Using a stick USB WiFi adapter, it is possible to plug a USB cable extender into a computer at one end and the USB WiFi adapter at the other end. The maximum distance allowed on such a USB cable is 5m unless a hub is used in between the devices. The USB adapter can then be mounted inside a tin can to help boost the gain.
