Re: wifi extender

1200ft is quite a distance, I'm not sure even with repeaters you'll be able to achieve that.

If you like my post, or solution to your issue/question, go ahead and click on the little star by my name and/or accept the post as the Solution. It makes me happy.

I'm NOT an employee of Best Buy, or Geek Squad, though I did work as an Agent for a year 5 years ago. None of my posts are to be taken as the official stance that Best Buy will take on your situation. My advice is just that, advice.
Unfortunately, that's the bad luck of any electronic, there's going to be bad Apples... wait that's a horrible pun.

Re: wifi extender

If you have a line-of-sight between the business and the home, you may be able to span the distance using a directional antenna at each end... but even then, 1200ft is pushing the limit and weather could have a drastic effect on signal quality at those distances.
