After getting tired of fooling around with boosters, antennas, etc, I 
finally ran a Cat 6 direct burial cable out to the shop, which is a 
metal pole barn, and being such, relatively impervious to WiFi. That 
solved the problem of connecting my shop computer to the net (but of 
course raises the whole other issue of time wasting net surfing out in 
the shop...).   Anyway, now I could use wifi out in the shop since my 
iPad and phone can't connect to the wifi inside the shop.  I have a four 
port switch out there I am using to connect the computer and my solar 
panel stuff to, so I have room for an access point.  I'm looking for a 
recommendation for an inexpensive, reliable access point; I don't need a 
booster or range extender since it's only got to work inside my 24 x 48 
foot shop building.
