You try a powerful wireless "N" WAP?
PVC conduit is not that expensive, especially for 100ft, that's 10 sticks max.

Dig down (or just rent a trencher) 1-2' and bury the PVC then get a fishtape and pull 2-3 runs of cat5e. Why 2 or 3? In case some of them don't work or stop working down the line.

It's all 1 pull so just setup for 3 and pull all three at once.

burying it is the most sensible, but as someone else said, they've had open-air cable for 5+ years just fine, so maybe you can just get away with that.

I guess I'd do whatever is easiest for you, and if something goes wrong, then try the more difficult method.
Haha I didn't even notice that! Lmao


I think I'll just PVC it and bury it. Safest route from lawnmowers, trucks, etc.

Use CAT 6, run it in a plastic tube, job done.

You'll want to run it from a switch to a switch, and make sure they're both decent quality ones, a NIC may not have the power to run over a cable that length. It's certainly a usable length with the right equipment at each end.
Use cable certified for exterior use, and the idea of running it through a plastic duct is also a good one. I'd suggest either a single solid length of tubing, or using a sealant on any joints you have to put in.
If it runs at a low speed or has a lot of packet loss, you will want to find something that will put a little boost to the signal.
Also check local laws if the cable run will cross any streets or other people's property.

Yea, but each one has to have ends and sealed to keep water out.

Also, make where it hits to building is protected! We had one building that had the fiber optic cable well buried, but when it got to the building it was a bare cable coming out of the ground and up a wall. Well when ever some guy came by to weedwhack the area, it cut the cable, and the cable had to be re-layed.

Two extenders would be much much more than 50.00 dollars worth of cable and pvc piping ( which I already have ). I bought a ****ty Netgear from bestbuy today, and I think it would be a bigger pain doing two extenders than it would be to just run some cable.
Didn't know it was all on your property. Since the materials for wired ethernet are already available to you and it's your property (i.e. you can control what's walking/digging near your line), sure give that route a try. Still seems to me like it would be easier to hook the two buildings up wirelessly, but I could just be being lazy.

Regardless, give us some speed and line quality tests when all is said and done.

It would be too expensive.

It would be awesome if you posted pics of the whole process.

I would definitely enjoy seeing how you go about doing this.
post #20 of 23
It's a little more expensive than standard (cat5e/or cat6), but you can buy Cat6 flooded core, direct burial ethernet cable. It runs around $150/1000 foot roll. I don't know if it can be bought cut to shorter lengths, but I'm sure a search of the webs would let you know.

That is if you don't feel like doing the PVC conduit thing.
