Question

Wireless network bridge with an ap on the remote location

Is there a device that I can buy that will transmit the network from my house to a second building and then on the building connect to that signal with a client router or something? The second buildings wifi needs to transmit outdoors.

Answer
That would be a WiFi to Ethernet Clinet.

Such bridges shall be line of sight without walls or such and for reliable operation 100 feet or less.

So any old WiFi to Ethernet Client will do then that Ethernet goes to your choice of router or WAP. Which you choose is by your design. If you choose a router then you have a little more choice since all the routers I've used over the years can be turned into a WAP.

Access point

I’d line to use an access point.
Would the engenius ens202ext ap be able to bridge the two places and at the remote place would this device also work as a router?

Would I be able to bridge wifi with the engenius ens202ext?
At the location that I bridge it to could the ens202ext also work as an wirless ap So I could connect my phone?

Sorry but an Access Point is not a bridge.

If you found one, please share the link to it.

Here the usual setup is:

(Your WiFi) -> WiFi Client --(Ethernet)--> WAP or Router.

Your choice.

Here I will share setups we've deployed before along with what limitations we set on the setups.


If you have a device in mind, do share it so I can check it out.
