How to use ptcl DSL wifi 2KM far?

Hi all,

i am new here and I want to know about ptcl wifi modem. I teach in a school and i want to use my personal ptcl dsl connection in school. My school is 1.5 or max 2KM far from home and i want to know how to increase wifi signal range to that point? I can not get a new connection for school as there is no ptcl coverage. I came to know there are some devices which use to connect and you can increase the range but please can any one explain in detail. Thanks. How much that will cost me and what about signal quality then?

I am hoping i will get perfect answer here.

Thank you.

I am no expert, but here is a cost-efficient do-it-yourself

solution.

A guide on how to make a WiFi booster at home.

The guy has made a booster to 'accept' WiFi signals, so

he has used an "adapter" on his dish. In order to send

boosted signals, he suggests that you put a removable

antenna from a Wifi modem, in the center of your dish.

You will have to take aim and point the center of the dish

in the precise direction of your school, like a gun, from

the roof of your home, or some highrise next door, or

something.

It's pretty simple and straightforward and for a school

teacher, with resourceful pupils, shouldn't be too hard to

put together. Just make sure you use a metal dish. Not

some fibre glass dish they use for getting StarPlus. :)

I am just wondering, would a metal 'tegari', used by masons

in construction work (which is also shaped like a satellite dish)

work equally well in this setup, or do you need something with

holes, like this guy's stainless steel strainer ?.

If so, anybody could use anything they have laying around,

that fits the bill, and be in business. I know we have had some

trouble with getting Qubee/WiTribe signals at our place. Could

we use this thing to boost our WiMax signals at home ?.

First of all, there is no need to start same topic in two different categories. Second, here is the answer to your query:

Two such routers will be required. One costs around Rs 7000.

Setup one at your home and the other one at your school. Make sure both are faced toward each other. These access points consume very low power so, do not worry about electricity bill. Make sure these are grounded properly to protect them from lightning. You may connect them to UPS/Inverters for uninterrupted internet service.

I have tried such tricks but none of them worked for me. Every metal is not able to receive signals of desired frequency.

Signal boosters are available in markets. You may use them if your budget allows you.

best and cheap option available is tp link TL-WA5210G out door CPE . I'm using them and work best for me and it cost me around 4800 each.

bhabroo is right!! ive heard alot about this device... Does it transfer data smoothly if there are buildings in the center? and what is the range of it ? i mean how many km ??

it manily require you to have a wireless bridge for PTP wireless link may help you most likely the nano bridge is used these days for proper connectivity ....

Kind Regards

If there is no 2.4 Ghz Traffic in your area then you simply need to use TP Link Access Point at both Ends. There are several ways , Depend on your Budget.
