Windows 7: Set up Wireless Security Camera

Set up Wireless Security Camera

I have a router right now. I want to put a security camera outside, but all my hardware is downstairs. It would be very hard to use an Ethernet connection. So, would it be good to put a router in my garage as an access point, and then direct connect a camera?

I may be wrong here, but I think what you might want is a bridge. It would be like an access point to bring a signal out to the garage, and then wire into the camera.

Are there any wireless cameras?

Yea, I have tried them before, but the quality is very rough.

Whats the difference between a bridge or AP?

Again, I may not be 100% correct on this, but here goes. They accomplish the same thing, but in different ways. The access point brings wireless out to a distant location by connecting to the existing network in a wired fashion. The bridge does the same, but uses wireless from the existing network to bring wired connections out to a distant location.

The AP is wired to the network and connects to client/end users by wireless. The bridge uses wireless to connect to the existing network and brings a wired connection to the clients/end users.

That's why I'm thinking a bridge might work as opposed to an AP.

An other solution is to setup a Powerplug (ethernet over electric cabling)-(one in the garage and the other attached to the router).
I myself uses D-Link powerplugs to do just the same thing and it does the job perfectly.
The only drawback is: it costs something..
