I have 100m+ of ethernet wire from a bt hub in one building to another this works fine, but I would like to have wifi in the second building....is there any way to add a wifi hub to the end of this ethernet cable? Its probably a dumb question from a dumb beginner but any help would be appreciated!!

What as Ethernet to do with WiFi, you are talking about two different systems

I suggest he just wants to use the ethernet cable to get to the remote location, then convert to WiFi there. An access point is all that's needed
