Extending to shed

Hello

 

I have just installed an Orbi RBR850 with 3 satellites into my house. All working well

 

I would like to have wi-fi in my shed which is 30m from the house

 

There is an existing fibre optical cable already in place and wanted to ask the forum how I can get wi-fi here without having to add another satellite (cost)

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks

Re: Extending to shed

Is the fibre optic coming from the house or from your isp? 

Current setup: CM2000-> RBKE963B-> Trendnet TEG-S380-> GS716T-> pi-hole

Re: Extending to shed

I have a transmitter in the house and a receiver in the shed. Not connected to ISP

 

My Starlink is connected by ethernet to my Orbi so I can pop an ethernet cable into the back of this and then into the transmitter. The receiver has an ethernet port.

 

Does this help?

 

Thanks

Re: Extending to shed

I've never setup a home fibre line. 

If its acting as a basic ethenet connection between the 2 points (with what you have setup), you should just be able to add a satellite to it. 

Again, thats all dependant on how you have it setup.
