    The hookup is
    ISP->Modem->standard router - - - this extender ..............................................remote WiFi access.

    The R1000mw is a 1,000 mw (aka one full watt) of RF output.
    access the site and read

    Thank you but from what it looks like this has to be plugged directly into the modem. I cant do that.

    Unless its your clubhouse, IMO, it sounds like you're trying to access somebody elses wifi.

    I am trying to acess somebody elses wifi. The clubhouse where I live is not secured. I just need a way to pick up the wifi there from my house.

    I think you need to get your own, it don't sound right to me to be trying to get somebody eles's wifi. Like me trying to get wifi from my library, not right.

    I know what your saying but the wifi is for the residents and I am a resident.

    Im a bit less than a 1/4 mile away. But I want something that will reach further so I have a strong signal.
