    OK, job jobbed! After a bit of cable running, and jiggery pokery I have a working system!!
    Edimax in the roof.jpg
    One edimax access point in the roof space of the stable, with one of the antennas connected to an external Yagi:

    Pointed back at the house (you can just see the white guttering on the bungalow, behind he neighbors wall!!):

    PoE switch connected to the DVR CCTV recorder, 50m cable run to the Edimax (PoE powered).
    At the house end there is a PoE injector, and the same Edimax access point in the roof space, connected to the same Yagi antenna.

    After a bit of a learning curve on the setup of the Edimax's it all works!! I think it's pretty close to the limit of the system, but we have real time video camera feed from the stable block!

    Not bad for my first attempt at a remote wifi system!

    Thanks for sharing! Like it a lot

    Where did the Yagi come from if you don't mind me asking? I am going to need to do one like this soon and the parabolics i usually use aren't going to work as they are too wide.

    Seems overkill?

    A pair of Ubiquiti Nano stations would surely do the job

    I wasn't so sure. You'd still need the PoE devices and cabling, and the range is dependent on the antenna, according to their website. Also the whole shooting match would have cost twice as much, for virtually the same work.

    I'm nothing if not tight! :-)

    Used Nano's on 1mile links with no issue at all.

    And similar deliberant 5M-18's with no line of site at .25Mile and full 100Mb bandwidth ( well they say 300Mb but the lan ports are only 100Mb!!! makes the wifi throughput a joke! )
