    what is a best way to bridge 2 apple airport extreme wirelessly over outdoor distance? the house has thick adobe walls, i cannot connect them directly.

    i've a situation with 2 detached houses - see pic.
    how can i bridge them on a single network?

    imagining WIFI bridge outdoor in the middle of the courtyard that would connect both. just never used any application like this.

    advice?

    Ubiquiti Nanostation Loco M5's. Get a pair of them. Throughput at that range should be nearly 100mbps wire-speed Ethernet.

    You would be best served by using an external solution like markie posted. If that is not feasible or affordable then you would best be served by placing both units in the windows with second one set to extend.

    No problem let me know if you have setup issues they aren't totally intuitive.

    This. I've installed Loco M5s in identical situations a handful of times with some of them hundreds of feet apart without any hiccups.

    Make sure you have line of sight with airports, might be flaky, for anything permanent I'd also recommend the loco's
