Connecting to a host Wireless network when not line-of-sight


Hi all

My remote station is hosted at a local farm and has a Teltonika router that connects (or rather connected) to the farm's WiFi, using the latter as its WAN connection. This has worked fine, but now the farm has changed ISP and their AP has moved to a point where it is no longer line-of-sight to my router - actually its WiFi antenna - because there's a metal barn in the way!

I've been looking at some sort of WiFi extender, or better still a PoE WiFi Client that I can place in line of site to their AP and connect to my router over Ethernet. I tried the TP-Link CPE-210 but it requires both ends to be from the same family and I have no control over the host network: I'm just another client.

I was wondering if anybody had any suggestions?

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
