More WiFi help needed please.

Hi,
I have a Win 7 Home, twin Celeron NUC and can comforably drive my G11/Gemini2 with it, communicating from my PC indoors via my standard WiFi network. The NUC is connected to the Gemini2 via a Cat5 cable. I would like to mount the NUC on the OTA so I don't have the trailing USB cables but the Cat5 cable is the concern. Would I be able to use 2 Wireless Access Points, one on the OTA Cat5 to the NUC and one on the base, Cat5 to the Gemini. Obviously I need 2-way transmission between the NUC and Gemini and I'm a bit (ha!) lost when it comes to WiFi. Whatever devices are chosen, they have to be powered preferably with 12v DC.
Cheers
Charles

Yes.

You can get USB powered devices that bridge ethernet to wireless.

You can see more details here: http://gemini-2.com/travel_routers.php

The above should give you an idea on how to progress.

Thanks Chris, I had forgotten about that site. I've just ordered 2 TP-Link TL-WR802N's which should make it work.
Cheers
