    Why I would like to extend is because I do not want to contract another service. I have two house, (A) one with the DSL wireless modem and the other one (B) with no network set up as yet. The houses are about 100 or less meters apart with several trees in between. The house where the modem is the primary location, I have a computer there and my family uses the wireless network from the modem to connect to the internet with their mobiles. In the other house, I have a desktop computer and a smart TV which I want to use to connect to the internet, my intention is for video calling.

    I've searched that if I opt for some type of wireless extender, the QUALITY of the network will be reduced by 50%, although the signal will be strong, when it is received by the devices at location (B) and thus my video calling would not work well.

    I am not experienced on networking technologies, but am seeking expert advise on the best option and less expensive, I would not mind if I had to dig up to cross over wires to the house (B).

    In either case, whether wireless or wired, I am looking on the specific equipment, devices and configuration that would let me accomplish having internet on house (B) and some decent internet quality (I understand if I would not get the 100%), as a plus, it would be great if the internet on house (B) is wireless for small devices like 1 phone or 1 laptop.

    802.11n would probably work at that distance, but only if you had clear line of sight. Equipment (antennas, etc.) also exists for outdoor use--install on rooftop--which would do the job.

    For cabling between two buildings it's advisable to have a qualified electrician.

    I really can't advise any more than the above. Buffalo is one manufacturer with such equipment like this antenna.
