  1. I am looking for ideas on the best way to have wireless connectivity between multiple buildings on a property.I have a house where the satellite internet comes in. there is a TP-Link ac1900 router (Archer C9) in a upstairs bedroom. Downstairs there is a TP-Link AC750 wifi range extender. There are 4 sonos speakers in the house. There is a garage that is around 240 feet away from the house. There is a line of sight to the house. In the garage, wireless access is needed for cell phones, laptops, and there are 2 (possibly adding a 3rd) sonos speakers. Currently, there is an additional AC750 range extender being used in the garage that barely picks up the wifi signal from the house. I am looking for the best way to wirelessly connect the 2 buildings. The most important thing is that the sonos speakers all work on the same network...so whatever music is playing in the house should play in the garage as well. Let me know if any other info is needed.

    Access point for long range wifi to the garage: https://www.ubnt.com/unifi/unifi-ap-ac-outdoor/ this would be mounted on building A and point to garage. The garage should then have wifi provided by the Access point mounted on building A. Not necessary to have any other access points in garage.
    If distance is an issue, perhaps a wifi bridge would be better...
