hi guys little from simple Wi-Fi in this video I'm going to walk you through setting up a pie fight between two locations where the host network does not have adequate signal for the firefighter pick up so the pie fight needs enough adequate signal coming out of the host Network for the host router location in order to grab it and repeat it through a second location in this scenario we have a host router being blocked by a bunch of containers that metal is really blocking the signal that didn't help the Wi-Fi grab enough so that it could be repeated back at this second home now the ISP is providing an Internet line to the front of the property where the host network is but the tenants of this land lived in the back and they were having to pay for a second Internet line because the ISP didn't want to provide Internet to the second location so they're getting a second Internet line from a cellular tower so they were doing a cellular to Wi-Fi setup which we have done a whole nother video on that scenario you but that the owner of this house said you know what there's a fire out there I can grab the signal from the home the host Network and repeating the second location illuminating the expense on the multi internet for the second home from the cell towers and just keeping the monthly service from the ISP and bring that internet back to the second house you you now since that host network is very closed some containers even though it's on a window the containers are blocking the signal from reaching all the way back here strong enough so that multiple users can connect and stream and do everything that is in this house so they were very bandwidth heavy users we actually installed an antenna to reach over the top of those containers and being the signal so it has the best line-of-sight back to this pipe I here we were able to see a huge improvement from bringing that signal up and above all the instructions to be able to reach this pipeline so as you can see behind me I've got the pipe I set up with a directional panel and directional is really good for this situation because we're going to be doing a point-to-point location whenever you've got a fixed location you always want to go direction and you can see it's about 200 yards 150 yards 200 yards from where we're looking at I'll do the final calculation later when I get back to the computer or the drone and Google Maps but it's quite a ways away and we're getting excellent speeds the directional is 14 dB I so keep that in mind it's 32 degree radiation cones so you want to put it right in the middle of that cone for the best possible connection all right so let me show you the connection going from up top down into the office and I'll show you the 5 five setup page so you can see what kind of signal strengths we're getting okay so that's the PI Phi up there on the roof that's looking at the host Network and I'm running cable all the way down down two that hole right there all right and we're gonna tidy all this so this is just right now for the video we've come into the main office you see a guy the cable coming out [Applause] coming up and it's going into that router right there into the LAN port okay the PIO is providing power both lights are on and there's Wi-Fi over this whole system so we're gonna connect this computer is currently connected to that router and what I set the gimbal down just so you can see now this is someone's actual office so it's not a professional set and you see we're connected to the neck here 93 signals coming from the neck here at the host you can see we click on stats today – 38 but closer to zero the better and see here we have a noise and signal and bar so red is noise you want this red bar will be as far away well are as possible then we go over to the speed test now we're about 150 our schooling hours away and everybody was second thing 45 briefs the best I've seen so far is on 60 down pretty much do someone we're averaging about 40 to 50 de minimis down so the fastest I've seen on us so far as well so there's an excellent connection between the two very easy to set up once we got the over the containers and okay so now we're at the host Network and as you can see this was the original Netgear just so happens to be in that gear but it's a cellular gateway modem provided by the ISP and this contain these containers are blocking our line of sight so just for reference remember those containers when we go outside I'll show where the antennas pointing in order to get an antenna onto this network so that we can transmit AC there's no external antennas coming out of this we actually use a Nighthawk AC 1900 with detachable antennas so I went from one of these ports in the back of the Gateway down to a new Netgear no this is just set up and I'm providing it in the LAN port and I took off one of the antennas and I connected 20 feet of L 400 cable to get up to the top and I even used a right angle SMA to help not kink that cable so I'm using very low loss cable high-grade half-inch cable we're gonna try to fix this up and run it through the wall but for right now running it through the window and this kind of this solution is really easy because you don't have to do any new network configurations it's just a it's a network on top of a network right onto that and now everything going outside is going through this antenna so it's a really easy way a non techie way to create a new network special for outside and then you can real able this to be the same SSID as everything else outside and make your life really easy but this is what we had to overcome let's go up to the roof you so the wind picked up when I got up on and the footage came out a little bit too noisy well basically what I'm doing is I'm connecting the Elle 400 cable to the back of the directional yagi and that's what I'm using to bridge this gap over the containers to the PI Phi so the Yaqui is a 14 D bi-directional 2.4 gigahertz antenna and it's very directional it means you have to point directly at the signal location so it's almost like a flashlight between the yagi and the PI Phi you want to aim these two lights together in order to get the best possible connection over this distance so if you have any questions comments or concerns of course feel free to reach out at support at simple Wi-Fi comm

    Hey, what would be the simplest solution to get wifi to a point 300 feet away from a house. There's no electrical outlet there, it's just a device that needs to be connected to the wifi. Thank you.

    This is the best long range wifi vid I've seen so far. That drone footage was amazing! Thank you for this video!

    Is there any benefit or drawback for that matter with combining the two sma connections on the back of a dual antenna AP by using an sma Y adapter and then plugging the single other end into an outdoor antenna?

    Hey so I live out in the country. Rice farmers outside of Sacramento. And being in the country cell signal is bad, no mainstream internet providers such as at&t or Xfinity so we found a guy who does satellite internet and it was working for a month then the wifi crapped out and didn't work again and he was the only company that had the slightest signal that reached us. Any ideas on what to do in this situation??

    I have a question if you can help me out.I want to put some wirreles antennas at a hotel.3 of them outside.and i want them to make like a bridge so it will look like 1 name(ssid) and
    It will automatically connect you at the antenna that you get better signal.they will be connected on a switch.Do you know what type on antennas i need?Thanks

    You stated that the distance of the broadcast for the yagi was roughly 150yds. Will lose internet speeds the further out I go with a pifi our will it maintain the same upload and download speeds at different distances?

    I have a very steep hill in the way. If I put the Pifi at the top of the hill pointed at the host how far can I run the ethernet cable? It is about 150' from where I would put my router. Would I have any signal loss?

    Does pifi work at the host end AND the receiving end? When do I need both? If I only want one, what are the tradeoffs?
