At my home I have a LAN with very fast internet (120Mbit/s). On my roof I installed a Wi-Fi access point to get good Wi-Fi around my house. About 200meters (600feet) from me a friend lives and I want to give him access to my LAN. He also has a LAN with printers, media players, etc.
How would I connect his LAN to mine?
I have done a test. I have a spare Wi-Fi router which I can configure for Client Mode and also Bridge Mode.
In Bridge Mode I managed to configure it to connect to my access point. The laptop connected to the spare Wi-Fi router nicely, got an IP address from my LAN, and an internet connection was possible but was extremely slow. Took about 1 minute to just open the Google search page.
In Client Mode I could not get anything.
My question is, is Bridge Mode the way to go? Did I maybe misconfigure something? Or should I try harder to get Client Mode working?
My Wi-Fi access point is simply in AP mode. Is there some other setting that would be better to use for a Point to Point connection? If I can't use my own Wi-Fi access point that's no problem.
