Okay so I dont know if this is the right place to post this...but I I really need help from someone who knows their bleep about the internet (cabling, wireless and extenders). This is the situation: I live in an area where I cannot for the life of me get good wired internet. I recently got satellite but the ping makes it very challenging for most things. My familys good friend whom lives around 1000 feet from me has fiber optic.... yes I know wow why cant I right? I live in a kind of...grey area... so she has gladly agreed to let us use her internet as she is old and doesnt use it for much. I need to know from you guys what would be the best way to wire her internet or extend it (or a combination) to my place. I really hope it is possible to accomplish with reasonable ping and packet loss. TIA!!

First things first do you have a clear line of sight from your location to hers free from obstructions? Is there an elevation difference from your location to hers, if there is how much? If there are obstructions in your line of sight how high are they? Becuase in order to have a stable signal you need at least 60% clearance of the obstruction. These questions need to be answered first.

From my house it goes down about 50m to a river and then uphill about 150m-250m to her house. There is dense forest between the two house too but her house is altogether about 10-20m higher than mine.

Do you have Google Earth? With Google Earth, you can properly measure distance & elevation and view the elevation profile. So you know what you are dealing with.

This is what I am working with. Would I use a mixture of cables and extenders or cables and repeaters or … ? Any help is greatly appreciated.

 

Edit: There is a 30ft elevation from my house to theirs.

The highest point of the elevation profile is your friend's house which is 7,606 feet above sea level. While yours is 7,471. Your friends home elevation is 135 feet higher than yours. While outside of your friends home can you clearly see your house?

So let me make sure I understand. From your house, you can see her roof is that right?
