My neighbour has just built a garden shed and wishes to setup a pc with internet in the shed. My obvious suggestion was wireless however they already have this but do not pick it up down in the shed (approx 30m from the house). Therefore i think the best setup would be to run an ethernet cable from the wireless router to the pc - is this the best way?
I was looking at just buying a 30m crossover cable, will this work?
FWIW, I used a pair of Cantenna units with standard Linksys hardware a couple of years ago to go 3/4 mile, it was direct line of sight with no obstructions. It did have some issue during hard rain, but other than that, it worked well.
