So here's the problem. I have two buildings at my place. They are old stone buildings with remarkably thick walls. They both share a phone line, but I only have broadband in one. I need to have broadband in the other as it is my office but have no idea how to do this. I have tried N routers and N adapters, but walls are too thick. They are also about 20m apart and although there is nothing between them, there are no windows facing one another that I could set up a line of sight in. Is there anyway I can set up a connection throught the phone line to my current router?Any suggestions will be much appreciated. Please help as I'm tearing my hair out. Thanks to all who try. E
You could run an ethernet cable from the router. If the buildings are connected by your own land you could trench the cable in a plastic conduit, or suspend it on a catenary wire. At 20 metres you're comfortably under the maximum length for Ethernet.
Use CAT5E external cable if you choose either one of these options - it's specially sheathed in polyethylene to protect it from the weather.
