subbu ... this is a 'remote' area and the club buys "radio tower" Internet service that is provided via a router at the 'rec center.' (No cable or ADSL in the surrounding country.) The router is housed 250 m from my lot and with some trees in the way. In order to get the wifi signal at my lot I needed a high-gain antenna and 1000mW wireless adapter (sometimes called a dongle as I understand.) as shownhere
. I tried the Alfa 1000 with the rubber ducky antenna (vs the high-gain antenna) at another lot closer to the router and it was not strong enough to get a signal...so the antenna was a good move on my part. I am pretty pleased.
3G and 4G work for people who have such service with their cell plan, but cell reception here is spotty at best. A few people get some 3G/4G internet because they have fancy cell plans. But a cell reception booster would also be required for stable service.
Chappo and Kurt ... here are some shots ...
This is looking out from our lot toward some distance foothills ..
This is looking into our lot ...
This is my "shed" that I've just overhauled.. got rid of a sofa bed that was not used and built two storage units. The used computer desk was a great "Kijiji" find...oak desk and hutch for $25.
