I posted about this in H/A but I figured I might get more help here and more advice.
So I'm in Iraq working with a Drilling rig and our wifi is the shits. We are allowed to use the rigs wifi which is about a kilometer away, we have little usb wifi devices that have extended range but you have to be in the exact right spot to have internet.
So what we would like to do is extend our internet with a laptop then rebroadcast so we had wifi in our little shack. I'm not sure if its possible but that would be awesome if we could do that.
Failing that I'd like to setup a router that lets me take their wifi, then we could hopefully rebroadcast our own network with our own passcode. What do I need to do this? I imagine a router, with a portable antenna that we could place in the roof while running the router inside. Anytihhng else and what would be the best way to do this. I'm in country for another 19 days, then out for a month, then back in again so if I have to order anything it wont be an issue.
