At my place of work, a lumber/building materials supplier, management wishes to extend the range of our network to the shipping office at the other end of the property -- and to do so wirelessly.
Inside the store, our current modem and wireless router is 80 feet from the exterior wall nearest to the shipping office, and the computer in the shipping office itself is 90 feet farther away from that same wall (all in an east/west alignment). The sales counter in the store is a mere 30 feet from the same exterior wall and could serve as a bridge point between the two locations, or I could mount a device on the wall itself if need be.
How best might I go about enabling a wireless connection in the shipping office computer which is 90 to 170 feet from prime potential router locations? One big mighty router? A series of wireless range extenders? A hope and a prayer?
(I have a spare wireless network adapter card from a computer which is now wired which I will salvage for the shipping office computer.)
