I've recently moved into a cabin which is about 100 feet from a standard WiFi router. My computer's antenna is good enough to get signal from the router but an antenna would improve the reliability of the connection. There is a satellite dish with in situ coax cable currently on the cabin, so I wondered if it could be used as an external antenna. I'm happy to do whatever work is necessary but the simplest solution would seem to be connecting some sort of repeater or network switch (?) directly to the existing coax if possible. I've seen other solutions that involve replacing the dish feedhorn with a wireless antenna, which seems possible albeit more work, but I still wouldn't know what to put on the other end of the wireless antenna cable. My computer is a Chromebook with only two USB-C ports, so for that reason and because I'd like to connect my phone, ideally the signal in the cabin would be wireless, not wired.
- Is this possible?
- If yes, how would I go about looking for the correct electronics equipment to attach?
- If not, what would be the easiest thing to do instead?
