Get some good wifi 6 mesh routers to extend range. Single router won't work.

Lol I wouldn’t even know what’s good these days there’s too many options on the market

No consumer modem/router is going to cover that. Best bet is to use a pair of Ubiquiti airfiber point to point access nodes. https://ubiquitistore.com.au/product/ubiquiti-5ghz-airfiber-dish-23dbi-slant-45-af-5g23-s45/ If the company is paying and you want to have 1gbps from the house to the granny flat, then go the 60ghz option. It’s total overkill, but if you’re not paying….


mcmcmcmc10220

Thanks for this! So I’m assuming any modem with this will give me the range I need?


gasmanc

Yes, any modem and this will link your two buildings as if you had a wire between them. But it’s exactly that, think of it as a point to point wireless link, you’ll still need an access point on the granny flat side to connect wirelessly and if you want a wired connection, then you’ll need to add a switch.


gasmanc

Since you have fibre - if you’re plan is a gigabit plan, and if you’re budget extends to it I’d get: Unifi Dream Router for your end terminating from the fibre NTD (this has WI-FI as well as an integrated switch) A pair of the 5ghz (or 60ghz of your company will allow. The 60ghz link will allow you to get close to 1gps speeds at your granny flat) point to point nodes For the granny flat: A 5 port (or more if you need it) unifi switch A unifi wireless access point (u6-lite, u6 pro, u6 mesh etc)

Doesn't the UDR have a max throughput of 600mbps for wireless?


gasmanc

600mbps at 2.4ghz 2.4gbps throughput at 5ghz It’s wifi6 But that’s the combined throughout for all clients It’s not realistic to get a 1gbps WI-FI connection to your phone in most circumstances.


macmanluke

Yep i do this with a pair of ubiquiti loco nano ac

Check for Dlink, tp link, asus ax1800 or ax3000. Some of my friends using xiaomi 3000 and working great.

If price isn't an issue, buy Mikrotik rb5009 for router and some Ruckus R750 for AP to setup a mesh.


mcmcmcmc10220

I think this is exactly what I need, thank you!


N2h85

You can't go wrong with this combination. This combination can even handle wifi connection for a theatre stable and fast


mcmcmcmc10220

Thanks I’m going to give this a shot


mcmcmcmc10220

I will add these to the list of research


paulm1927

How do you get power down there? Would a power line adapter bridge the gap?


mcmcmcmc10220

Power.. like electricity?


paulm1927

Yes, you can use some adapters to put Ethernet over the power cables. Search for powerline adapters.


mcmcmcmc10220

Hmmm I might ask my electrician about this tomorrow


N2h85

Don't use powerline. Your speed will depend on the quality of powerline ( normally really shit) and if there is a circuit breaker in between, your speed will get fu*k. Just use a good mesh wifi system.

The problem with a wireless solution is that is bad weather it can impact on your connection quality. If you can run underground a cat5 cable I would do that instead.
