Default good long distance router?

Hello, I'm renting out two houses that're across the street from each other. I want to be able to offer wifi included with each house. I would like to do this with the same internet, and just use a long range router. Can anyone suggest a good router I can buy to provide wifi for two houses across the street from each other? (I plan on getting Time Warner by the way)

also I heard ac routers are longer range, is that true?

thanks!

Wish there was still a thanks button in off topic.. :thumbsup:

Honestly, you ought to know by now that you'd get a response like this. XDA is a developers forum, not a bloody helpdesk in a shop.

Stick a range extender near the windows in both buildings and voila, WiFi.

The simplest solutions are often the cleverest. They are also usually wrong.

Hi! May be you should make a transparent radio bridge with two devices such like this: http://goo.gl/YsnYQ?

We successfully used them for more than 10km of direct vision distance. In real situation bridge speed is around 50-70 Mbits. These devices are very easy configurable.
