    Right, I need some help!
    I live in some holiday cottages in the middle of nowhere, we pay for 8mb/s broadband but BT can only give us 500kb/s, we have tried with other providers but because of the distance to the distributor (or whatever the technical term is) this is about as good as it will get in the near future.

    Back to the holiday cottages- we live on a site of 9 holiday cottages, mostly converted barns, with extremely thick walls. In our house we have a BT Business-hub Wireless router, and this covers most of the house. The cottages cover a small area, probably about 100m max width across (but with very thick walls).

    What we are wanting is to offer wi-fi connection into all the cottages, or at least part of all of them. Currently we run a USB dongle system which is useless, the connection is slow (no 3G) and doesn't work inside- plus we only have two and they are becoming more and more demanded between 9 cottages.

    Could somebody please float a few ideas how we could do this? Hopefully without us having to change our current BT hub (which is model BT2700HGV)

    Ideally we would have to use minimal wires- we cannot reach 6 of the cottages through a wire because they are on the other side of the drive (and laying a cable would be too costly).
