So I'm looking to help my buddy out with his home office network and was hoping to get some suggestions on the best way to go.
He's on a fairly large property with two buildings:
Garage / Main Office (Where main Arris router and connected Nighthawk X6 AC3200 WiFi Router are connected)
Main House (Where Matching Netgear WiFi Range Extender is located to leech signal from garage)
The problem is, even with the Range Extender placed near their window, the signal is spotty at best. The distance between their garage office and main house is approximately 700ft.
They're also running a NAS to the Nighthawk, which office computers in both buildings need to access at all times of the day for their business.
My question is what would be a stronger, more reliable alternative instead of the Range extender in the Main House? The Nighthawk isn't strong enough to shoot signal that far, so would they need to have another line ran to the house?
