I think I am pushing the limits of wifi. But here it is: I have a home network consisting of an Asus RT-AC3200 as the router connected to a cable modem on the ground floor, an Asus RT-87U access point upstairs and an Asus RT-52U repeater on the front porch. All working beautifully.
But I have a 3000 sq foot pole barn about 100 feet from the house. I was attempting to usensure an Asus RP-AC68U repeater to grab the signal it can get and repeat it throughout the pole barn along with attaching some wired devices to it. But the signal from the house to the barn is apparently too weak for the RP-AC68U to connect.
I knew full well I wouldn't get blazing speeds but just to maintain a connection for lower bandwidth requirements would have been adequate.
To test my theory, I moved the RT-52 outside and it seemed to work for the AC68U. Obviously I can't leave the repeater outside since it isn't waterproof.
Any suggestions on what to do?
