input please

I live in a farm and the main house has a wireless router.

a half a mile from the house we have a barn, is there a gadget that i can use to amplify or to boost the wifi connection so i can get internet connection from the barn to the house or vice versa?

thanks

If there is a clear line of sight path between the two, you can install two outdoor wireless APs to create a point to point link and then you can install another AP in the barn.

You could either get a MikroTik or Ubiquiti radio with a directional (yagi) antenna, or do like LLigetfa See Profile suggests.

You could get a pair of these: »www.cyberguys.com/product-detail···id=48078 on either end, and a simple Wifi access point / router on the barn end.

OK, so I'm confused... Sounds like two options (A or B), so can you elaborate on how option (A) would work?

IMHO there is no way a single high power directional antenna equipped radio would work. The client presumed to be low powered, non-directional, would be very unlikely to return the distance.

You need one on each end. You can then either plug directly into the end device with a client or another distribution device like a router or AP.
