Help getting WiFi/internet to metal building
I have a metal building about 20-25 meters away from the modem/router in my kitchen. I put a WiFi extender on the other side of the house a lot closer to the metal building. The signal from the extender seems to be at full signal right outside of the metal building. Once in the metal building, the 5G is completely nonexistent and the 2.4 hardly cuts through. Any ideas on what the easiest, cheapest solution is? The only thing I can think of is using some kind of outdoor extender or running Ethernet to the building...

Not the cheapest but an Ubiquiti Beam for about $200 would give you primo internet for up to a mile

Was coming to post this. The Nano Beams are solid if you have line of sight between the buildings. They take a little configuration but aren't too terribly difficult to figure out youtube is your friend.

My shop is metal. I tried everything. Wound up running an ethernet cable to it, which connected to one of my Google Mesh pucks. Problem solved.
