or "Router as a WAP."
The nice part of this (common) setup is that your external WiFi to Ethernet Client box can be placed where it works best. Don't put it in the shadow of the building (RF shadow...)
I never give a nod to any specific client, WAP or router as a WAP since there are some hundred models available.
Hello all, I have spent some time searching the internet for my answer but I’m still confused on what I should do. I have a metal shop about 350 feet away from my house, if I’m outside of my shop I can pick up WiFi signal, as soon as I’m inside I lose it. I found a bridge that will give me better signal and I feel it’s the easiest way, I don’t want to run and bury cat5 cable, but I’m confused on how to hook up the wireless inside the shop using the bridge. Any input or other ideas appreciated. Thanks.
